What is residential treatment for depression? Patients voluntarily enter a safe, secure facility in which therapy for their depression is the focus of their daily activities. Often, patients who have tried outpatient treatment but find no improvement in their depression symptoms achieve success in a residential treatment program. Residential treatment for depression generally takes place in a structured environment in which patients are removed from the stress and negative factors that promote their depression, and therapists teach the best techniques for coping with depression symptoms. The staff at a residential depression treatment center may also prescribe appropriate medications and work with patients to build their coping skills.
There are many different types of therapy that a residential treatment center may use, depending on each individual's specific needs. Some examples of the types of therapy individuals may participate in at a depression residential treatment center include behavior therapy, nature therapy, experiential therapy, group therapy, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, and other approaches. Patients in residential treatment centers typically begin to see an improvement in how they feel after these therapies are put into place.
