Bipolar Disorder Treatment in Arizona
Facing the Root Cause of Your Addictions
Bipolar disorder – also called manic depression – affects countless Americans with a wide range of symptoms. For many people living with bipolar disorder, the pervasive feeling of having no real control of themselves and the frequent mood swings can drive them to drugs and alcohol for a false and fleeting sense of relief. The end result is often comorbid issues caused by both a dangerous addiction and the complications of bipolar disorder.
If you are in the same or similar situation, please know that you are in no way alone or out of treatment options. Decision Point Center offers bipolar disorder treatments in Arizona as part of our dual diagnosis programs. Using our extensive experience helping people with mental health difficulties and substance addictions, we can help you, too, tackle the hardships in your life and find a way to alleviate or overcome them.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder gets its name from the way it makes people seemingly switch between emotional and energy highs and lows with little to no outward explanation. It is often recognizable by high-energy manic episodes followed by low-energy depressive episodes, and vice versa. Both forms of episodes can last days, weeks, or months. “In-between” episodes may feel rare.
Symptoms of a manic episode can include:
- Heightened anxiety
- Loss of impulse control
- Dramatic weight loss
Symptoms of a depressive episode can include:
- Feeling of guilt or hopelessness
- Uncontrolled sobbing
- Body aches
- Rapid weight gain
The mood swings and physical changes caused by bipolar disorder can be disorienting for the person with the mental health difficulty and their loved ones. Trying to become accustomed to the unusual changes can feel frustrating and exhausting. At emotional low points in either a manic episode or depressive episode, the temptation to use drugs or alcohol as a form of escapism can be severe, which is how so many people with bipolar disorders also become addicted to unsafe substances.
Treatment Plans & Therapies Made for You
Bipolar disorder affects everyone differently. By the nature of the mental health difficulty, it can be extremely difficult to predict how one person will be impacted by the way it can disrupt their emotions, thought processes, and day-to-day life. For this reason and more, Decision Point Center does not use premanufactured bipolar disorder treatments for anyone who comes to our Arizona treatment center. We like to take the time to get to know everyone as an individual and as a friend, so we can create truly personalized and “you-based” treatment plans.
Two cornerstones of many mental treatment programs include:
- Psychotherapy: There are various forms of psychotherapy that can help you get a better understanding of how manic and depressive episodes manifest, as well as their consequences, such as triggering dangerous addictions.
- Holistic activities: Through several different enriching activities, we can help you find a sense of grounding, satisfaction, and fulfillment in something unharmful. By engaging yourself in new activities, you can heal emotional wounds you might not have known you had suffered due to your mental health difficulties and addictions.
