Bipolar Disorder Treatment Center for Women & Girls

Seeking treatment for bipolar disorder is a courageous step. When you get bipolar disorder treatment, you can live a healthier and more satisfying life. Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center provides individualized bipolar disorder treatment for adult women and adolescent girls. When you’re ready, we’re here for you.  

The Benefits of Bipolar Disorder Treatment 

The benefits of bipolar disorder treatment include improvements in your physical, emotional, and social well-being. Effective individualized treatment at a bipolar disorder treatment center can help you regain control over your thoughts and actions, with the goal of empowering you to make sustained progress during and after your time in treatment. 

When you struggle with untreated bipolar disorder, you can begin to feel as though you are completely alone, and that no one could possibly understand what you’ve been experiencing. When you choose our bipolar disorder treatment center, you join a community that is dedicated to helping you achieve to your greatest potential. 

Our treatment professionals understand the unique ways that women and girls are impacted by bipolar disorder, and they will provide individualized services that address your specific needs. During bipolar disorder treatment, you will also learn to advocate on your own behalf, take ownership of your continued recovery, and access the support you need.  

Finding the Right Bipolar Disorder Treatment Center 

One of the most important factors in bipolar disorder treatment is determining which level of care is right for you. At Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, we offer bipolar disorder treatment services at the residential and partial hospitalization levels. 

Our residential bipolar disorder treatment program is designed for adolescent girls ages 12-17 and adult women age 18 and older. This level is ideal for women and girls who need round-the-clock bipolar disorder treatment. While you receive bipolar disorder treatment at this level, you will have the opportunity to step away from the pressure and distractions of day-to-day life in order to focus your full attention on your health. 

Our partial hospitalization program, or PHP, provides bipolar disorder treatment services for adult women age 18 and older. At this level, you will take part in full days of bipolar disorder treatment. When programming is not in session, you can return home or stay in an on-campus residence. Adult women may step down to this level after completing residential bipolar disorder treatment, or they may enter directly at this level.  

A member of our team will be happy to discuss the benefits and features of both levels of bipolar disorder treatment. We can also help you determine which level of bipolar disorder treatment is the best fit for you. 

Therapies Used in Bipolar Disorder Treatment 

Every adult woman or adolescent girl who develops bipolar disorder is impacted in a unique way. And every woman and girl responds differently to bipolar disorder treatment. It’s important to find a bipolar disorder treatment center that can identify your needs and develop an individualized bipolar disorder treatment plan specifically for you. 

At Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, you’ll complete thorough evaluations prior to receiving bipolar disorder treatment. The information that’s gathered during these evaluations will guide the members of your team as they develop your individualized bipolar disorder treatment plan.  

Depending on a variety of individual factors, your bipolar disorder treatment plan may include: 

  • Medication management services 
  • Individual, group, and family sessions 
  • Experiential therapies such as dance/movement and art 
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) 
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) 
  • 12-Step principles 
  • Motivational interviewing 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) 

A member of your bipolar disorder treatment team will review each element of your plan with you, discuss how these activities will help you during and after your time at our bipolar disorder treatment center, and answer any questions that you may have.

Reflecting back, I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since my first stay at TK. I walked in unsure, frightened and hopeless. 12 weeks later, I walked away carrying hope that the staff and fellow patients instilled in me. The hope started to dwindle and this process repeated itself 3 more times. However, each time I discharged I walked away with news skills (thanks DBT), more sass and grew as a person with each stay.

I discharged from TK for the last time in April of 2017. I wasn’t fixed, frankly some days I didn’t even feel “better” but I was alive. I owed that to TK, especially the staff on Maple. I was truly blessed to be supported and loved by the staff. Our conversations were filled with sass and support, what more could I want?!

Okay, the part we’ve been waiting for. I’m currently 9 months into solid recovery. I can truly say I’m not just surviving, I’m thriving. In March I started TMS treatment at an outpatient level and have had incredible, life changing results. This treatment, mixed with the skills and support of TK I’m back in school finishing my bachelors in psychology and moving on to get my masters of social work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot express my gratitude enough for the staff who never gave up on me. I was hardy easy to deal with but was ALWAYS treated with respect and love. You guys are life changers and role models. My life is better because of the advice y’all have given me.

With much love,
