Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that creates an irregular behavioral pattern involving severe mood shifts. Many people who have bipolar disorder also struggle with a substance abuse problem. People with bipolar disorder often use drugs in an effort to self-medicate to relieve the difficult symptoms of bipolar disorder, developing a dangerous cycle of drug abuse.
