Does drug detox help with depression?

If I was depressed while I was using and now I go through detox, will I still be depressed after detox?

Drug Detox

Drug detox helps people manage withdrawal and the beginning stages of drug treatment.

Clinical depression is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain: detox cannot fix that. Detoxification cleanses your body of harmful substances and returns you to physical equilibrium. Though you may "feel a little better" after treatment, serious depression will persist until adressed in a professional setting.
