Treatment Resistant Depression Program

What is Treatment Resistant Depression?

If you've been treated for depression but your symptoms haven't improved, you may suffer from treatment-resistant depression "TRD". Unfortunately, some depression treatments don't always work. Taking an antidepressant or speaking with licensed counselor eases depression for some, but for others you need a more comprehensive approach to treating depression.

If your depression treatment isn't working, don't give up. We created this specialized program to help get your treatment-resistant depression under control.

Treatment Planning Smart Health & Wellness Centers

Our TRD Program

Most patients will need a comprehensive treatment plan to achieve remission (the resolution of all or most symptoms) of their depressive episode. It is important to address all the causes that can contribute to depression including:

  • Brain and biological factors
  • Stress-related contributors
  • Co-existing medical illness
  • Problem-solving and relationship skills
  • Social Support
  • Lifestyle Changes (including diet and exercise)

At our centers, your providers will rely on current medical evidence when establishing a treatment plan for you. Depending on your medical history, current symptoms, and testing results, you and your provider will discuss all the options available that will best support your recovery. To the left is a general guide to the care plan.

What Services Are In Our Program?

TMS therapy is a form of neuromodulation therapy used at our centers. The brain is organized into groups of neurons that work together to complete specific tasks or control specific functions. These are called networks. When the connectivity within a network is disrupted, the network cannot effectively complete its assigned task. TMS therapy can be used to strengthen these network connections to improve symptoms associated with depression and anxiety.

A computerized neurocognitive testing platform that assesses how well your brain is managing tasks, such as working memory close space, verbal memory close space, concentration, processing speed, and executive functioning. These results give your provider objective measurements and can identify levels of impairment, or may track improvement in function. This test can also be helpful in monitoring your progress during treatment.

The Brainview is the most comprehensive and advanced assessment we offer today. It combines information on your brain functioning, cognitive functioning abilities, metabolic information, and information regarding electrical signals of your heart.

The report generated will show your brainwaves at rest and when your brain is performing a task. We compare this to a large database based on your age. This test will help your provider develop a more informed treatment plan for you.

CBT GROUP CLASSES

Our Centers offer a unique 12-week psychoeducation course taught by a licensed clinical social worker. Each course can help you manage symptoms and teach you skills that can have an immediate effect on you think and feel, in addition to significantly decreasing your symptoms. We offer both Depression and Anxiety specific classes.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Our therapy services program helps connect patients with the right therapy options. We offer a variety of support groups and psychoeducational classes. If your provider recommends therapy, you will be individually assessed by one of our licensed clinicians to determine and recommend the best options that fit you and the treatment plan your provider is recommending.

MEDICATION MANAGEMENT

Management of your psychiatric medications plays an important role in your comprehensive treatment. Our team recognizes the health impact that these medications may have and will provide, a review of previous medication treatments and effectiveness, measurement based care at each appointment to assess effectiveness, use a thoughtful evidence-guide selection of medication and will provide genetic testing if needed.
