Treatment Discover Your Inner Strength in Paradise
At Maui Recovery, we understand the profound impact that depression and anxiety can have on your health and well-being. These prevalent mental health conditions, which significantly impact a large segment of the U.S. population, often go hand in hand with substance abuse disorder. Those with a lifetime of major depression have a 16.5% alcohol use disorder, and 18% have a substance abuse disorder.
These sobering statistics underscore the considerable impact of depression and anxiety across various demographics in the United States, highlighting the need for accessible and comprehensive mental health care and support services.
Rather than merely treating the symptoms, our holistic approach dives deep into the root causes of these conditions. We heal the mind, body and soul by offering a unique blend of traditional therapeutic methods combined with experiential therapies.
Deeply influenced by the rich cultural heritage of Hawaii, our dedicated clinicians expertly use this integrative approach to bring our clients resilience, balance, and a renewed sense of purpose in their path to recovery.

What is Depression?

Depression is a complex medical condition that profoundly affects your emotions, thoughts, and actions. Characterized by a persistent sense of sadness and a marked loss of interest in activities that once brought joy and fulfillment, depression impacts a significant portion of the population. 

As of 2021, approximately 21 million U.S. adults, or 8.3% of the adult population, have experienced at least one major depressive episode, with a higher prevalence among adult females (10.3%) compared to males (6.2%). 

This condition often extends beyond emotional turmoil, leading to various physical challenges, making routine tasks and daily responsibilities into overwhelming hurdles. Alarmingly, young adults aged 18-25 are the most affected group, with 18.6% experiencing major depressive episodes.

Symptoms of Depression

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
  • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Loss of energy or increased fatigue
  • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt
  • Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions
  • Slowed speech and movement
  • Restlessness or having trouble sitting still
  • Frequent thoughts of death, suicidal ideation, or suicide attempts
  • Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches

It’s important to recognize that with the right treatment and support, depression can be effectively managed, offering a path to recovery and a renewed sense of purpose and enjoyment in life.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety disorders are a range of conditions marked by excessive and persistent worry, fear, and nervousness. These disorders, which can significantly disrupt daily life, are prevalent among American adults, affecting 27.3% of those over 18 years old. Women are disproportionately impacted, with 30.8% experiencing anxiety, compared to 23.5% of men. 

Notably, anxiety disorders are particularly widespread among LGBTQ+ individuals, who face these challenges at a rate of 56.7%, markedly higher than the 24.8% prevalence among straight individuals. These numbers underscore the importance of recognizing anxiety as a serious and common condition.

Types of Anxiety Disorders

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Excessive anxiety and worry about various topics, events, or activities, lasting more than six months.
  • Panic Disorder: Recurrent unexpected panic attacks, sudden periods of intense fear, and physical symptoms like heart palpitations and dizziness.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia): Intense fear of social or performance situations where individuals feel they may be judged, embarrassed, or rejected.
  • Specific Phobias: Excessive and irrational fear of specific objects or situations, such as heights, animals, or flying.
  • Agoraphobia: Fear of being in situations where escape might be difficult, or help might not be available in the event of panic symptoms.
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder: Excessive fear or anxiety concerning separation from home or attachment figures.
  • Selective Mutism: Consistent failure to speak in certain social situations despite speaking in other situations.
  • Substance/Medication-Induced Anxiety Disorder: Anxiety symptoms directly attributable to substance abuse, medication, or exposure to a toxin.
  • Anxiety Disorder Due to Another Medical Condition: Anxiety symptoms that are a direct physiological consequence of a medical condition.
  • Other Specified Anxiety Disorder and Unspecified Anxiety Disorder: Disorders that include symptoms characteristic of an anxiety disorder that cause significant distress but do not meet the full criteria for any of the disorders above.

Although anxiety can be debilitating, effective treatments and supportive care can help manage symptoms, allowing individuals to regain a sense of control and peace in their lives.
