Signs and Symptoms of Depression

Depression takes different forms and may present differently from person to person. With that in mind, common signs and symptoms of depression include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • A persistent down, low, depressed, empty, or “numb” mood
  • Feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in activities you’d typically enjoy
  • Fatigue, low energy, or feeling slowed down
  • Trouble concentrating or focusing 
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Thoughts of suicide or death 
  • Slowed body movements
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Body aches or pain
  • GI distress
  • Headaches 
  • Irritability 
  • Anxiety 
  • Anger 

Depression can affect daily life activities in some instances. Other men may have high-functioning or hidden depression with primarily internal symptoms. Either way, getting help for depression is crucial.

Effects of Depression

How Depression Affects Physical Health and Substance Abuse

Depression is linked to higher rates of substance abuse and a range of physical health concerns. Here are some essential facts you should know about the impact of depression on physical well-being and addiction if you or a man in your life is or might be facing a depressive disorder:

  • Compared to individuals without any mood disorder (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder), people with depression are about twice as likely to experience a substance use disorder. 
  • Depression and substance abuse are both correlated with increased rates of various serious physical health problems, including but not limited to higher rates of cardiovascular disease and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Substance abuse and depression are both correlated with increased rates of sleep disorders, such as insomnia. 
  • Depression and substance abuse can make it more challenging to properly care for or manage existing physical health conditions (e.g., blood sugar in diabetes management). 
  • Substance use disorders and depression are treatable. Research shows that treatment can alleviate physical symptoms associated with both. 

It is suspected that many people with both a substance use disorder and depressive disorder use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate. When you get substance abuse and depression treatment for men in Colorado at Healing Pines, we address both so that men like you or your loved one can achieve the best possible treatment outcomes.

Our men’s Colorado drug rehab can help you or a loved one overcome depression and co-occurring substance abuse.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

Susan M

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!

As an undergraduate Mike participated in the McNair Scholars program where he partnered with a highly published scientist to create an original project seeking to understand the intersection of trauma types and interpersonal behaviors. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Minor in Latino Studies, Mike went on to study at Cal State San Bernardino for a Master of Science in Clinical Counseling Psychology. Under the supervision of Dr. Christina Hassija, Mike learned the intricacies of trauma-focused therapy including Prolonged Exposure for PTSD and went on to co-author an encyclopedia chapter on trauma-focused treatments with his said mentor. After graduation, Mike worked in the addictions field applying trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) within various treatment settings including government mental health clinics, residential units, and outpatient non-profits.

Despite the scholarly and clinical resume, Mike truly appreciates the process of change and seeks to find joy in the work of therapy. He believes that therapists are present to serve the milieu and that a custom approach to recovery is paramount. He takes personal stories of trauma, grief, and general loss seriously while finding humility in being a part of another’s recovery journey.
