Learn About Depression Treatment

Treatment for depression at Timberline Knolls

Living with depression can be an isolating experience. Unlike a visible injury, the effects of depression may have caused you to suffer in silence, feeling like no one could see how your symptoms were affecting your life. You may feel tired, hopeless, and worried about the future. You may feel unable to work or attend school, to manage your daily responsibilities, or to care for yourself. You may feel unable to engage in activities you used to enjoy, or to connect with friends and loved ones. The effects of depression may even be impacting your body.

At Timberline Knolls, we understand the deep pain that depression can cause, and we’re here to help. Each woman or girl who struggles with depression arrives at our center with a unique set of experiences related to her condition. Your journey to recovery will always be your own, and we will always view you as the true expert on what you need in order to heal. Even if you feel overwhelmed and alone, know that depression is a highly treatable condition. With the right support, you can begin the journey to recovery from depression.

Why Choose Timberline Knolls for Depression Treatment

What makes our depression treatment center successful?

Depression, like other forms of mental illness, is a complex disease that requires a comprehensive treatment approach that addresses each of your symptoms. Left untreated, this condition can cause debilitating damages to the mind and body, and can make it challenging to live a healthy, balanced life.

When you arrive at Timberline Knolls, we’ll thoroughly assess each component of your well-being to gain a full picture of your mental and physical health. Often, girls and women who suffer from depression are also battling other co-occurring illnesses, such as panic disorder, bulimia nervosa, borderline personality disorder, substance use disorders (the clinical term for addiction), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). As we evaluate your presenting concerns, we’ll identify any of these disorders and begin crafting an individualized treatment plan that reflects all of your needs.

Throughout each step of treatment at Timberline Knolls, we’ll collaborate with you to evaluate your progress, set and monitor goals, and make a plan for your eventual discharge. Our goal is to guide you towards returning to your home and community armed with the coping tools and resources you need to continue on the path of lifelong recovery from depression.

What to Expect Prior to Entering Depression Treatment

What happens before admission into depression treatment at Timberline Knolls?

Prior to beginning treatment for depression at Timberline Knolls, our staff will connect with you, your loved ones (when deemed appropriate), and any providers that can assist us in understanding your treatment needs. We’ll review your mental health, physical health, and social histories to identify how your depression has impacted your life to date. From there, we’ll use these insights to begin creating a treatment plan that reflects your innate strengths and unique challenges within the journey to recovery. While you are in treatment, we’ll continue to modify and update your plan as you achieve your goals or require additional support.
