Home/ Major Depressive Disorders Treatment

Depression is a complex mental health condition that often requires a multi-faceted approach to treatment. Integrating medication management, GeneSight testing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) provides a comprehensive and personalized strategy for managing and alleviating depressive symptoms. Here is how each component can contribute to the overall treatment plan:

Proper medication management involves the use of antidepressants or mood stabilizers to reduce the symptoms of depression. Our psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner can prescribe medications based on the individual’s specific symptoms, medical history, and potential side effects. However, it is crucial to regularly monitor the client’s response to the medication, adjust the dosage if necessary, and manage any potential side effects.

Major Depressive Disorder Treatment Approaches

GeneSight Testing:

To increase the medication’s success rate, we use GeneSight testing. GeneSight testing is a type of genetic testing that can help identify how an individual’s genetic makeup may affect their response to certain psychiatric medications.

By analyzing a client’s genetic profile, the test provides insights into which medications are more likely to be effective and which ones may have adverse reactions or reduced efficacy.

This data helps our psychiatrist select the most suitable medication, leading to a more personalized and effective treatment plan.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT):

ACT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on mindfulness and acceptance strategies to help individuals effectively manage negative thoughts and emotions.

It encourages clients to accept their feelings and be present in the current moment while also committing to actions that align with their values.

By developing psychological flexibility and resilience, individuals can learn to manage their depressive symptoms more effectively and improve their overall quality of life.

When combined, these approaches can provide a holistic treatment plan that addresses both the biological and psychological aspects of depression. Clients receive a tailored treatment plan specific to their needs with daily monitoring which assesses their progress to ensure the most effective and appropriate care.
