Bridges to Recovery is proud to announce that they are now utilizing a revolutionary brand new approach to treating Bipolar disorder. In serious cases, bipolar disorder treatment is often compromised by the extreme mood swings that accompany both manic and depressive phases. This creates roadblocks that make it difficult for bipolar disorder sufferers to maintain their recovery by:
- consistently complying with instructions for medications necessary to regulate mood
- actively engaging in outpatient treatment
- avoiding destructive choices in their efforts to cope with their symptoms
When treatment fails to provide relief, feelings of hopelessness and emotional despair often overwhelm both the sufferer and his or her loved ones.
At Bridges To Recovery, each patient with bipolar disorder receives consistent emotional support as they begin to learn healthy ways to experience their mood and emotions. BTR’s staff takes a holistic, integrated approach to support patients who suffer the ups and downs of bipolar disorder in finding stability. They also recognize that a long history of struggling with manic and depressive symptoms can trigger addictive behavior patterns, and vice versa, which requires special care. That's why many patients require more integrated treatment for bipolar disorder and other mood disorders.
What is Bipolar Residential Treatment like at Bridges to Recovery?
Many people suffering from a bipolar disorder benefit from intense treatment, particularly in the context of an ongoing mood episode.

Doctors and therapists with years of experience treating bipolar disorder work diligently to find answers and treatment solutions that will return those suffering from bipolar disorder to a healthier and more enjoyable mood state.
