Bipolar disorder treatment
Overview
Bipolar Disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings. These include emotional highs, known as manic or hypomanic episodes, and lows, known as depressive episodes. Manic episodes can involve feelings of elation, high energy, reduced need for sleep, and racing thoughts. Depressive episodes, on the other hand, are marked by feelings of deep sadness, low energy, and loss of interest or pleasure in most activities. Like most mental health disorders, bipolar disorder is complex and can have various contributing factors, including genetic, biological, and environmental influences. It usually emerges in late adolescence or early adulthood and requires lifelong management. Without treatment, bipolar disorder can disrupt relationships, career prospects, and even physical health due to risky behavior during manic episodes or neglect of self-care during depressive periods. The relationship between bipolar disorder and addiction is notable. Co-occurring bipolar disorder and addiction, often referred to as dual diagnosis, is common. During manic episodes, individuals may turn to substances to control their symptoms or enhance their euphoric feelings. During depressive episodes, substances might be used as a form of self-medication. Over time, this pattern can lead to addiction, creating a cycle that further exacerbates both the bipolar disorder and the substance use disorder.
Our Process

At Studio City Recovery, we understand the complex relationship between bipolar disorder and addiction and offer specialized treatment for clients with this dual diagnosis. Our team of clinicians is trained in treating co-occurring disorders, providing comprehensive care that addresses both conditions simultaneously. This approach is crucial because treating one disorder without addressing the other can lead to a higher risk of relapse.

Treatment for bipolar disorder typically involves a combination of medication management and psychotherapy. Medications such as mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and sometimes antidepressants are often used to manage the symptoms of bipolar disorder.

Psychotherapy approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help individuals identify and modify harmful thought patterns and behaviors, develop effective coping strategies, and improve their relationships.

As for the addiction component, we use evidence-based treatments like medication-assisted treatment (MAT), individual and group therapy, family counseling, and peer support groups. The goal is to help clients achieve and maintain sobriety while also learning skills to manage their bipolar symptoms effectively.

In addition to the standard care, Studio City Recovery also emphasizes holistic wellness, incorporating elements like nutritional guidance, physical fitness, mindfulness, and stress management techniques into our treatment plans. This holistic approach fosters overall well-being and enhances the individual's ability to manage their dual diagnosis in the long term.

Our Goal
Recovery from both bipolar disorder and addiction is a journey that requires commitment, but with the right support and resources, individuals can regain control over their lives. We are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized care to help our clients navigate their unique path to recovery.
