A two-year study reported in the September 2005 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry supports a widely held belief that effective treatment for Bipolar Disorder includes helping patients achieve stable rhythms in daily life. The specific treatment focused on helping patients maintain daily routine and gain balance and stability in their personal and social lives. Patients who had this treatment were less likely to relapse over the next two years than patients who had therapy with a different focus. It was especially important for this intervention to be done early. (Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2005;62:996-1004)
