Symptoms of Bipolar Disorders
Each type of bipolar disorder involves precise and intense shifts in mood, energy, and activity, called mood episodes. These extreme emotional episodes are categorized as manic, depressive, or hypomanic. Hypomanic is still an upswing in the mood but is less severe than a true manic episode. People who have bipolar disorders will also have normal moods, and diagnosis can sometimes be difficult because their symptoms will vary according to what type of episode they’re experiencing at the time. This makes support and therapy critical at Oceanfront Recovery’s bipolar disorder treatment program. Coupled with substance abuse, treatments are considered through dual diagnosis treatments in Laguna Beach.
