Rehabilitation and its benefits in treating Bipolar Disorder

Rehabilitation- The Path To Normal Life.A person with Bipolar Disorder experiences polarizing episodes of mania and depression. Individuals can experience drastically opposite symptoms ranging from increased energy, grandiose feelings, sleeplessness and impulsive behaviour during mania, to sadness, hopelessness, fatigue, disturbed sleep patterns in depression. Some may experience a Mixed State with both manic and depressive symptoms simultaneously or a rapid cycle state where a person experiences these episodes consecutively. These extreme mood swings can also hinder a person’s ability to function normally.

Bipolar Disorder is a serious mental disorder. Diagnosis in early stages followed by treatment, can help tackle the symptoms and allow a patient to lead a balanced life. Yet about 60 percent of the patients are misdiagnosed in the early stages, as few symptoms are identical to other conditions. The experience and symptoms can be different for each individual and need a different approach for an effective treatment. Hence, it is necessary to encourage patients to speak their mind for accurate diagnosis and discuss possible treatment options.

Apart from medications and therapies, rehabilitation also forms a part of an effective treatment plan. It includes residential rehabilitation as well as follow-on care and counselling.

  • The trained staff can help regulate daily medication, therapy sessions, sleep schedule, etc., to establish a normal routine
  • It provides a 24/7 medical supervision while receiving treatment. Constant supervision allows close monitoring of patient’s condition, symptoms, progress and suggest quick modifications in treatment, if needed
  • Continued therapy helps avoid the relapse episode as a result of discontinuing medicines
  • It is a best option in severe cases that require immediate stabilisation

Rehabilitation centres offer and create a solid support system for many individuals suffering from the same mental disorder and are seeking therapy. They aim to provide stabilisation programs to keep an individual motivated to continue the treatment with as little disruption as possible for a healthy life.
