The Right Treatment For You

Why Go to a Professional Bipolar Disorder Treatment Center?

When you’re seeking treatment for bipolar disorder, a residential center like Elevation Behavioral Health can have many advantages. Residential treatment for mental health disorders lets you receive the highest level of psychiatric care in a comfortable, home-like setting.

If you haven’t been able to achieve relief through outpatient mental health care in a residential setting, you get a break from the triggers and stress of daily life. All of your needs are included in your treatment plan.

Bipolar disorder is a condition with extreme mood swings, including emotional ups and downs. The highs are known as mania or hypomania. The lows are depression.

Mood swings caused by bipolar can be disruptive and intense, affecting your ability to function in daily life. While bipolar disorder is a chronic condition requiring lifelong management, proper treatment can help you thrive and live a fulfilling life.

During manic episodes, you might experience:

  • Increased activity and energy levels
  • Elevated mood
  • Irritability
  • Racing thoughts
  • Rapid speech
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Reckless or impulsive behavior
  • Poor decision-making
  • Inflated self-esteem

A hypomanic episode is like a manic episode but less severe. Someone going through a hypomanic episode might still experience elevated mood and energy levels, but the symptoms are less disruptive.

Depressive episodes involve symptoms like:

  • Persistent hopelessness, sadness or emptiness
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Fatigue
  • Low energy levels
  • Weight or appetite changes
  • Trouble making decisions
  • Lack of concentration
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

While the exact cause of bipolar isn’t yet fully understood, it’s thought to stem from a combination of biological, genetic and environmental factors. Bipolar disorder can significantly affect your life, including your relationships, performance at school or work and your quality of life. It’s hard to feel a sense of stability and function effectively in daily activities because of the unpredictability of bipolar disorder.

Untreated bipolar disorder can lead to substance abuse, legal issues, financial struggles and even suicidal thoughts or behavior.

Professional mental health treatment at elevation Behavioral Health helps manage symptoms, improving outcomes when you have bipolar disorder. If you’d like to learn more about our bipolar disorder treatment center, we encourage you to contact us at any time.

How We Treat Bipolar Disorder

When you seek treatment in our specialized environment, you start with a thorough assessment to ensure an accurate diagnosis. This is also used to develop a treatment plan personalized to your needs and symptoms.

Our psychiatrists specialize in medication management, helping you find the right balance to stabilize your mood and effectively manage your symptoms.

Evidence-based behavioral and interpersonal therapies help improve your mood regulation, develop coping skills, and address contributing underlying issues.

Group therapy sessions offer opportunities for peer support, insight, and learning from the experiences of others. Part of this is psychoeducation so that you can better understand your condition and how to manage it.

Elevation emphasizes holistic wellness approaches as part of our mental health care, including mindfulness, yoga and other spiritual, emotional, and physical strategies to promote your well-being.

Once you complete our residential treatment program, we will continue supporting you with options, such as outpatient care and transitional housing, to facilitate the smooth transition back to your everyday life.

Co-occurring disorders are when someone has a mental health disorder and a substance abuse disorder. It’s not uncommon to have a bipolar diagnosis as well as a substance abuse disorder. As the mental health disorder worsens, a person may find they’re increasingly self-medicating with drugs or alcohol. When someone abuses substances, it worsens their mental health. It all creates substance use that can trigger episodes of bipolar disorder, or it can be a way to deal with manic or depressive states.

A comprehensive treatment approach integrates mood stabilization, medication management and substance abuse counseling, addressing the complexities of both conditions.

At our California mental health facility, we offer intensive outpatient treatment for bipolar as well as residential programs. Our IOP is a step down from residential or dual diagnosis programming. You can receive individual and group therapy, ongoing support, life skills training and medication management as part of our IOPs.

Why a Holistic Approach?

At our bipolar disorder treatment center, we take a holistic approach. 

  • A holistic approach can deal with the complexity of bipolar disorder symptoms. It considers the disorder’s impact on your physical health, and it can also help provide social support and interventions to rebuild relationships, improve communication skills and foster social connections.

These include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based practices, addressing underlying emotional and psychological issues.
  • Our holistic approach to bipolar treatment recognizes that your emotional, social, spiritual and physical well-being are all interconnected.
