Our goal is to eradicate the epidemic of depression and anxiety one life at a time.
Focused on a healthier you
In 1989, Dr. Nedley moved to Ardmore, Oklahoma and joined the Lifestyle Center of America, a center focused on treating heart disease and other physical diseases from a natural, lifestyle approach. During his time in Ardmore, he wrote his first book, edited by Dr. David DeRose, called Proof Positive. This book quickly circulated the health community as a professional, comprehensive resource for lifestyle medicine. As time went on, Dr. Nedley began to realize the extensive number of patients that were suffering from something he viewed completely unrelated to his internal medicine specialty.
Dealing with depression and anxiety. Is there a way out?
By 1997, one in four of Dr. Neil Nedley's patients struggled with depression or anxiety. As an internist, his job was to get to the bottom of his patients' challenges. Through his ongoing study of the latest scientific research related to diseases of the mind, combined with years of clinical experience, Dr. Nedley committed himself to finding the root causes of depression and/or anxiety rather than just anesthetizing the symptoms with medicine. As Dr. Nedley studied the causes of major depression and anxiety, he found myriads of causes. Yet, although he found well over 100 causes, most of these fell into one of ten categories. Discovering which of these ten categories are operative in each patient not only helps to eradicate depression or anxiety, but also helps each person to achieve peak mental performance.
He soon had compiled a comprehensive resource of mental health material in his second book, Depression the Way Out, which was first published in September 2001. A few days later, the city of New York was faced with the tragic event of the terrorist attack on 9/11. Immediately, Dr. Nedley flew a team to run one of the first community depression recovery programs to that broken and hurting community. What he found in that program did not surprise him: by approaching mental health issues from a wholistic approach, the mind is quick to recover, even in the most hopeless of situations.
Rapidly, the need for such programs grew and by 2002, Nedley Health Solutions began training associate directors and facilitators to take the 8-week community based Nedley Depression & Anxiety Recovery Program™ to their own communities. Since then, the program has benefitted communities in over 20 countries across North America, Oceania, Asia, Europe, and Africa.
Serving you. Even closer.
During this time of growth, a new avenue of treating depression and anxiety emerged—The Residential Nedley Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program™. Originally started as an 18-day program and not giving any guarantees on the success of the program, the residential program was quickly changed to a 10-day program. The reason? Positive mental health results were achievable in 10 days. To date, our residential program is the most successful holistic treatment program for depression and anxiety available. We are very proud of our team and the results we have achieved by addressing mental health issues through a comprehensive treatment approach. Most importantly, we are so thankful and grateful for all the amazing participants we have been able to help through the years. The transformations we have witnessed and the testimonies we have received are far more valuable and rewarding than anything we could have imagined.
