Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Bipolar disorder is a biological disorder. Also known as manic-depressive illness, bipolar disorder affects a person’s mood, energy and their day-to-day function.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 5.7 million American adults suffer from bipolar disorder in a given year. That is about 2.6% of the U.S. population ages 18 and older. Children and teens can also experience bipolar disorder, however, many are not diagnosed.

At the Phoenix Recovery Center, we offer individualized treatment programs for mental health disorders, including treatment for bipolar disorder. In addition, we know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. We know and understand the biological and psychological science that support treatments in trauma, emotional disorders, and other mental health concerns.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mental illness where a person experiences extreme changes in mood, both mania and depression. These shifts in mood and emotion can vary from multiple times a day to a couple of times a year. Sometimes people with bipolar disorder can experience both mania and depression.

Although bipolar disorder can take on several forms, below are four basic types:

  • Bipolar I Disorder—Classified as having manic episodes that last longer than a week and may require hospital care. A person can also experience depressive episodes or both manic and depressive symptoms. However, Bipolar I disorder is usually extreme manic episodes.
  • Bipolar II Disorder—Classified as having one or more extreme depressive episodes and at least one episode of hypomania. A person may experience level moods between the extreme depressive episodes. The hypomanic symptoms are not at the same level as full-blown manic episodes found in Bipolar I disorder.
  • Cyclothymic Disorder—Classified as a milder form of bipolar disorder where a person has various periods of hypomania as well as depressive symptoms lasting for at least two years.
  • Not Otherwise Specified (NOS)—Classified as a bipolar disorder that doesn’t follow a specific pattern from the three listed above.

Causes of bipolar disorder can range from genetics to individual brain structure and functioning. In addition, bipolar disorder can run in families. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, scientists concluded that there is no single cause to bipolar disorder.

What is Bipolar Disorder Rehab and What Does That Look Like at PRC?

Treatment for bipolar disorder is a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Medication works as antidepressants and mood stabilizers while therapy provides a person with support and guidance. Because this disorder is a lifelong illness, it’s vital to establish a treatment plan that can last long-term. Without treatment, the symptoms will worsen to a point where a person can no longer function.
