Paradigm’s mental health treatments are based on a holistic approach and implements a combination of the best traditional and experimental approaches in therapy, in both individual and group settings. Before being admitted to Paradigm, every young adult undergoes a thorough psychiatric evaluation, which our team of therapists and other mental health care professionals use, when designing the individual treatment plan.
Each mental health treatment plan is carefully constructed, with a primary goal of providing individualized treatment, according to each person’s specific condition, symptoms, experiences, and interests. Along these lines, it’s worth noting that at Paradigm, we approach therapy according to strengths and other positive attributes, as opposed to their mental disorders and symptoms. This is one way in which we provide therapy that is thorough and precise to the individual, in striving to help young adults toward a real and long-lasting recovery.
We feel uniquely qualified to provide such individualized care, because of the vast number of types of therapy we’re able to offer, provided by our team of therapists and specialists, dedicated to the well-being of young adults.
Mental health issues are a very broad category of illnesses and disorders, and it’s important to note that a warning sign should never be considered a clear indication of a mental health disorder. If you or a loved one is exhibiting any of the symptoms below, get a referral with a mental health specialist and speak to your psychiatrist.
This is a top-notch organization with extremely talented therapists, clean and safe
facilities and a staff that genuinely cares about its patients. Our son was quite honestly a lost cause - or so we thought. He had a dual-diagnosis and was suffering from depression, bi polar disorder and was self medicating with marijuana and pain pills. Now, as a direct result of the people at Paradigm, he is doing so very well. He is clean and sober and is an active participant in his life!

Every young adult’s treatment looks different at Paradigm Malibu, which is something we pride ourselves in. However, there are some fundamental aspects of mental health treatment we provide that are consistent, addressing specific mental illness.
During treatment, every young adult will receive one-on-one therapy, every day they’re here. In addition to these sessions, they will also take part in group therapy sessions, family sessions, and several other types of therapy, depending on what they’re interested in. Some of these special therapy approaches might include things like:
Within therapy sessions, our therapists strive to help young adults address what they’re experiencing, such as symptoms, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, as well as the underlying habits and beliefs that may exist, beneath the surface. Our therapists work to help people to address, evaluate, and in some cases, learn to accept and cope with a mental illness. Then, our therapists teach young adults to become self-aware, learn their habits and triggers, re-establish healthy belief systems, and recognize how their illness affects others close to them. This is only possible when young adults work on things beyond the illness and symptoms, which is what we’re dedicated to helping them do.
