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.
