Treatment of Depression

The point of treatment of depression is to treat not just the body, not just the mind, not just the symptoms, but instead to treat the whole person.Depression is a whole person response to a lack of self esteem and lack of identity at worst and at best a sense of temporary loss of control in ones life.

Success with Depression Rehab

Nowadays the cause of depression is thought to be due to chemical imbalances in the brain. Contemporary scientists have come up with a variety of medications to correct those imbalances. Doctors select antidepressants based on their patient’s symptoms but there’s no one magic pill or one magic protocol. Drugs often leave one feeling numb to all emotions and side effects differ, as do their effectiveness. Old school theories around depression acknowledge that when people are not happy, when they feel that life has become impossible or unmanageable, the automatic reaction is a sense of loss of control and thus depression. Depression as a temporary state to induce a positive proactiveness is actually a healthy response when it works.

The point of depression rehab is to treat the whole person, find the cause, and eliminate depression altogether. That is our goal at Tropical Oasis.
