The Willows at Red Oak Recovery®: Depression Treatment Center for Women

Depression Treatment CenterDepression and addiction frequently occur simultaneously. In fact, one out of three depressed people also suffer from some form of substance abuse or dependence.

Depressive illnesses occur most frequently in women ages 25 to 44 and, according to a study published in PLoS One, traumatic life events were found to be the biggest single cause of depression. Of course, depression can also result from a genetic predisposition for the disorder, hormonal imbalances, stress, or the use of mood-altering chemicals.

Understanding the Symptoms of Depression

Depression symptoms vary from person to person and involve more than just a blue mood. Depression is a brain disorder and it can impact a person’s day-to-day functioning, making it difficult to hold a job, complete school, or maintain a healthy relationship.
