Understanding Bipolar Disorder
Like most mental health illnesses, there is no cure-all pill or a single form of treatment to “cure” bipolar disorder. Fortunately, several types of behavioral therapies and medications allow clients to manage their symptoms and reduce the severity and frequency of their episodes.
There are three types of bipolar disorders; bipolar I, bipolar II, and cyclothymic. The symptoms of bipolar disorder vary, depending on the type of episode. Some of the symptoms of a depressive episode include:
- Feelings of emptiness and hopelessness
- Increased appetite and weight gain
- Trouble concentrating
- Little interest in favorite activities
Symptoms of a manic episode include:
- Feeling jumpy or wired
- Lack of appetite
- Talking fast
- Racing thoughts
- Risky or unhealthy behavior
At Crestview Recovery, our therapists have experience working with men and women struggling with bipolar disorder and other types of mental health illnesses. We take the time to understand their individual symptoms. Then, we create a custom treatment program that will help them reach all of their recovery goals.
Types of Bipolar Treatment in Portland, Oregon
Treating bipolar disorder requires an understanding of the unique circumstances that led to the condition. Behavioral therapists will work with each client to get to know their history and background to develop an effective treatment program that includes behavioral and holistic therapies and medication management.
Some of the treatment options of a bipolar treatment program in Portland include:
Clients will participate in various types of behavioral therapy in group and private therapy sessions. Men and women will gain a better understanding of how their thoughts and feelings affect them. At the same time, they’ll develop healthy coping skills to manage their symptoms and reduce the frequency of depressive and manic episodes.
Several types of medications, such as mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and antipsychotics, can reduce symptoms and allow clients to better manage their symptoms. Medical staff will administer medications and work with clients to find the correct dosage to minimize any negative side effects while still receiving the maximum benefits.
