Top-Rated Depression Treatment Centers in Georgia

Southeast Detox
Over two times the population of Atlanta. This refers to the 1.4 million Georgia adults with mental health conditions. 4.3% of adults in Georgia reported signs of depression (or anxiety) in 2021. Of that, 29% couldn't access behavioral health services like therapy or depression treatment centers in Georgia.

Georgia recently ranked 49th for lack of access to mental health care. 336,000 adults are living with serious mental illness in the state. It’s a good thing our treatment center is unlike any other.

Nestled within reach of Atlanta, Southeast Detox’s depression treatment centers in Georgia aren’t sitting on the sidelines.

Top-Rated Depression Treatment

Types of Depression We Treat

Depression is an invisible epidemic. The need for access to mental health care is at a fever pitch.

This applies to Georgia — and the entire country. 7.7 million Americans are dealing with mental health disorders and substance use issues.

Treating addiction and mental health issues together makes sense. We call this approach co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis.

Southeast Detox is where you can go and finally take the pause you need. Our depression program is adept at treating all the different types.

Let’s break those down:

  • Major depressive disorder (MDD) is the most common form. It affects 264 million people. Symptoms include no longer enjoying things, trouble concentrating, and feeling worthless. Talk therapy and antidepressants treat MDD.

  • Persistent depressive disorder (PDD) is a type of long-lasting depression. The symptoms of PDD linger for at least two years and are less severe than MDD. Talk therapy like CBT and finding the proper medication ease PDD.

  • Postpartum depression (PPD) affects up to 1 in 7 women after giving birth. PPD disrupts the joy of motherhood and bonding with the baby. Symptoms include feeling detached, hollow, and alone. Therapy, new mother support groups, and medication treat PPD.

  • Post-acute withdrawal depression (PAWS) occurs after quitting drugs or alcohol. Symptoms include feeling lost, unhappy, and tired, lasting for weeks or months. Medication, therapy, and fellowship in support groups combat PAWS.

  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) strikes during fall and winter. The lack of sunlight drains people affected until the season changes. Light therapy and short-term antidepressants help the months pass easier.

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

Oxycodone is available in several dose forms, including immediate-release tablets, extended-release tablets, and an oral solution. The usual dose range for immediate-release oxycodone is 5 to 30 mg every 4 to 6 hours as needed for pain, while the usual dose range for extended-release oxycodone is 10 to 160 mg once daily. The oral solution typically comes in a 5 mg/5 mL concentration.

Our Depression Treatment Programs

We are close enough to Atlanta but far enough away to recharge.

Our all-inclusive rehab is part of an independently-owned network in the southeast. We’re an answer to the lack of treatment options for seeking help. We offer treatment programs at each level of care.

52.2% of Americans said they could not afford the cost of mental health care with drug rehab. We work hard to ensure anyone who needs addiction help can get the help they need.

We accept most major insurance providers. We’ll help you navigate your coverage to cut out-of-pocket expenses. If you don’t have insurance, we’ll explore available options.

When you come to Southeast Detox, you will have a treatment team for addiction, medical, and therapy. We’re licensed by the state of Georgia and Joint Commission-accredited, which means we go above and beyond in safety and quality.

7.7 million adults in the U.S. with mental illness are also dealing with a substance use disorder. We offer onsite medical detox and residential treatment at our dual treatment center. Our all-inclusive treatment options allow your treatment team to get to know you.

If your treatment includes drug dependency, medical detox is the first stop. Our clinicians know the correct procedures to cleanse drugs from your body. Your well-being comes first. This first step is challenging and even dangerous if not monitored. You’ll have the help of substance abuse and healthcare professionals looking out for you 24/7. This ensures a safe start to the recovery journey.

Residential, also called inpatient, is our highest level of care. After detox, this is the next step. You’ll feel more rejuvenated and ready to start working on what brought you here. Healing is more accessible in a stable and supportive environment. Inpatient entails living at our renovated facility and receiving around-the-clock attention.

