Christian Bipolar Disorder Treatment
Sometimes life presents challenges. When you struggle with a behavioral disorder, it’s common for life to seem out of your control. It’s easy to feel alone and abandoned by God. Many individuals with behavioral health disorders can’t seem to break the vicious cycle of recovery and relapse. Sometimes recovery requires something deeper. That’s why we’ve created a program designed to not only strengthen your mind and body, but also strengthen your relationship with God.
At Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery program, we understand that getting help for bipolar disorder can sometimes seem impossible. Many programs can provide treatment for your behavioral health disorder, but they may fail to acknowledge your deeper, spiritual needs. Along with providing you advanced bipolar disorder treatment, RENEWAL incorporates your faith into your healing process. Our faith-based approach provides a compassionate atmosphere that helps patients and their families find their way to a life of happiness and stability.
Life is full of ups and downs. It’s only natural to experience mood swings. However, for those suffering with bipolar disorder, emotions can seem like an out-of-control rollercoaster ride. Bipolar disorder is characterized by cycles of manic episodes, in which an individual feels wired and irritable, and depressive episodes, in which life seems sad and hopeless. These drastic changes in mood and energy can take a serious toll on the affected individual’s physical and psychological health. Without proper treatment, bipolar disorder can be debilitating for life. But it is entirely treatable.
At Brookhaven Hospital’s: RENEWAL Christian Treatment program, we understand that asking for help can be a difficult step. While many programs are equipped to offer you medical and psychological help, few programs address your deeper spiritual needs. In addition to offering you advanced bipolar disorder treatment, RENEWAL incorporates your faith into your recovery process. We offer compassionate, faith-based care designed to strengthen your mind, body and spirit.
The Manic Phase
The manic phase of bipolar disorder is characterized by excessive amounts of energy, restlessness and extreme irritability. Some other signs and symptoms include:
- An excessively euphoric mood
- Lack of concentration
- An irrational belief in one’s own powers
- Poor judgment
- Increased sex drive
- Abuse of drugs
The Depressive Phase
The manic phase of bipolar disorder is only temporary. In time, the affected individual will enter a depressive phase. During this period, the affected individual’s mood and energy level can appear to be the polar opposite of their manic phases. The depression can manifest in a number of ways including:
- A lasting sad or empty mood
- Heightened anxiety
- Difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions
- Sleeping too much or not enough
- Thoughts of death, suicide or suicide attempts
The ups and downs associated with bipolar disorder can make it difficult to maintain jobs, friendships and romantic relationships. You might feel helpless, but with the right guidance and care, bipolar disorder is completely treatable.
About the RENEWAL program
Brookhaven’s RENEWAL program provides an integrated approach for individuals seeking treatment of behavioral health disorders as well as people with a “dual diagnosis” based on meeting the spiritual and psychological needs of the person within a comprehensive, results-oriented treatment program.
The program begins with a spiritual assessment which allows us to help you identify the issues which are barriers to your satisfying relationship with God and enable you to incorporate a spiritual dimension into the recovery process and your life after Brookhaven.
