Introduction: Bipolar disorder is one of the most common psychiatric disorders. To treat and prevent the recurrence of the symptoms of this disorder, it is necessary to obtain information about treatment methods such as group cognitive-behavioral therapy with different techniques.

The statistical population of this study was all patients with type-I bipolar disorder admitted to Ardabil Fatemi Hospital in 2018. In order to select the statistical sample, by using the available sampling method, 24 people from the mentioned population were selected (based on psychiatric diagnosis) and were replaced in two groups (experimental and control). SCID and Yang Mania scales were used to collect the data. Then, the data were entered into SPSS-21 software. For statistical analysis, Levn and covariance test were used.
Results: The results of statistical analysis showed that cognitive-behavioral therapy with drug had a significant effect on manic indicators and reduces its symptoms in patients with this disorder (P=0.05).
