How can I be treated for depression ?

Hi these are the drugs I was using constantly for 5 months. Cocaine Ecstasy Ketamine Heroin I only smoked once. Ive been clean for a month now from everything, but I now have extreme anxiety where I can barely go out in public places. I also have bad depression now. I m wondering if you can recommend any medications or anything that will help me with my anxiety/depression. Also are these effects permanent now or just withdrawal effects? Age:18, 17 when I was using drugs. Gender:Male Weight:129 I lost about 12 pounds when I started doing drugs.

Hi I m 16 year old and I m always feeling tired and sleepy. I sleep like 8-9 hours daily so i don t think this problem caused my a lack of sleep. Sometimes i feel really dizzy, i can t see and i don t know where i am or if anything is real. When I m nervous my heart begins to beat really fast and i get very dizzy, I feel like I m going to fall down. I usually have headaches . I feel hopeless most of the time, like I m not good enough and like I never do things right. I like being alone and I never talk about my feeling with anyone. I have been cutting myself for over 2 years. I feel empty, I feel NOTHING.

Well I wanted to know if I had insomnia. I have a really hard time sleeping at night, even if I know that I have to wake up early the next morning. On weekends I can sleep for 12 hours or more. On school days i go to sleep and 3 am and wake up at 6 am. I sleep in school and crash when I go home, I m not usually irritable but I get that way sometimes. I m really scared for my health to be honest. I m 16 years old. I believe I ve suffer from severe depression. I am very stressed and weirdly scared of the dark lol (I m too old for that) but I sleep with the light off sometimes, but I am a little paranoid with it. I see weird things sometimes in the dark. Tell me if this is normal or should I talk to a doctor or therapy.
