Bipolar Disorder

Navigating Bipolar Together

Understanding Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is a complex psychiatric condition characterized by significant mood fluctuations, from emotional highs (mania) to lows (depression). Influenced by genetic, brain chemistry, and environmental factors, BD can be extremely debilitating and is quite common. Approximately 2.8% of adults in the United States are diagnosed with BD yearly. Common symptoms include changes in sleep patterns, energy levels, and behavior, as well as delusions and hallucinations. Bipolar Disorder manifests in three types: Bipolar I Disorder, Bipolar II Disorder, and Cyclothymic Disorder, each requiring ongoing treatment.

Customized Care for Bipolar Disorder

Treatment Approaches for Bipolar Disorder

Our approach emphasizes one-on-one and group support in an outpatient setting, empowering clients to lead active, stable lives. With over 45 years of experience, the Life Adjustment Team is committed to assisting individuals in managing Bipolar Disorder effectively.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation

Our Psychosocial Rehabilitation model offers comprehensive, personalized treatment plans for Bipolar Disorder. This includes in-depth assessments, in-home visits, and tailored therapy focused on skill-building. Cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy sessions help manage emotions, reduce self-harm, and foster emotional regulation.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers intensive, structured care for those with Bipolar Disorder who need more support than traditional outpatient services. PHP includes daily group and individual therapy sessions, medication management, and comprehensive psychiatric assessment. This program is designed for stabilization and transition to lower levels of care.

Types of Bipolar

Understanding Bipolar Disorder Variants

Bipolar Disorder is a chronic illness requiring ongoing treatment. It manifests in three types: Bipolar I Disorder, Bipolar II Disorder, and Cyclothymic Disorder, each with unique patterns of episodes.

Bipolar I Disorder

Characterized by manic episodes lasting at least seven days or severe manic symptoms leading to hospitalization. Depressive episodes typically last two weeks, and manic and depressive symptoms can co-occur.

Bipolar II Disorder

Marked by patterns of depressive episodes interspersed with hypomanic episodes. Major depression is a key symptom, often complicating the distinction between Bipolar I and II. While depressive episodes are present in both Bipolar I and II, depressive episodes are often more frequent and lengthier than those in Bipolar I disorder.

Cyclothymic Disorder (Cyclothymia)

The mildest form of Bipolar Disorder involves mood swings less severe than full mania or depression. Untreated Cyclothymia may escalate to full-blown Bipolar Disorder.
