BIPOLAR DISORDER TREATMENT
Our emotions and feelings often get the better of us. On any given day, a typical person may experience an incredibly broad range of emotions—often flip-flopping. Happiness, sadness- sadness, happiness… it’s simply the way of life. However, prolonged periods of intense and drastic mood changes may in some instances be a signal of a brain disorder known as manic-depressive illness, or, more popularly, bipolar disorder.
For someone afflicted by bipolar disorder it is not uncommon to feel exuberant and energized some days and despondent and depressed on others, with each episode lasting for a week or more; these mood swings may make it difficult to sleep, hard to stay focused and especially tough in the workplace. The persistence of these symptoms may point to the need for clinical attention, which often times can materialize in the form of residential or inpatient mental health treatment.
At Resilience Treatment Center here West Los Angeles (Southern California region), our complimentary assessment can be your first step towards a diagnosis and an effective and comprehensive treatment plan. In fact, we have strategically created a broad-scoped team of physicians, therapists and clinical support staff that bring together a vast expertise in most all matters involving bipolar disorder diagnoses, treatment and long-term recovery planning.
Identifying, Treating and Overcoming Bipolar Disorder
Inasmuch as a bout with Bipolar disorder may feel isolating, it is worth noting that millions of Americans suffer from bipolar disorder to varying degrees. In fact, while an estimated 6 million people struggle with bipolar disorder and variations of related mental health disorders, the number of people seeking treatment for such conditions is much smaller. Since bipolar disorder is often not recognized and/or is stigmatized by patients, relatives or friends, it is all too common that sufferers will not get the recovery services they need until they are forced into it.
Like many other diseases, there is no cure for bipolar disorder. However, through effective and continuous treatment, usually in the form of residential or inpatient treatment to some capacity, the symptoms of bipolar disorder can be managed. Currently, several recovery methods and approaches have proven as effective. For starters, the use of medication when medically appropriate has demonstrated the ability to control symptoms—although different people respond differently to medications. It is often times suggested that a patient starting a medication regimen be in an inpatient or residential treatment center environment, or at least primarily during the first few weeks . The typical medications employed to treat bipolar disorder include mood stabilizers, atypical antipsychotics, and antidepressants. Other solutions, too, have proven important in building a comprehensive treatment program for bipolar disorder, especially psychotherapy.
Alongside medication, psychotherapy can be a valuable tool in bipolar disorder treatment. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it can “provide support, education and guidance to people with bipolar disorder and their families.” Among the forms of psychotherapy that have proven especially effective are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Family-focused therapy, interpersonal social and rhythm therapy and psychoeducation.
