About Paradigm Teen Austin
For 12 years, Paradigm Treatment has been providing residential treatment for teens 13-17 with mental health issues. Their medical and clinical teams delve deep to address the root causes of the struggles young people face in today’s stress-filled world. They work closely with youth and their families, treating anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, mood and personality disorders. Paradigm’s academic coordinators address academic issues so that students can resume studies after treatment while experiential approaches such as yoga, meditation, and equine therapy empower clients to transform their lives. Paradigm works with most commercial insurance and is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Paradigm’s Austin, TX location offers a resort-like atmosphere for teens, all while providing the top notch clinical and therapeutic treatment they need to recover. With only 12 clients in treatment at a time, care at Paradigm Austin is wholly intimate and personal, offering a space for reflection and healing. Paradigm’s mission is to get to the root cause of mental health disorders, first beginning with thorough psychological, physical, and nutritional assessments. The staff at Paradigm Treatment in Austin are both accredited and dedicated, walking teens through mental disorders with a caring, compassionate, and professional hand.
Paradigm Treatment notably provides 4 individual therapy sessions per week, plus regular group and family sessions. Their 30-90-day program gives clients ample time to heal before returning to life outside of residential treatment. To combine and balance clinical treatment with experiential modalities, Paradigm also offers plentiful on and off-site activities, like swimming, horseback riding, physical fitness and much more.

Paradigm Austin uses multiple treatment pathways to find the right blend for each adolescent. Experiential therapies, evidence-based care, and medication-assisted therapy, as appropriate, cater to the needs of each teen. Psychoeducation also plays a large role, in both the treatment of teens and their families. With a diverse range of treatments, Paradigm can help each teen and their families heal long term.
Teens receive treatment along with 11 others, with treatment sizes maxing out at 12. The center’s small size helps treatment feel and stay individualized, with client-to-staff ratios allowing teens and their families to get the personal attention they need to heal and recover. Paradigm Austin’s location makes for an even more intimate experience, separated from outside triggers and busyness.
Paradigm Austin understands the need for families to heal alongside their teens. They offer psychoeducation, family therapy sessions, and weekly family visits to keep families involved in their teens’ treatment. Paradigm’s goal is to help heal the entire family unit, believing that goal can make healing last–even as teens return to life outside treatment and continue to move forward in life.
Paradigm Austin collaborates with outside providers, aiming to help teens remain as comfortable as possible. Paradigm can coordinate with an existing mental health care provider that a teen may already be seeing. This extends to schooling, with Paradigm collaborating with schools and teachers to help ensure kids stay on track.

We lost one of our sons to suicide, which nearly destroyed his twin brother and our family. The loving and knowledgeable staff at Paradigm 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.
