How Residential Treatment Centers Can Help with Depression.

Depression and the need for treatment is a growing problem for teens. When your teen is high functioning, successful, or even into activities such as theater, band or athletics it may not be so easy to see. Many choose residential treatment centers for help.

This year, college football star Isaiah Renfro, who played for the University of Washington Huskies, quit the team in order to take control of his depression.  Renfro struggled with depression for years but was able to keep it relatively hidden from the eyes of others due to his athletic prowess. 

When asked about why he had quit the team, Renfro stated that he was receiving treatment “in a special program for people like me, that taught me how to cope with my problems and what to do when I hit my lowest of lows.” Isaiah is doing much better now because of the help that he has received from being in one of the top Residential Treatment Centers.

After receiving treatment, Isaiah stated that, “This isn’t the end of me, just the end of a certain chapter. I will conquer this, and not let this situation conquer me. I’m on a journey to find my happiness again.”

Isaiah, like many other teens. was able to benefit from getting help from a residential treatment center for depression.
