Residential Treatment for Young Adults & Teens

With 7 beautiful treatment centers from the cliffs of Malibu to the scenic hills of San Rafael, CA, Paradigm Treatment has been helping teens and young adults with mental health issues for over a decade. Our medical and clinical teams delve deep to address the root causes of the struggles young people face in today’s always-on yet disconnected world. We work closely with youth and their families treating anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, mood and personality disorders, and co-occurring substance use. Our teachers address academic issues so that students are able to resume studies after treatment while experiential approaches such as mindfulness, yoga, and meditation empower clients to transform their lives in authentic ways. There is hope in the work we do.

Our Treatment Approach & Philosophy

Our teen and young adult facilities and related programs are designed to treat a range of issues that include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, scholastic issues, suicidality, self-harm, abuse, teen gaming and social media addictions. At Paradigm we tailor our services to best suit the needs of each and every client, and we offer a dynamic range of therapeutic services designed to optimally address the various issues that our clients face. We believe that treatment does not end when a client completes our program, and as such we are committed to providing families with discharge planning and post treatment strategies designed to provide education and support on an ongoing basis. We also have the capacity to provide telehealth services as needed and pride ourselves on building a community for our clients that can be relied upon long after our programs are completed.

Who We Treat

Paradigm treats adolescents and young adults, aged 13-26, who struggle with a range of mental health and behavioral issues. Our skilled team of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, clinical directors and therapists are carefully selected so as to optimally treat each client. Our clientele is dynamic, diverse, and often facing dual diagnoses and multiple issues simultaneously. We take great care in placement, to ensure that our clients thrive not just with their treatment team, but with their Paradigm peers as well. We not only provide daily individual and group therapies, but we also work with clients to build the skills and coping strategies they need to better manage the unprecedented challenges that today's youth face.
