Abstract

There is an urgent need for rapid, effective, and safe treatments for bipolar depression. Triple chronotherapy is a combination of sleep deprivation, sleep phase advance, and bright light therapy that has been shown to induce accelerated and sustained remissions in bipolar depression. This case report describes the first outpatient program designed to administer triple chronotherapy and reviews the organizational and clinical requirements for providing such care.
