many young adults that struggle with depression turn to "self-medicating." This can mean a variety of different things. Unfortunately most young adults struggling with depression choose to self medicate with harmful substances such as alcohol and drugs. By abusing substances, it provides temporary relief for the young adult, giving them a false sense of security. Of course, it is just a temporary fix and is quickly replaced with regret, escalating them into a further state of depression.
A depressed young adult often times become depressed sometime after high school. This confusing and trifling time in a young adult's life can be a more difficult time than they originally expected. This is the first time in a young adults life that they are completely responsible for their life and choices. This time can be too much for some young men and women to handle leaving them in a state of despair which then leads to depression.
When living with depression, young adults may build or develop a sort of rut. While living in this rut, young men and women may grow comfortable and even dependent on this negative lifestyle. Productive and social behavior becomes a thing of the past and they may even be content with living with depression.
If this type of behavior is being displayed by your young adult son or daughter, it is time for you to get help. Please consider us here at At the Crossroads. We are a transitional therapeutic intervention program with one goal in mind, providing young adults with a second chance at living up to their full potential and living a successful, fruitful life.
