Recognizing the Signs of Bipolar Disorder

Individuals with bipolar disorder experience drastic shifts in mood, from manic highs to depressive lows, impacting daily functioning.

During manic episodes, they may require little to no sleep yet remain energized, leading to erratic behavior and impaired judgment.

Engaging in risky behaviors such as reckless spending, substance abuse, or impulsive decision-making is common during manic phases.

During depressive episodes, individuals may lose interest in activities they once enjoyed, experiencing persistent sadness or emptiness.

Cognitive symptoms like poor concentration, memory issues, and indecisiveness often accompany both manic and depressive episodes, affecting work or academic performance.

Bipolar Disorder Treatment in South Florida 

What is Bipolar disorder?

Also known as bipolar affective disorder, bipolar disorder is a mood disorder. It can cause extreme highs and lows in mood, energy, and activity levels. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 2.8% of U.S. adults or approximately 5 million people are living with bipolar disorder. 

This condition can make it difficult for someone to lead a high quality of life and harm relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and many others. The good news is that with the right treatment plan, an individual with bipolar disorder may lead a fulfilling, productive life.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

The symptoms of bipolar disorder vary from individual to individual. Typically, however, those with this condition experience the following:

  • Episodes of mania or an elevated mood
  • Episodes of depression or a low mood

Signs of mania include excessive energy, extreme high feelings, decreased need for sleep, unusual sex drive or drug abuse, aggressive behavior, and incredibly poor judgment. Depression may be present if an individual is persistently sad or anxious, feels hopeless or worthless, has difficulty concentrating, or has thoughts of suicide.

Treatments for Bipolar Disorder at CBH

Since bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition, the goal of treatment is to manage symptoms, and will depend on an individual’s unique lifestyle and circumstances. At Compassion Behavioral Health, we offer a variety of treatments for patients with bipolar disorder, such as:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) 

Group therapy

Motivational interviewing 


Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) 


We also treat patients who are facing both bipolar disorder and a substance abuse condition. Between our substance abuse treatment program and our mental health treatment program, we can effectively treat both disorders at the same time.

Residential Treatment for Bipolar Disorder 

Compassion Behavioral Health offers a residential treatment program that aims to offer intense care in a structured and supportive setting for individuals suffering from bipolar disorder. This program is designed for those who require greater care as they have difficulty managing their bipolar symptoms. Our residential program offers clients round-the-clock assistance and a thorough treatment plan that addresses medication management, group sessions, individual therapy, and holistic therapies to reduce mood swings and enhance general well-being. With the distractions of everyday life removed, this immersion method enables patients to concentrate only on their recovery, leading to a better comprehension of their condition and long-term management approaches.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for Bipolar Disorder 

For patients with bipolar disorder who need more support than outpatient care can offer or who are transitioning from residential treatment, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers an organized treatment option in addition to residential care. Through Compassion Behavioral Health’s PHP, clients can participate in CBT, DBT, and other therapeutic modalities for the entire day and then go back to the housing we provide in the evening. The goal of this program is to continue treating bipolar Disorder clients at the level required to manage their condition while offering a well-rounded care plan that facilitates a gradual return to normal living.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Bipolar Disorder

Without requiring a residential stay, our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for bipolar disorder offers crucial therapy to those looking for a flexible treatment alternative that fits with job, school, or family obligations. The IOP consists of several weekly treatment sessions that provide a blend of group therapy, individual counseling, and education on symptom management and relapse prevention. For those who are committed to their recovery and have secure living situations but need continuous assistance to properly manage the condition, this level of care is perfect.

We at Compassion Behavioral Health are aware of the complex needs of those suffering from bipolar disorder. We are dedicated to providing compassionate, all-encompassing treatment that is customized to each client’s journey toward recovery, whether through our PHP, IOP, or residential treatment. This ensures the best possible result for leading a well-rounded and fulfilling life.
