Teen Depression: Guiding the Path to Healing

BNI Treatment Centers: Specialized Los Angeles Depression Treatment

According to the World Health Organization, about 13% of 10-19-year-olds struggle with a mental disorder. Depression, sometimes known as major depressive disorder, is one of the most common mental illnesses among adolescents, and yet many teens suffer in silence from their depression. Depression treatment for teens is crucial as the condition can significantly deteriorate health, happiness, and overall quality of life. For teens, this can mean losing interest in hobbies they once enjoyed, declining school performance, fracturing relationships with loved ones, and so much more. If your teen is struggling with depression, it’s essential they seek professional treatment to safely and effectively manage their depression symptoms.

TEEN DEPRESSION & WELLNESS

Common Signs and Symptoms of Teen Depression

Getting a proper diagnosis is the first essential step toward getting your teen the help that they need to better manage their depression symptoms. However, it can sometimes be difficult to tell if your teen is just feeling down or struggling with depression. While we all have bad days every now and then, if your teen has been persistently showing signs of depression, it’s critical they seek professional depression treatment for teens to better manage their symptoms and regain control of their life.

Unsure if your teen is struggling with depression? Below are several symptoms to look out for:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed
  • Low self-esteem
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Having difficulties concentrating or making decisions
  • Having thoughts about suicide 
  • Lack of energy
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Using drugs or alcohol to self-medicate
  • Declining school performance or attendance

If your teen is showing any of the above signs of depression, it’s essential they seek professional help. Our teen depression treatment center in Southern California offers a broad range of treatment programs and services to best help each teen lead a healthier, happier, more balanced quality of life. 

There is no single cause for depression. Several psychological, physiological, and environmental causes are at play that can cause a teen to struggle with depression. This can include a range of causes like:

  • Abnormal brain chemistry
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Genetics/inherited traits
  • Early childhood trauma

Many risk factors can cause a teen to develop depression, including:

  • Struggling with something that lowers their self-esteem (i.e., obesity)
  • Being a victim of physical or sexual abuse
  • Struggling with a chronic illness or ongoing pain
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol
  • Having low self-esteem
  • Being overly self-critical
Your Teen's Future is Bright

What to Expect from Our Depression Treatment Program in Los Angeles

It can be scary asking for help. However, if you or your teen is struggling with depression, it’s critical you seek professional help to better manage your depression symptoms and get back to leading a happier, healthier life. We offer several levels of care to meet patients wherever they may be on their recovery journey. 

These treatment programs include our:

Teen Drug Detox

Unfortunately, many teens struggling with depression may turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with their mental disorders. If you are struggling with both depression and addiction, we offer a drug detox program to help you safely and effectively recover from addiction.

Teen Residential Rehab

Our residential treatment program is an intensive program that offers 24/7 support so your teen can heal and better manage their depression symptoms.

Teen PHP

Our PHP (partial hospitalization program) provides high-level outpatient care to teens struggling with mental illness (like depression) or a dual diagnosis. Consider this a step down from residential/inpatient treatment. 

Teen IOP

Our IOP (intensive outpatient program) is a great treatment option for teens struggling with mild to moderate mental disorders. This treatment allows your teen to still prioritize their recovery while still having the flexibility to attend school and continue residing at home.

    Comprehensive Depression Treatment for Adolescents and Teenagers

    Not all recovery journeys are the same. In other words, not all teens struggling with depression may benefit from the same treatment plan. That’s why our teen depression treatment center in Southern California offers a wide range of comprehensive treatment services so adolescents can receive the best possible care to help them take back their life for the better.

    Our teen depression treatment center offers a range of therapies, including:

    • CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy)
    • DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy)
    • Group therapy
    • Family therapy
    • Alternative therapies (i.e., yoga, music therapy, etc.)
    • Medications
    • Dual Diagnosis treatment
    • On-site academic support

    Our therapist team offers a wide range of both modern and traditional therapy options to ensure your teen is receiving the best possible treatment for their recovery needs. This may include oftentimes combining both traditional and alternative therapies to help your teen effectively manage their depression symptoms.

    Unfortunately, many teens who struggle with untreated depression may turn to drugs or alcohol as a means to self-medicate their depression symptoms, which can inevitably lead to addiction. Our dual diagnosis treatment also provides comprehensive mental illness and addiction treatment for teens who may be struggling with both a mental and substance use disorder simultaneously. 

    We also offer on-site academic support because we know it can be challenging for a teen to prioritize their recovery needs while progressing in their academics. For example, if your teen attends our residential treatment program, not only will they receive teen depression therapy, but they’ll receive help with schoolwork so they don’t fall behind in their academics. 

    We work with most major insurance
    Most major health insurance plans will help cover up to 100% of the cost of treatment at our program. Find out your teen's coverage & treatment options right now.
