What is Depression?

Depression is having a feeling of loneliness, being drained, a continuous and constant sadness that makes you feel like having no energy at all. Losing interest in what used to be your hobby, the feeling that is not easily taken care of, may result in mental illness. There are so many types of depression, there are types that are mild and can easily be taken care of with the right approach, and some are too much to be handled alone. Depression is the culmination of things that are constantly affecting your way of looking at things, feeling like all the things that you do may result in something not good.

Frequently Asked Questions

Therapy creates a safe and supportive space where you can identify substance use triggers, explore the reasons for use, and develop healthy coping strategies. You’ll work side-by-side with your therapist to decide what your realistic goals are and to consistently work towards meeting them. With the guidance and insight of your therapist, you’ll gain a deeper understanding and awareness of the specific patterns that are connected to your substance use and can gradually work towards reducing or eliminating substance dependence.

Absolutely not. Elysian’s clinical psychologists regularly work with those who struggle with substance dependencies and are deeply compassionate towards the inner battle our clients experience. In fact, we want to help you heal the shame and stigma around substance use as a part of your healing journey towards recovery.

Therapy is always very personal. The aim for your substance abuse healing and recovery is tailored to you and your specific needs and hopes. For some clients, complete abstinence may be the most desired or realistic goal while for others, aiming for a reduction will be perfectly appropriate. You’ll work with your therapist to discover what your personal goal is surrounding substance use and how you can achieve it with our support.

The length of time an individual continues therapy for substance abuse is entirely dependent on multiple factors including their particular needs and the presence of other mental health conditions. While some clients will begin to notice a reduction in dependency and lasting transformation in a matter of months, others will benefit from more long-term, ongoing support before meeting their personal goals.
