Who We Treat

Mental Health Treatment for Teens and Young Adults 12-26

Paradigm Treatment serves teens and young adults age 12-26 who are struggling with a variety of mental health issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, self-harm, suicidality, dual diagnoses and anger management issues. Some clients entering our program may not have had any interactions with mental health professionals before, while others may have already exhausted a variety of other treatment attempts such as wilderness programs, weekly individual therapy, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs), group therapy, family therapy, regular school counseling or hospitalizations.

Our clients come from diverse backgrounds and geographical locations, and we recognize the intersecting identities of all our clients, understanding that adolescence and young adulthood are incredibly profound and impactful moments in anyone’s life. Despite the dynamism of their differences, all our clients seem to share an acute need for heightened care in a safe, nurturing and efficacious environment. 

We often say that at Paradigm we treat the bullied as opposed to the bullies, and that our program is built on the cornerstones of safety, reliability, efficacy and trust. Our clients could be struggling with school or they may be at the top of their class. They could have incredible musical talent and robust social circles, or they may not have left their bedrooms in months. Because we carefully tailor our treatment protocols to suit each and every client’s unique mental health needs, and although no two clients are the same, all our clients receive nothing BUT exceptional, effective care in our program.

To be struggling with mental health issues at times when the pressures of life can already feel insurmountable is deeply challenging and difficult for many young adults and teens. We recognize just how hard this can be not only on our clients, but their families as well. As such, we consider the families of our clients at Paradigm to be a vital component of the treatment process and by extension our program as a whole. It is for this reason that we engage the families of our clients in individual and multi-family therapy sessions, and provide extensive education for parents as well, to assist them for when their child returns home.
