An estimated 19 million adults are living with major depression or another mood disorder. The good news is that it can be treated effectively utilizing evidence-based treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). At Rogers, you get a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs. In addition to CBT, our programs also include the following:
Individual sessions with your psychiatrist and a behavioral specialist will be scheduled regularly during your treatment. This is your time to review any specific issues regarding your emotional, psychological or other needs to address and determine any next steps.
Designed to provide a positive and safe experience, group therapy is an integral part of our programming, especially for depression and mood disorders. By interacting with others, sharing concerns, feelings and experiences, you will discover that you and other members of the group may share many of the same problems or concerns.
You will participate in groups related to specific topics that will address your symptoms, giving you an opportunity to practice skills that promote personal growth. Though challenging, you will find in group therapy everyone is an important part of the process.
Involving family and friends as part of your support network is a critical component of treatment and long-term recovery. With your consent, your treatment team will contact your family or other people you feel are integral to your support and ask them to be involved. We find that this involvement helps your support network to better understand your symptoms and how they can support you during treatment and recovery.
Focusing on a variety of group and individual topics, experiential therapy helps you see personal growth and self-recognition through action-oriented experiences like art therapy, recreational therapy or movement therapy. These activities help you to learn how to trust, adapt, lead and make decisions in an environment of support and respect.
All of the activities are specifically designed to help you gain new perspective on treatment through skills you can continue after your stay. We consider this “hands on” approach to therapy learning by doing.
Rogers believes in providing each of our patient’s recommendations for treatment following discharge. This may include a step up or step down to another level of care such as a partial hospitalization program, an intensive outpatient program or outpatient therapist.
