Los Angeles Dual Diagnosis

Depression Treatment

If you are struggling with co-occurring disorders, like addiction and depression, don’t be afraid to get help from depression treatment in Studio City. Depression is one of the most commonly associated mental health disorders among people with substance abuse, especially when that depression is undiagnosed and you feel like you have nowhere to turn except to drugs and alcohol for self-medication.

Reach out to Starbridge Recovery to talk about your inpatient depression treatment options.

Learn About Depression

What Is Clinical Depression?

People often misunderstand clinical depression and categorize it as something acute or temporary. It’s completely normal to struggle with symptoms of depression during a traumatic event, immediately following a traumatic event, or every once in a while when life gets stressful.

This might include a few months of depression following the loss of a loved one, after a divorce, during financial hardship, when a family member is struggling, or after a significant move. 

Clinical depression, on the other hand, is a mental health disorder where individuals experience depressive episodes that are not brought about by short-term, unexpected events. The symptoms that manifest can be much worse, last for months at a time, and disrupt daily function.  

People who need Studio City depression treatment also usually need treatment for a substance abuse disorder. Surveys show up to 80% of people with a substance use disorder also experience symptoms related to depression.

Find the Right Treatment

Is There Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Depression?

Yes! In fact, finding the right depression and addiction treatment, also called dual diagnosis depression treatment, is the key to long-term recovery. In situations where you only get treatment for addiction, not depression, it can worsen your long-term impact. With untreated depression, symptoms and depressive episodes return and increase the risk of a relapse, especially for self-medication.

But how exactly does dual diagnosis depression treatment work?


Dual diagnosis treatment starts with an initial evaluation and a subsequent detox. No matter what substances you are addicted to, you must flush out any remaining toxins from your body so that you can start fresh.

Depending on the substances you abused, you might have medication-assisted detox to help you manage more severe withdrawal symptoms. At a proper rehab center, you will enjoy 24-hour supervision during this process regardless, as well as basic over-the-counter and prescription drugs to make you as comfortable as possible for the first few days of your detox.


Once that is over, you start your therapy. Your initial evaluation is critical because specialists at facilities like Starbridge Recovery need that information to create actionable therapy programs.

For example, some individuals might need cognitive behavioral therapy to help with some of these signs and symptoms of their depression. In contrast, others might strive for mindfulness and family-based treatment to help improve communication about the impact of their disease not only on themselves but on those closest to them.

With the suitable types of therapy in mind, we can structure a daily routine for inpatient depression treatment or ongoing outpatient treatment that provides the right combination of individual therapy, group therapy, and holistic practices.


Depending on the severity of your case, medication management might be an essential part of your recovery. Some symptoms of depression need medication to be managed when the depressive episodes arise.

A team of doctors will work with you to review the potential medications you might use and monitor your progress and the effectiveness of each. This is regularly used in conjunction with therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy so that you can learn how to identify triggers, how to control negative thoughts, and when to turn to the proper medication instead of drugs and alcohol. 

Starbridge Recovery has admissions specialists ready to help you start your Studio City depression treatment.

What Are the Signs of Depression?

You should consider finding depression treatment in Studio City when you struggle with depressive symptoms regularly, when they interfere with your daily routine, and when you are turning to drugs and alcohol to deal with it.

Major depressive disorder usually includes signs like feelings of hopelessness, angry outbursts or irritability, and a loss of interest in usual activities like your favorite hobbies or sex. It can interfere with your sleep and appetite, resulting in significantly reduced or increased appetite, sleep problems like sleeping too much, or insomnia. 

Symptoms of depression can cause feelings of worthlessness, fixating on mistakes you’ve made in the past, having trouble concentrating on making decisions, unexplained physical pain, and suicidal thoughts.

  • Depression often manifests with feelings of worthlessness. If you don’t value your life, you will start to pull away from other people, thinking that you don’t deserve love or friendship.
  • Symptoms of depression can be so severe that you stop taking care of yourself. As you start to view yourself poorly and struggle to find purpose in life, you might also stop going to work, fulfilling personal responsibilities, or caring for your hygiene.
  • The symptoms of depressive disorder can be so tricky that you turn to drugs and alcohol to control them, but drugs and alcohol addiction can worsen the signs of depression in a vicious catch-22.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You can find dual diagnosis depression treatment in Studio City, where professionals can help you untangle your addiction and your depression and figure out how each one affects the other and how to control them.
