Depression: Top 10 Treatment Centers

Wednesday, 02 Mar 2011 03:59 PM

Good depression treatment centers generally include a holistic therapy set-up that provides a diet and exercise plan, counseling sessions, talk therapy sessions, recommended medications, motivation tapes, and other materials.

Visiting a depression treatment center is a completely voluntary process that requires deep commitment from both the patient as well as the treatment center.
Each depression treatment center generally has a unique plan of action. While some treatment centers for depression are privately-run, others are managed by non-profit/charitable organizations. There are also those that are run by Christian missionaries and others that are managed by Universities. In addition to the above, there are day treatment centers as well as residential treatment centers for depression to suit the needs of individuals.
