What Is Residential Mood Disorder Treatment Like?
Our Residential mood disorder treatment centers give you space from daily stresses. This allows you to focus on yourself and getting better. We use proven therapies to help you recover from mental disorders.
Depression and anxiety disorders frequently occur in people struggling with substance abuse. In fact, people with anxiety or mood disorders are two to three times more likely to abuse drugs than people without these conditions. Treatment for depression and anxiety is tailored to your needs, including dual diagnosis treatment when you suffer from a mood disorder and drug or alcohol addiction. Treatment options may include:
We’ll assess you for mental illness and common co-occurring issues. Examples include substance abuse, sex addiction and eating disorders. If you have a previous diagnosis, we’ll make sure that it’s still accurate or revise it. We’ll ask you about your family history of anxiety, depression and substance abuse. We’ll also find out how these issues are impacting your life.
You’ll meet with our psychiatric team to see how you’re improving. We may prescribe medications, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), to ease symptoms. We’ll make sure you understand how to use the medication and educate you on any potential side effects. We’ll adjust the prescription medication as needed.
If you’ve been abusing drugs or alcohol, a medical detox program may be part of anxiety and depression treatment. Because substances can worsen mood disorder symptoms, it’s important to get them out of your system. This helps us understand which symptoms stem from your mood disorder and which stem from substance abuse. Our medical team makes sure detox is safe and as comfortable as possible. We draw on research-backed medications and alternative approaches.
You’ll meet one-on-one with a therapist to delve into your specific issues. In individual therapy, you can also work on issues you don’t feel comfortable bringing to group therapy. Licensed therapists use a variety of effective approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
Mental health disorders like anxiety and depression can keep you isolated, detached from life and stuck in your head. Group therapy sessions help you reconnect with yourself and others. Sharing with people going through similar struggles helps you feel less alone. Group therapy also helps you learn healthy communication skills and strengthen your self-esteem.
You’ll take part in a variety of alternative therapies. These may include mindfulness, trauma therapies, fitness and massage therapy.
We’ll make sure you have support to keep getting better after anxiety and depression treatment. During Residential aftercare planning, we will help you set up appointments with therapists, psychiatrists and other specialists as needed. We’ll also connect you with support groups and other helpful resources in your area.
Do You Need Residential Mood Disorder Treatment?
Many people with mild depression and anxiety do well with outpatient mental health treatment. Sometimes this involves attending an outpatient mental health treatment program. Another option is seeing a counselor and a psychiatrist for medication management.
More severe, persistent mood disorders may need Residential treatment. Consider Residential mood disorder treatment if you’re experiencing:
- Co-occurring substance abuse
- Severe hopelessness or suicidal thoughts
- Compromised relationships, career or school status
- Difficulty functioning in everyday life/feeling you’re “barely getting by”
- Extreme mood swings
- Disordered eating behaviors
- Persistent irrational fears
- Feeling extremely down or worrying most of the time
- Little improvement with outpatient anxiety or depression treatment

Over 18% of the U.S. population struggles with anxiety each year, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. People seek Residential anxiety treatment for the following anxiety disorders:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) – Excessive and chronic worry that includes anxiety disproportionate to everyday situations.
