Treatment For Major Depression

Treatment for depression can be complex. At Solara Mental Health, we fully understand how debilitating depression is, too. For over a decade, we have observed this condition in hundreds of clients, who have come to us for help.

Our clinical team’s extensive experience and broad expertise enables us to provide the most effective available treatment for depression. We utilize the most current research and healing practices for the most successful outcomes.

We also recognize that depression is not experienced in the same way by everyone – there is a broad spectrum of depressive symptoms, which is why we create highly personalized treatment plans and procedures to address each individual’s specific needs.

Utilizing multiple treatment modalities including individual therapy, small group therapy, holistic therapies, and medication management when appropriate, we are able treat each individual’s unique depressive condition.

Through our program, our clients realize significant improvement in symptom reduction and global well-being almost immediately upon participation in our program.

Depression Defined

While depression is among the more common mental health disorders, it is also among the more deadly, due to the hopeless and despair it causes. It interferes with relationships, productivity, sleep, activity, and most every other aspect of the lives of those who suffer from it.

Depression is caused by multiple contributors including genetic, biochemical, environmental, and others, which cause emotional, cognitive, and physical instability.

Depression Symptoms include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, and hopelessness
  • Reduction or complete loss of interest in relationships, interests, activities, and so on, which were formally enjoyable
  • Significant increase and/or decrease in sleep
  • Fatigue, listlessness, and general loss of energ
  • Irritability or anger
  • Memory problems and general slowness in cognitive function
  • Unwarranted feelings of guilt and worthlessness
  • Changes in appetite, including both overeating and/or under eating
  • Suicidal thoughts

Perhaps the primary paradox of depression is that it creates a total lack of desire to participate in usual, healthy life interactions and activities, which are the very experiences critical to normal happy living. This downward cycle of isolation and suffering increasingly aggravates the symptoms of depression.

Healing from Depression

The saving news is that there is hope and healing. Through proper professional treatment for depression in the most healing-conducive environment, individuals can learn to manage their symptoms, regain emotional and mental stability, and again experience all that life is in a healthy way.

Solara Mental Health provides this depression treatment and setting. Our residences at Pacific Beach provide the ideal experience for treatment for depression in all its forms.

In our beautiful appointed, private residences and adjacent clinical offices, one can identify and understand the difficult emotions caused by depression in an entirely safe, supportive setting monitored by highly trained, experienced, and caring professionals, who understand debilitating depression.

Solara Mental Health is committed and dedicated to freeing our clients from the clutches of depression and each of our programs is created to ensure this.

What Our Clients Are Saying


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.
