Depression treatment centers may be the right option for somebody that has severe depression, is suicidal and is suffering with alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders or another serious condition.
The centers are designed to help you or your loved one recover and live a healthy, happy life. They combine various treatment strategies that, when combined, can maximize the effectiveness of treating depression. Strategies include medications, therapy, and behavioral skills training, massage therapy, yoga, acupuncture and other techniques. Centers like this take a multi-modality approach that treats the patient on all levels: physically, spiritually and emotionally.
There are many centers across the US and in other countries. When choosing a depression help center that is right for you consider how long they’ve been in business, how diversified are their plans for recovery, does insurance cover any of the costs, what other payment options exist, how long are their programs, what is their success rate, what are the qualifications of their staff, what is their staff attrition rate, and what do other patients say about the facility. Will they give you a few ex-patients to talk to so that you can learn about their experiences?
Here are a list of a few facilities that I know of that might be in your area.

When a patient is admitted to the facility, an intake will be given so that a full, professional assessment can be made and an appropriate plan developed and implemented to effectively treat the depressive illness. It is important to mention that centers like this have come a long way. Instead of the sterile, hospital feel, they are now designed to be very comfortable, cozy and inviting so that the patient feels as comfortable as possible.
Treatment is provided in a non-judgmental, emotionally supportive environment where your safety and comfort is a top priority.
