About Our Center

At Paradigm Malibu, we are dedicated to identifying, understanding and properly treating the core issues that impact adolescents and their families. Rather than merely containing or shaping behaviors, our staff of Mental Health professionals, is committed to assisting young people by addressing the deeper, more difficult issues that impact their lives. These issues range from trauma, grief and school problems to diagnosis such as teen bipolar disorder, teen borderline personality disorder, teen eating disorder, and contemporary challenges such as teen gaming and social media addictions. 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 that they need help with. Those issues may include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, substance abuse, addiction, eating disorders and any number of behavioral and mental health concerns.
