“Our 19-year-old daughter, who suffers from anxiety and depression, willingly checked herself into Paradigm’s Beach House program recently. Based on the Paradigm counseling and treatment, she emerged from the program much more positive and she was armed with new tools and skills to maintain and improve her mental health. Paradigm’s family therapy sessions were especially beneficial. The treatment professionals were outstanding and the support staff, both onsite and in their corporate offices, were also outstanding. Five stars! I highly recommend the program.” – Scott Imbach, February 2022, from Google Reviews

“We lost one of our sons to suicide, which nearly destroyed his twin brother and our family. The loving and knowledgeable staff took in our shattered son and began the process of helping him want to live again. [They] extended the same love, support and education to our family, and we are now finally moving forward with hope. There is no doubt that Paradigm saved our son and our family.” – Bob Walden, a Trust Pilot Review
