Types of Depression Treatment
Many people who contact our clinic seeking help for depression will have tried some form of treatment in the past.
People with depression will often seek help from their GP first, who’ll usually prescribe a form of antidepressant medication.
In some cases, medication may be enough to get individuals suffering from depression through a tough time, but for others suffering from more clinical depression they may still be suffering from negative thoughts and other symptoms.
Studies have shown that the most effective way to deal with depression is through a combination of medication and psychological therapies, so that’s what we aim for at Asana Lodge.
We offer a programme of interpersonal therapy for depression, as well as group therapy and family therapy sessions during your stay.
We also offer pioneering therapies Satori Chair Therapy and Biofeedback Stress Reduction, both these therapies have much improved in recent years and work great for those who are unable to take medication for depression.
In addition to traditional treatments, we also offer holistic therapies that can help put you in a better mindset.
We ensure you get physical activity as fitness is shown to have a very big impact in reducing symptoms of mental health. This includes taking regular walks in the countryside as well as fitness sessions, mindfulness and yoga sessions are also carried out alongside these activities. We can also offer therapies such as massages which help you relax during your stay.
How To Spot Depression
There are many different types of depression, from mild to severe, and they can often be associated with another mental health problem such as bipolar disorder or psychosis.
Therefore, it can be tough to get an accurate diagnosis of depression, which is why you need to deal with a qualified mental health professional, rather than trying to diagnose yourself.
However, here are some common symptoms of depression to look out for:
- Ongoing feelings of sadness or hopelessness
- Frustration and irritability
- Losing interest in your favourite activities
- Having trouble carrying out everyday tasks or concentrating
- Feeling worthless
- Getting tearful for no apparent reason
- Difficulty making decisions
- Not wanting to socialise
- Poor performance at work
While depression is a mental health issue, it can also have physical effects on the body. Those suffering from depression may have symptoms such as:
- Changes in appetite – friends and family may notice a rapid weight loss or gain, as well as digestive problems
- Sexual problems
- Low energy
- Slow movements
- Sleep pattern changes – this can be in the form of insomnia or excessive sleeping
- Aches and pains
If you are suffering from a combination of the above symptoms, it may be time to seek help so you can get your life back on track.
About Residential Depression Rehab & Treatment
Our staff of trained professions have a wealth of experience in dealing with people suffering from different types of depression and other mental health issues.

This is because staying with us allows for intensive treatment, and a combination of clinically proven methods to tackle your issues.
Not only do we look at why you’re depressed, but we also aim to give you the tools you need to cope in day to day life.
Spending time away from home can also benefit your treatment as you are able to spend time away from the stress of work and home life, which can help you identify negative patterns of behaviour.

You will also enjoy 24/7 support, so there’s always a healthcare professional on hand when you need them, giving you a better chance of recovery. Those with severe depression may pose a suicide risk, so regular monitoring may be necessary to keep them from harm.
Depression often goes hand in hand with substance abuse disorders such as drug and alcohol addiction, which is known as a dual diagnosis.
This is also something we can help treat through the use of residential addiction treatment in the form of alcohol and drug rehab programmes.
Dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders are known to develop when individuals suffering from mental illnesses such as depression decide to self-medicate using drugs or alcohol which after prolonged use causes an addiction to develop.
As mentioned above, this is also something we can help with as all our treatment programmes are completely bespoke and tailored to towards your own personal circumstances.
Treatment for depression comes in many forms as no individual is entirely the same with many suffering from depression in different ways.
This is why upon admission to our clinic you will undergo an initial assessment with one of our trained psychiatrists so we can develop a deeper understanding of your condition and develop a treatment programme to suit.
The benefit of this is that therapies and treatments will be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you get time to talk through all your issues and can be taught the best methods to deal with the symptoms of your condition.
Aftercare after Depression Treatment
Once you’ve completed your programme for depression treatment, we want to ensure that you still feel supported. That’s why we offer a year of aftercare to ensure you stay on track.
You may need to do follow-ups to discuss any side effects of antidepressant medication, or you may benefit from a support group in your local area.
Some people also choose to continue with CBT or other therapy in the long term, whether they do this online or face to face, so we’ll discuss different options with you.
