Have You Suffered from Depression for Too Long?
If you suffer from treatment-resistant depression you are not alone. Many people suffering from a mental health condition like depression have sought relief in outpatient settings and haven’t found an effective solution. Incorrect diagnoses and inadequate care can be common problems. Not responding to treatment or only getting partially better are not enough – why accept ‘better’ when thriving can be possible?
We Determine the Right Diagnosis So You Can Find Relief
At The Retreat, we specialize in determining a person’s correct diagnosis through an intensive diagnostic assessment, and then developing a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan that works. Our team of highly trained psychiatrists has deep expertise in psychopharmacology and cutting-edge neurostimulation techniques, meaning our residents have access to well-rounded, world-class treatment options – all under one roof.
Psychotropic medications are used with the highest degree of clinical expertise.
We offer electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on-site.
Our clinicians are highly skilled in effective interventions, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), transference-focused psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and mentalization.
All residents spend three hours per week in individual sessions with their treating doctor.
Sheppard Pratt is home to some of the most specialized units in the nation; our doctors are experts in their fields.
Residents at The Retreat participate in 38 hours of group programming each week
Why seek care at The Retreat when other treatment hasn’t worked?
Up to half of our residents have been misdiagnosed before they arrive at The Retreat. We take an in-depth, thoughtful approach to diagnosis while simultaneously beginning treatment, meaning a faster road to recovery.
And, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach. At The Retreat, you’ll experience individual therapy, medication management, group therapy, experiential therapy, and more – all with the goal of finding the right care options and building a personalized treatment plan that’s effective for you.
