Malibu Doctors at his rehab center have diagnosed singer Chris brown with Bipolar and PTSD. Physicians blame both the untreated diagnoses on his past violent behaviors. Chris Brown opted to stay in rehab past the 90 day sentence originally ordered by his judge.
“It is evident that [Brown] has responded well” to the treatment, a probation officer wrote to the court. However, the officer said that Brown’s positive change in behavior “has occurred only recently” and the court should be cautious about releasing him too soon and should keep him on probation until November.
According to a letter from the facility treating Chris wakes up daily at 5 a.m. every morning and does 24 hours a week of community service as well as six to eight therapy sessions per week “with his team of clinicians and doctors to address his bipolar diagnosis, anger management, post-traumatic stress disorder and past substance abuse.”
The letter says that Brown “continues to make great strides” but he needs to continue “intense individual, family and medical follow-up over the next year so he can sustain the changes.”
“To ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with post-traumatic stress disorder and Bipolar II to use substances to self-medicate their biochemical mood swings and trauma triggers. Our clinical team believes Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and [post-traumatic stress disorder],” officials from Brown’s rehab facility wrote.”
The judge ordered Chris Brown to stay in rehab another 2 months until his verdict of the D.C. case is rendered. Although Chris stayed past the 90 day sentence he seemed unhappy with the verdict. Chris tweeted Never really goes the way u plan #LIFE
