How We Treat Depression
Treatment depends on the type of depression you have and your personal history of health problems, violence, or abuse. The first step is to get a proper medical diagnosis. Through the Alpha Mental Health Service, treatment may include a combination of self care, talk therapy, and medication.
Treatment can include weekly sessions and unlimited texting with your therapist - first month free.
Work closely with your Alpha Provider to find the most effective medication for you.

Personalized Treatment Plan
The 3 phases of treatment (acute, continuation, maintenance) are structured to minimize and prevent the return of symptoms, and prevent lifetime return of new episodes.
Access to the Alpha Care Team anytime with questions or concerns.
We accept insurance for medication. Our insurance liaisons will inquire about your coverage, medication copays, pharmacy benefit information, and more.
Return Visits to Optimize Treatment
We’ll ask you to complete return visits online (no additional fees) to help us measure your progress and adjust your treatment plan. Any future refills will depend on your completion of these return visits.
Prescription treatments are delivered to your home with free shipping (or pickup at your local pharmacy).
Why a flat fee?
If I have already been diagnosed by my doctor, can I get medications through Alpha?
Psychotherapy, or Talk Therapy, can be as effective as medication when treating depression.
We partner with BetterHelp, an e-counseling platform independent from Alpha, to address the mental health needs of our patients.
Treatment includes weekly sessions and unlimited texting with your therapist for an additional fee. BetterHelp will waive its charge for the first month - a $260 value.
Enroll in the Alpha Mental Health Service and get matched with a licensed therapist within 24 hours to enjoy one free month of professional online counseling.
Prescription medication has proven to be an effective treatment for depression. Each drug affects patients differently, so our Alpha Providers will work closely with you to monitor the effects and make medication adjustment and/or dosing changes.
We do not prescribe MAO inhibitors, benzodiazepines or other controlled substances.
Self Care Advice
Exercise and self care can be as effective as medication when treating depression and anxiety.
