Bipolar Residential Treatment Center Program

The Arroyos Residential Treatment Center is a licensed primary mental health care facility with 24/7 staff including a psychiatrist and over 20 hours of psychotherapy with doctoral level therapists per week. We offer specialized residential treatment for bipolar disorder including an evidence-based program for bipolar disorder. We are licensed by the State of California as a primary mental health treatment facility, not a drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Our inpatient bipolar treatment includes:

Psychiatric medication management

Bipolar-specific individual psychotherapy

Bipolar-specific family therapy

Mental health focused group therapy

IPSRT (evidence-based bipolar treatment)

CBT for bipolar disorder

Psychoeducation about bipolar disorder

Circadian rhythm therapy

Our Life Skills program identifies skills deficits that need improvement prior to discharge to a setting that requires the patient to have more personal independent living skills. Some topics covered include:

Financial life skills

Transportation life skills

Vocational/educational life skills

Independent living life skills

Personal appearance/self-care life skills

Meal preparation/shopping life skills

Leisure activity planning life skills

Medication and health life skills

Our bipolar treatment program incorporates an abstinence-based CBT/REBT psychological approach for those patients who also have a substance use disorder. We find that standard 12-step treatment is not optimal for most bipolar patients.
