About half of people with bipolar disorder also struggle with addiction. As with any other disorder, it can be tempting to self-medicate. Drugs and alcohol provide a source of temporary relief from emotional situations and manic episodes for people with bipolar.
The goal of the bipolar dual diagnosis program at Newsong Recovery is to diagnose and treat bipolar disorder and provide each patient with the tools necessary to empower them to achieve long-term recovery.
Bipolar disorder is a complex psychiatric condition, especially when combined with a substance use disorder. Treatment should draw from multiple modalities and disciplines to address the client’s neurological, psychological, physical, and psychosocial needs. Common treatments used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Cognitive behavioral therapy
● Family-focused therapy
● Motivational interviewing
● Solution-focused therapy
● Trauma therapies
● Psychoeducation and support groups
● Mood stabilizers
● Antidepressant medications
● Anticonvulsant drugs
To create a successful outcome, bipolar dual diagnosis treatment will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s bipolar dual diagnosis program is closely supervised by a team of board-certified psychiatrists with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the whole person.
At Newsong Recovery, your dual diagnosis treatment will begin with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the most effective combination of psychotherapy, medications, and other treatments. Based on the findings, combined with a thorough and compassionate discussion with you, the psychiatrists will formulate the best course of action for your treatment.
Because bipolar disorder is a chronic illness, treatment must be ongoing.
