Bipolar disorder, previously known as manic depression, is a mood disorder characterized by extreme fluctuations in emotions. Individuals with bipolar disorder experience a constant rollercoaster, from episodes of suicidal depression to periods of hyperactivity, heightened aggression, and even psychosis. Bipolar disorder can be exacerbated by traumatic experiences in childhood or adult life, leading to co-occurring conditions like borderline personality disorder (BPD) or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
In an attempt to exert control and regulate their emotions, many with bipolar disorder turn to unhealthy coping practices. One common form of coping is substance abuse, including the consumption of THC, depressants (opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines) and stimulants (cocaine, amphetamines). Individuals with bipolar disorder may also develop eating disorders for the same reason, including binge eating, purging, and restricting food intake.
Understanding these challenges, the Delray Center for Healing offers comprehensive full-day and half-day programming for dual diagnosis bipolar disorder clients.

Every comprehensive outpatient program at the Delray Center is constructed specifically with the client in mind. As a result, exact services vary from treatment plan to treatment plan, based on the initial psychiatric evaluation, but include the following:
