Mental Health Programs for Struggling Young Adults and Teens (Ages 12-26)

Who We Treat

Paradigm Treatment serves teens and young adults from ages 12-26 who struggle with mental health issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, self-harm, suicidality, dual diagnoses, and anger management issues.

We realize that some of the young clients who enter 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. So we offer a variety of programs for teens and young adults struggling with mental health challenges.

Our programs include wilderness therapy, weekly individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, regular school counseling, and hospitalizations. We also offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and a residential treatment program. Through our therapeutic approaches, we can help your teen or young adult develop life skills and coping strategies.

About Our Clients

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

At Paradigm, we often say that we treat the bullied as opposed to the bullies, and that our program is built on the cornerstones of safety, reliability, efficacy, and trust. The troubled young adults and teens that need our help may be struggling at 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.

Since 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.

Addressing the Challenges Seen in Teens and Young Adults

Here at our California mental health treatment center for struggling young adults and teens, we offer hope and help to those in need. We understand that young people struggle differently than older people do. We realize the needs young people have generally differ greatly from the needs older individuals have. As such, our facility provides programs for young adults and teens that address their specific needs.

We offer services for teens and young adults suffering from the following challenges:

In addition to drug addiction and the mental health problems listed above, we treat troubled youth suffering from ADHD, anger issues, gender identity challenges, parental alienation, and issues related to divorce or adoption.

Importance of Treatment for Children, Teens, and Young Adults

Struggling young adults and teens need a nurturing environment where they can have access to support and guidance. Our programs for young adults and adolescents are more than just tools to help young people survive. They are programs that are built to help struggling young adults thrive.

A teenager or young adult displaying signs of mental challenges requires the right balance of treatment and therapy to help them improve their daily lives. Such care can increase the possibility of success when it comes to recovery.

Teenage and young adulthood years can be incredibly difficult. Young people encounter challenges such as low self-esteem, social anxiety, difficulty making friends, family problems, and more. Many times, a young person who is dealing with such struggles will find it hard to talk about his or her feelings. Expressing frustration can be difficult and, often, troubled youth end up exhibiting negative behaviors as a result.

When a child or young adult has difficulty addressing the underlying causes of such behavioral issues, they will likely only begin to feel worse. But, with the help of a professional teen and young adult treatment program, individuals can receive the support they need.

Young meant and women who struggle with mental challenges may not know how to talk to their parents or other adults in their lives. But, with the help of therapy, they can achieve success in the world of recovery, which will enable them to live a more mentally healthy life.

How Treatment Can Help

Professional treatment can help a teen or young adult live a happy, healthy, fulfilling life. It can help young individuals develop the confidence they need to keep moving forward. With such confidence, teens and young adults are bound to have a brighter future than they ever thought possible!

Treatment can also help people develop independent living skills and coping skills to use when challenges arise. These life skills will not only improve your child’s chances of successfully completing our treatment program, but they will also help your child or emerging adult thrive in the future!
