The Connection Between Depression and Substance Abuse
Depression is characterized by feelings of hopelessness and a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. You might experience changes in your appetite, such as weight gain or loss, trouble sleeping, a loss of energy, and difficulty concentrating. While periods of sadness, especially following the loss of a loved one or personal tragedy, are normal, depression is persistent and can keep you from doing things you enjoy or from fulfilling responsibilities at work or at home.
Some individuals who struggle with depression turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. Mental health conditions that are accompanied by substance abuse are known as co-occurring disorders, and this condition can be incredibly common in those who are in treatment for addiction. While alcohol or drugs might mask the symptoms of depression for a short period of time, they can also exacerbate symptoms of depression. Using alcohol or drugs to cope with feelings of depression can cause you to feel worse, and can also lead to addiction and dependence.
Individuals who struggle with depression should be careful about their use of drugs or alcohol. However, a treatment center that offers dual diagnosis treatment can help you heal.
Our Depression Treatment Program
Lotus Recovery Centers offers dual diagnosis programs in our treatment centers, which means that we provide simultaneous treatment for both addiction and mental health conditions like depression. Our approach to treatment combines medication, medical care, and therapy. We believe that this multi-pronged approach helps our clients develop healthy coping skills so that they can avoid relapse and maintain recovery long-term.
- Individual therapy – One-on-one sessions with a therapist can help you understand how depression has impacted your life
- Group therapy – You’ll find support and perspective when you work with others who have been through similar experiences
- Family therapy – Under the guidance of a therapist, you’ll work through past conflict and find ways to overcome future challenges
- Medication – Certain medications can help relieve symptoms of depression and help you feel like yourself again
