Bipolar Disorder Treatment in Deland, FL

Home/ Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Bipolar Disorders are complex mental health conditions that require a comprehensive treatment approach. Additionally, these diagnoses can be a challenging condition to manage, and a comprehensive treatment plan often requires a combination of therapeutic interventions. At DeLand Treatment Solutions, we use GeneSight testing, medication management and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). This three-pronged approach includes key indicating factors that lead to a successful treatment plan.

Bipolar Disorder Treatment Approaches

Medication Management:

Medications are a crucial part of managing bipolar disorders. Medications can help stabilize mood, reduce the frequency and severity of manic and depressive episodes, and improve overall functioning.

Common medications for bipolar disorder include mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and antidepressants.

GeneSight Testing:

GeneSight testing, also known as pharmacogenetic testing, is a tool that helps identify how an individual’s genetic makeup may affect their response to specific psychiatric medications.

This testing can provide valuable information to healthcare providers about which medications are more likely to be effective and which ones might have an adverse reaction based on an individual’s genetic profile.

This can help streamline the medication selection process and reduce the risk of adverse effects.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT):

ACT is a type of psychotherapy that helps individuals accept difficult thoughts and feelings rather than struggling with them. It emphasizes mindfulness techniques, values clarification, and commitment to behavior change.

ACT helps individuals with bipolar disorder to develop psychological flexibility, improve coping skills, and enhance their ability to manage distressing emotions and experiences.

ACT is particularly beneficial in fostering resilience and improving overall quality of life.

Bipolar Disorder Statistics

Who is Affected by Bipolar Disorder?

  • Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings, ranging from high energy (mania) to low energy (depression).
  • It affects approximately 5.7 million adult Americans, or about 2.6% of the U.S. population age 18 and older every year.
  • The median age of onset for bipolar disorder is 25 years, but it can start in early childhood or as late as the 40s and 50s.
  • Bipolar disorder affects an equal number of men and women of all races, ethnic groups, and social classes.
  • More than two-thirds of people with bipolar disorder have at least one close relative with the illness or with unipolar major depression, suggesting that bipolar disorder has a genetic component.

Women and Bipolar Disorder

  • Research suggests that women and individuals diagnosed with bipolar II disorder are notably more prone to experiencing rapid cycling phases compared to their male counterparts who have the same condition (Damone, A. L., Joham, A. E., Loxton, D., Earnest, A., Teede, H. J., & Moran, L. J. (2018). “Depression, anxiety, and perceived stress in women with and without PCOS: A community-based study.” Psychological Medicine, 49(09)).
  • Additionally, other research findings point to the possibility that women diagnosed with bipolar disorder may encounter a higher frequency of depressive episodes and mixed episodes when compared to men diagnosed with the same condition (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 58, 1995 [Suppl.15]).

Economic Considerations

  • According to the World Health Organization, bipolar disorder ranks as the sixth most significant contributor to global disability.
