Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

Bipolar disorder, also referred to as manic-depressive disorder, falls under the umbrella of mood disorders. Bipolar is one of the most common mood disorders linked with substance abuse. Unusual mood swings and shifts in energy and activity levels are the most common symptoms experienced with bipolar. People with bipolar disorder can go very quickly from feeling energized and optimistic to sad, hopeless or in despair. These shifts in moods are known as manic and depressive episodes.

Manic episodes include:

  • Feeling very up, elated, or a “natural high”
  • Feeling energetic
  • Feeling wired or jumpy
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Quick thoughts, thinking they can do a lot of things at once
  • Uncharacteristic, risky behavior, such as reckless sex or frivolous spending of money

Depressive Episodes include:

  • Feeling hopeless
  • Feeling lethargic
  • Sleeping too much
  • No joy in normal activities
  • Morbid thoughts of death or suicide
  • Feeling tired more than usual
