Depression Treatment Center in South Florida 

Depression is a mood disorder that leads to feelings of sadness, loss, or anger. It can interfere with an individual’s day-to-day life and negatively impact their relationships with others. Depression may also worsen health conditions such as arthritis, asthma, heart disease, and cancer. 

According to Mental Health America, depression is one of the most common mental health conditions. It affects more than 16 million U.S. adults each year. It’s a serious disorder that can worsen without proper treatment.

Symptoms of Depression

Depression affects individuals in different ways. The most common symptoms, however, include:

  • Ongoing feelings of sadness, anger, or anxiousness
  • Fatigue and energy loss
  • Reduced or increased appetite and weight loss or weight gain
  • Loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyed
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • Persistent crying 
  • Slower talking and movement 
  • Thoughts of suicide and death

Treatments for Depression at CBH

Fortunately, depression is a treatable condition. A combination of medications and psychotherapy is usually recommended. At Compassion Behavioral Health, we offer a variety of treatments for patients with depression such as:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) 

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

Group therapy

Individual therapy 

Motivational interviewing 


Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) 


Drug or alcohol abuse is often a cause of depression. That’s why we offer treatments that target both conditions. Between our Substance Abuse Treatment Program and a Mental Health Treatment Program, we can effectively treat both disorders at the same time.

Residential Treatment for Depression

As we understand the enormous impact that depression can have on a person’s life, Compassion Behavioral Health provides a residential treatment program that is especially intended for people who are suffering from severe depression.

Through this program, clients can access a wide range of therapies and receive round-the-clock care in an immersive, supportive environment. In-depth, individualized care is the main focus of our residential treatment program. It includes medication management, individual counseling, and group therapy sessions that address the root causes of depression, coping mechanisms, and how to build a happier, healthier life.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for Depression

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for depression provides a medium ground for those in need of organized care without a need for round-the-clock supervision.

Through this program, clients can attend in CBH’s regular therapy sessions, including CBT, DBT, and EMDR, without sacrificing their ability to return to the housing we provide at the end of the day. The PHP is designed for those who are transitioning out of residential care or who require more extensive therapy than what is offered by standard outpatient programs. It is designed to assist patients in properly managing their symptoms as they begin to reintegrate into their everyday lives.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Depression

Furthermore, people who want flexibility to manage their depression while carrying out regular duties can benefit from our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Depression. Compassion Behavioral Health’s IOP consists of many weekly therapy sessions that include a combination of psychoeducation, group and individual therapy, and assistance for managing symptoms of depression.

For those who have a secure home setting and are prepared to work on their recovery but still need ongoing therapy help, this level of care is ideal. In order to promote long-term recovery, the IOP places a strong emphasis on teaching coping skills, emotional control, and relapse prevention techniques.

At every level of care, including Residential Treatment, PHP, and IOP, Compassion Behavioral Health is committed to giving those suffering from depression a safe, therapeutic environment. Our mission is to equip each individual with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to recover improve their quality of life.

If you or your loved one is struggling with depression, call us today to take your first step toward recovery.