We take the guesswork out of these early stages by providing a welcoming atmosphere for clients to focus on improving.

Our Approach to Depression Treatment

Our immersive mental health programs are life-changing. We don’t stick a bandaid on you and call it a day. Or tell you to “cheer up.” We recognize you as an individual and align your recovery with this.

Therapy is a big part of an effective treatment plan. Why? It works. We follow an evidence-based model to achieve lasting change. This means our depression program is results-driven and backed by science. Our approach includes a mixture of therapies, medications, and holistic activities.

You’ll identify triggers and develop coping strategies to manage cravings and avoid relapse. You will also engage in a range of individual therapy and group therapy sessions during your stay.

Therapy can include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)

You’ll be a part of something bigger in group therapy sessions. If your loved ones are a part of your recovery, we also offer family therapy.

You’ll explore therapies such as yoga to help you manage symptoms in natural ways.

Substance abuse and behavioral health are different for everyone. We don’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach. You will work with your treatment team to develop a plan. Custom treatment plans ensure we make the most of your time with us.

Psychiatric Medications

Medication has come a long way since the FDA approved Prozac in 1987. Earlier antidepressants had a ton of side effects — if they even worked.

There are several options for medication interventions to treat the symptoms of depression. Your doctor might use antidepressants to assist your treatment if it’s a good fit. Medication can be used short-term or continued as part of outpatient.

A few of these types include the following:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) help improve mood, sleep, and appetite. They work by slowing down how the brain takes back chemicals.
  • Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Celexa (citalopram), and Lexapro (escitalopram)
  • Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) can improve your mood and energy. They work by stopping the brain from removing necessary chemicals so there’s more to use.
  • Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (duloxetine), and Pristiq (desvenlafaxine)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) increase the levels of two chemicals in the brain. These can cause more side effects than other types of antidepressants.
  • Elavil (amitriptyline) and Tofranil (imipramine)
  • Atypical antidepressants work by changing the way chemicals in the brain behave. These medicines help people feel better by affecting different parts of the brain.
  • Wellbutrin (bupropion), Remeron (mirtazapine), and Desyrel (trazodone)

Individual Therapy

Therapy is one of our mainstays. Below is more information about what your therapist might use:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps reduce negative thought patterns to boost mood.

  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) helps individuals learn skills to manage intense emotions.

  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) helps to reduce upsetting memories.

  • Motivational interviewing (MI) helps to uncover motivation to make positive changes with actions.

Holistic Therapy

This popular stress-relieving exercise is an effective tool for addiction recovery. Relax, take a breath, and let wellness improve your being in the following ways.

  • Reduces stress and anxiety

  • Improves mood

  • Boosts self-awareness

  • Enhances physical fitness

  • Provides social support

Symptoms of Depression We Treat

Depression often happens more than once in a person’s life. The exact causes are not yet known.

When it does, the symptoms last most of the day, every day, and can appear as:

Your Recovery Starts Here

Our admissions team is ready 24/7 to guide you through the process, from admission to coordinating travel, treatment programs, and more.

Why Choose Southeast Detox?

We’re your opportunity to give your body and mind the chance to recover and rejuvenate. Taking care of yourself shows strength and self-awareness.

Recovery is like a car that needs regular maintenance and fuel to keep running. If you neglect it, it will break down, and you’ll have to start all over.

Our outpatient treatment involves preventing relapse through aftercare.

Aftercare is essential in addiction and depression recovery.

We recommend an intensive outpatient program (IOP) once you leave. This outpatient service eases you into real life while continuing recovery. This outpatient treatment plan provides lasting support, prevents relapse, and medication management, offers customized treatment, promotes accountability, and builds community.

You’ll have a relapse prevention plan when you leave our treatment center.

  • Tricare

  • Anthem BCBS

  • Alliant Health Plans
