Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder (formerly known as manic-depression) is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to complete daily tasks.

Individuals who suffer from bipolar disorder partake in alcohol or drugs to self-medicate if their symptoms go untreated.

Similar to substance abuse, bipolar disorder poses a risk to the individual’s physical and emotional well-being.


Symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe but treatable.

  • Periods of intense depression
  • Episodes of heightened activity
  • An exaggerated sense of self-importance.


  • Moments of tremendous optimism and significant pessimism
  • Grandiose feelings
  • Rapid speech
  • Little sleep
  • Impaired judgment, irrational behavior
  • Delusional behavior
  • Hallucinations


  • Hopeless feelings
  • Loss of interest in things that used to make you happy
  • Fatigue
  • Changes in appetite
  • Self-loathing
  • Suicidal thoughts


  • Higher rate of relationship problems
  • Economic instability
  • Accidental injuries
  • Suicide
  • More likely to develop addiction to drugs or alcohol


  • About 56% if individuals with bipolar have experienced drug or alcohol addiction
  • About 41% had abused drugs or were addicted to drugs
  • Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance among bipolar individuals


Having a dual diagnosis of both bipolar disorder and substance abuse can make recovery even more challenging.

In the past, bipolar disorder and chemical dependency were addressed as separate conditions and treated separately. At Ambrosia, we treat not only substance abuse and addiction but also the mental illness components. Our addiction professionals integrate individualized treatment plans for each client to treat the individual’s body, mind, and soul.

Bipolar treatment encompasses some different strategies, such as:

  • Centralized care provided in a single rehabilitation facility
  • A collaborative treatment team that includes psychologists, addiction counselors, and bipolar specialists
  • Individual psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on managing emotions and minimizing the risk of substance abuse
  • Support groups from others who are battling addiction and mood disorders


“I definitely knew there was something going on for years, but I couldn’t pinpoint what it was. It’s a hard realization to process because of the stigma behind being bipolar and the disease of addiction. But with the support of the specialists at Ambrosia’s West Palm Beach rehabilitation centers and my family back home, it became a huge sigh of relief because finally, I had an answer. I now take the proper medication for my disorder, I work a continuous 12 step program, and I take my life day by day.” – Scott A.

Treatment is for: Myself Loved one

Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
