Who We Treat
Families come to Paradigm from all parts of the United States and abroad. Our program is designed to insure that every family has an opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of treatment, regardless of their geographic location.
The young people who come to us for treatment are generally described as really good kids, who simply have an issue with which they need help. Those issues may include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, substance abuse, addiction, eating disorders and any number of behavioral and mental health concerns.
Our mental Health program is designed to meet the needs of adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety or any number of complex mental and emotional health issues.

Our Adolescent Treatment Program is about much more than simple behavior modification.
Our adolescent eating disorder program is designed to treat issues ranging from anorexia nervosa to bulimia nervosa, binge eating and body dysmorphic disorders.
Our Adopted Teen Treatment Program is designed to meet the special needs that often times present during adolescence. This includes emotional health issues related to both international and domestic adoptions.
Many of the adolescents who come to Paradigm are dealing with Trauma and/or Teen Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This may be the result of experiencing a life threatening situation, sexual assault, or physical assault, etc. It can also lead to or be experienced along with other mood disorders, such as Depression.
A good number of young people who come to us for treatment are gifted students, artists, musicians or performers.
Experience has taught us that young athletes are often times less likely to seek treatment for any number of reasons.
Many of the adolescents that come to us for treatment are struggling with unresolved grief issues.
A co-occurring disorder is sometimes referred to as co-morbidity or a dual diagnosis. The application of any of these labels suggests that a teen is being treated for more than a single issue.
Being a teen in the twenty first century holds ever increasing promise and challenges. Today an increasing number of adolescents are struggling with Teen Internet addiction, Teen Cell Phone Addiction and Teen Social Media Addiction. In an effort to better assist families, we have created treatment programs designed to meet such needs.
Anxiety keeps many young people from living their lives or achieving their full potential. Our Teen Anxiety Treatment Program is designed to meet the unique needs of youth struggling with General Anxiety Disorders, Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks or other related issues.
