Depression Treatment Programs

Depression is a highly prevalent and often debilitating mood disorder. It causes persistent sadness and a loss of interest in otherwise enjoyable activities. Recovering from depression can feel impossible (depression also can cause a lack of motivation), but with our professional inpatient depression treatment in San Diego, it’s completely doable.

Depression Causes and Symptoms

Depression can be dangerous. If you are depressed, it might feel like life is not worth living. Depression can lead to a wide range of physical and mental problems, and it’s often exacerbated by well-meaning people encouraging you to “snap out of it.” However, just like you couldn’t “snap out of” a broken leg, depression is a real illness. Therefore, needing a depression treatment program is nothing to be ashamed of.

Doctors don’t know exactly what causes depression, although there seem to be many factors involved. These include brain chemistry, hormones and genetics. Having depression, and seeking treatment for depression, is absolutely not your fault. It does not matter how “good” your life seems from the outside; people from all walks of life seek inpatient depression treatment.

Some risk factors make it more likely that you or someone you love will develop depression. These include having blood relatives with a history of depression, experiencing traumatic events, low self-esteem, being LGBTQ and unsupported, substance abuse, and chronic illnesses. Not everyone with one or even multiple of these risk factors will develop depression, but it does make it more likely.

The symptoms of depression are numerous and typically occur all day every day. They include feelings of tearfulness and hopelessness, angry outbursts, slowed thinking, agitation, weight loss or gain, suicidal thoughts, and unexplained physical aches and pains. These symptoms will usually be severe enough to cause notable problems in daily life.

Depression Treatment Programs

If you’re ready to seek treatment for your depression, you’ve come to the right place. Just landing on this website is a great first step on your road to depression recovery.

Most depression treatment program centers will use a combination of medication and psychotherapy to help overcome depression. Inpatient depression treatment centers are staffed by a team of professionals that usually includes nurses, therapists, and more, as well as the support staff that keeps the depression treatment facilities running smoothly.

Many people think of residential treatment as something that is only available for substance abuse and severe mental illnesses. However, residential treatment centers for depression are common and can provide a great supportive environment as you work on moving past major depression. These programs for depression give patients a safe space to figure out exactly which medication works best for them (it’s different for everyone), and develop coping strategies without the stressors of the outside world distracting them. One month in an inpatient depression treatment facility can allow a person to make the same amount of progress that they would in a year of outpatient treatment.

As mentioned, depression recovery centers usually focus heavily on psychotherapy, which is a general term for talking about your condition with a mental health professional. It’s also known as talk therapy. While you are in rehab with depression, your psychotherapist will help you with myriad things. This could include replacing negative beliefs and behaviors with positive ones, developing coping skills, adapting to crisis, setting realistic goals, and regaining a sense of satisfaction with your life. After going through depression inpatient treatment, you’ll be able to return to your “normal” life with a new capability to face down difficulties and stay positive.

Depression often coexists with anxiety, which is why there are treatment centers for depression and anxiety combined. Here at Solara Mental Health, we believe in and provide rehab for depression and anxiety. Residential treatment for depression and anxiety is a great option for anyone who finds that their depression or anxiety is overwhelming and who wants the focused help of an inpatient treatment program.

What Our Clients Say


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.


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.


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.

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.

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 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.


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.


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.


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.

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.

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.
