Extreme fluctuations in energy and mood are the hallmarks of bipolar disorder, a psychiatric illness that induces severe psychological instability. But contrary to popular belief, bipolar disorder is much more than just mood swings; it causes dramatic changes in cognitive functioning, emotional states, behaviour, and judgment. Individuals diagnosed with this disease may veer from a depressed state to a manic high in days, depending on the type and nature of their disorder. The consequential effects of bipolar disorder are broad-ranging and may cause difficulties in maintaining careers, relationships, and personal life.
Interestingly, studies have found an increased incidence of alcohol and substance use in bipolar individuals. Surveys suggest that approximately half of those diagnosed with an underlying bipolar disorder depend on alcohol to carry out the normal activities of life. When severe symptoms of bipolar and alcoholism occur together, the potential for adverse outcomes significantly increases. Fortunately, various treatment modalities, including medications, individual and group counselling, and intensive addiction treatment, are available to help such people achieve inner balance and lead more productive lives.
