Abstract

Abstract

This literature review will examine current research on the role of substance use, biological and environmental factors of a person’s childhood to adulthood in the etiology of Bipolar Disorder.

Bipolar Disorder is known to be comorbid with other psychiatric disorders with medical conditions; these things are developed and linked to make the disease. Previous research has demonstrated Individuals with bipolar disorder have problems with substance abuse. It’s also been shown that adolescents with Bipolar Disorder are approximately five times more likely to also develop substance abuse disorder (SUDs) than healthy controls. Research shows that there has been a huge increase in the community diagnosis for early-onset of Bipolar Disorder in the past 10 years. Based on the reviewed research one treatment option may be family psychoeducational approached that can be effective to stabilize the disorder. Other treatments have been shown to treat bipolar disorder and comorbid substance abuse. Future researchers should examine treatment options that are family focused.
