Update: This was a post I wrote back on November 12, 2012 I will be publishing a much more detailed post about my experience about Bipolar and depression and how it affected our family.
As just (1) source was part of a product review of Morningside Recovery Website.
As a mom that lost her son after battling his whole life with ADD, bipolar and manic depression. I wish I had known there was such programs as Morningside Recovery offers.
Morningside is located located in beautiful Newport Beach, California. They offer individualized programs, group therapies, outpatient services, adventure programs and transitional living.

Sometimes with mental illness the person either does not believe they have a problem and wont seek help or they dont want to face up to it, Morningside offer’s intervention in a safe and loving way of the family member to realizing that seeking treatment is the best way. Sometimes it is very difficult for family members to work with the individual so an intervention is the best way. Interventions can change the course of a families life of dealing with mental illness and addition to break down the barrier of drug addition.
It has also been proven that if the individual will seek out the help it proves to be a long life of sobriety and a successful and happier person.
