Depression and anxiety are serious mood disorders that disrupt a person’s daily life. They can greatly impact how we feel, behave, and function in our day-to-day activities.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, major depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States. In 2015, an estimated 16.1 million adults aged 18 or older had at least one major depressive episode in the past year in the U.S.—which is about 6.7% of all U.S. adults.
As for anxiety, the National Institute of Mental Health reports that 28.8% of the U.S. adult population has a lifetime prevalence of anxiety disorder. In addition, women are 60% more likely than men to experience an anxiety disorder over their lifetime.
At the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers, we offer individualized treatment programs for mental health disorders, including treatment for both depression and anxiety. In addition, we know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. We know and understand the biological and psychological science that support treatments in trauma, emotional disorders, and other mental health concerns.
Below is information relating to depression and anxiety and our treatment programs.
Major depression is a mental health disorder classified as having prolonged sad moods which lead to disinterest in daily activities as well as physical symptoms. 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression.
Symptoms for depression include:
The above symptoms can also vary depending on age, gender, culture and other environmental factors. Some people may experience more symptoms than others. Lastly, the severity and frequency of the symptoms will vary depending on the person and their illness.
Though most of us will experience anxiety as a normal reaction to a stressful situation, anxiety disorder is when the feeling of worrying and fear is persistent and interfering with day-to-day activities. People with anxiety disorders also have a difficult time controlling their anxious emotions and the psychological and physical symptoms can worsen over time and never fully go away after the passing of a stressful situation.
Symptoms for anxiety disorder include:
If the above symptoms disrupt or inhibit your ability to function or complete day-to-day tasks, you could be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are divided into three main categories: anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, and trauma and stressor-related disorders. Visit your doctor to talk about symptoms you or a loved one is having and they’ll complete a thorough mental health evaluation.
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to depression and anxiety, but both conditions are treatable through the right programs. Typical programs for depression and anxiety include: combination of medications, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychotherapies and support groups. The goal of rehab is to help a patient learn disease management skills and more importantly learn and pursue to live a meaningful life.

The Phoenix Difference constitutes a carefully tailored program and recovery experience defined by research.

Furthermore, the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers are driven by the guiding mission statement: “Empowering individuals and families suffering from addiction and mental health disorders, to celebrate life through lasting solutions.” We accomplish the therapeutic and healing experience through a continuum of care that begins with Residential Treatment and traverses across a Day Program, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), to General Outpatient (GOP). Lastly, the continuum of care culminates in a weekly Alumni Support Meeting, which provides a recovery support community to sustain the recovery capital of The Phoenix Alumni.
