Signs and Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder is a mood disorder. Affecting about 1 in 40 US adults, the condition is characterized by alternating periods of mania or hypomania and depression. Due to the nature of the condition, Bipolar Disorder can be hard to detect and might first be diagnosed as depression or another condition. 

The two main presentations or “types” of Bipolar Disorder are Bipolar 1 disorder and Bipolar 2 disorder. Both conditions are treatable, but they present slightly differently. Here is the main difference between the two:

  • To meet the diagnostic criteria for Bipolar 1 disorder, you must have experienced at least one manic episode lasting for at least one week. 
  • To meet the diagnostic criteria for Bipolar 2 disorder, you must have experienced at least one hypomanic episode lasting for four days or more. 

Cyclothymia is another condition that may be diagnosed in the instance that a person has undergone alternating periods of manic or hypomanic and depressive symptoms that do not meet the complete criteria for major depressive or manic and hypomanic episodes.

Depression can present in many different ways. During a depressive episode, you or the man in your life may experience symptoms such as the following:

  • A down, low, numb, or depressed mood most or all of the day, nearly every day
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you would typically enjoy
  • Slowed psychomotor activity or restlessness (e.g., pacing)
  • Feelings of hopelessness, guilt, or worthlessness
  • Recurrent thoughts of suicide or death
  • Trouble concentrating or focusing
  • Changes in appetite or weight 
  • Increased or decreased sleep
  • Social withdrawal 
  • Fatigue 

Other symptoms, like irritability, can also occur during a depressive episode. Some people may be able to hide symptoms of depression and continue their responsibilities as usual; others may struggle to do so.

During a manic or hypomanic episode, the signs you notice in yourself or a loved one might vary substantially. Hypomania is a lower-level form of mania where symptoms are less severe. During an episode of mania or hypomania, you or the man in your life may experience symptoms such as the following:

  • An uptick in risky or impulsive behavior (e.g., reckless driving, spending, or sexual activity)
  • Uncontrollable racing thoughts or rapidly changing topics and ideas while speaking
  • Heightened activity (e.g., restlessness or working on multiple projects at once)
  • Having more energy than usual or a decreased need for sleep
  • Talking faster than usual
  • Irritability or agitation
  • Inflated self-esteem
  • Distractibility 

Some people with Bipolar Disorder may also experience paranoia, delusions, or hallucinations during manic episodes.

Effects of Bipolar Disorder

How Bipolar Disorder Affects Physical Health and Substance Abuse

Substance use disorders and other mental health conditions, including Bipolar Disorder, can take a toll on the body. Additionally, it is a well-known fact that people with mental health conditions face a higher risk of substance use disorders. Based on mental health and addiction research, here’s some of what we know:

  • People with Bipolar Disorder are seven times as likely to live with a substance use disorder. 
  • Both Bipolar Disorder and substance abuse are linked to a greater likelihood of cardiovascular disease and some other health conditions. 
  • Both Bipolar Disorder and substance abuse (e.g., alcoholism) are associated with a higher risk of road injuries. 
  • Bipolar Disorder and substance use disorders are treatable. 

When you face addiction and one or more co-occurring mental health conditions, it is vital to address them comprehensively. Our men’s bipolar treatment center offers dual diagnosis treatment, which can help you or the man you know achieve whole-person healing.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

Susan M

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!
