Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Succeed in Evidence-Based Treatment

Infused with Eastern Approaches

For sustained, long-term resilience from the cycle of manic and depressive episodes, we’ve pioneered an approach to Bipolar Disorder Treatment that utilizes eastern modalities coupled with community. As the 1st community-based program in California, we address the sociological factors often overlooked in managed care. By using eastern approaches to mental health treatment, we help you reframe bipolar disorder to establish coping mechanisms for mental clarity and prolonged recovery.

The Barn Life Difference

Unique Programs That Close the Gap

There is a gap in mental health services. For some Bipolar Disorder sufferers, inpatient programs are not necessary but individual therapy is not enough. Barn Life’s outpatient programs fall boldly within this gap. Our intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are tailored to the goals, desires, and unique life circumstances of each individual. Explore our programs to learn more about the right option for you.

Find Your Life Spark Again

Through our emphasis on community, Barn Life provides a sense of belonging allowing individuals to connect with others who share a common denominator. Our licensed bipolar disorder therapists have extensive experience treating conditions like Bipolar I, Bipolar II, Cyclothymic disorder, and other types. Surrounded by a safe community, we believe you will your life’s spark again.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Many mental health treatment programs fail because they do not account for the entirety of the individual – mind, body, and soul. Uniquely, Barn Life Recovery does just that! Successful treatment for individuals with treatment-resistant bipolar disorder centers around nourishing our willful intent to heal, grow and become healthier people. Every step of the way, we teach you how to walk confidently down your life’s path.

Hear From Those We've Impacted

Barn Life is uniquely special. As someone who has had long stretches of sobriety with "traditional" communities and methods, Barn Life stepped in when I started struggling during the pandemic and said "traditional" methods failed to help.The staff here are exceptional. This is a truly subjective statement, but it is my honest opinion that the people from the owner (Hi Matt!) to EVERYONE else works there because they believe in the work and want to share the tools they found.Barn Life and their little sibling, Peer Mental Wellness were the launchpad from a shell of an existence to person with self-love/respect, and a life-mission of personal development.

Barn life is probably one of the most amazing facilities you could ever attend when it comes to mental illness. This was the first place that popped up when I was searching for help and I’m so thankful that it did. The environment is very therapeutic, the staff is awesome, and the group discussions and activities were so helpful in me understanding what I was experiencing. Do not hesitate to be a part of this place. It’s literally a game changer. I was only there for 6 weeks but I wished I stayed at least 6 months. Ever since returning home, I’ve been much happier and my perspective has changed dramatically. I’ve done things and participated in events at my college that I never thought I would be able to do. This place is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful that I found this place.

My daughter has been at Barn Life Recovery now for two months. It was my last resort to send her 9 hours away from me. She has been in drug and mental health rehabs in and out for two years. This was my last stitch effort to save my daughter and get her back to herself. Alyssa and I spoke multiple times before deciding. Their willingness to do everything for her and the different teams they have work with them is amazing. My daughter is happy again and clean and sober. She loves it there in their outpatient program. They restore your faith in humanity. They help restore someone who is broken in so many places to themselves. They have put the light back in my daughters eyes. They are committed to helping each person who truly wants the help. They assist in helping them get jobs and be responsible members of society. I recommend their program to anyone wanting to recover from drug, alcohol and mental health.Thank you to all the people at Barn Life who have made my daughter smile and bring the light back to her eyes. I am truly grateful.DawnaLee
