Paradigm Malibu proudly announces their range of services, including drug rehabilitation treatment, mental health help, Internet and gaming addiction programs and programs for teens who like to self harm. Teens face many challenges on a daily basis and parents often find they need help in overcoming these challenges. "Paradigm Malibu strives to help parents obtain help for their children, and offer a wide variety of programs to meet every need," Cole Rucker of Paradigm Malibu declares.
According to Psychology Today, seven percent of middle school students, 15 percent of high school students and approximately 33 percent of all adolescents engage in teen self injury. Cutting appears to be the most common behavior. although hitting and burning along with many other behaviors have been identified as means of teen self injury. Females tend to engage in this behavior, which occurs covertly in most cases, and use the self injury to relieve emotional distress which is extreme. "Parents, when they discover their child is engaging in this type of behavior, frequently panic as they don't know where to turn and this is where Paradigm Malibu can be of great help," Rucker explains.
Bipolar disorder, according to WebMD, typically appears between the ages of 15 and 30 and is more common in teens with a family history of this medical condition. Sadly, many parents associate the symptoms of bipolar disorder with normal teenage behavior as symptoms include severe changes in mood and distractability during the manic phase, and irritability and complaints of boredom during the depressive phase. "If you suspect your child is suffering from more than normal teenage angst, seek the help of a medical professional as your child may be suffering from teen bipolar disorder. With the proper help, teens can manage their symptoms and live a full life," Rucker goes on to say.
Parents regularly find their child is more knowledgeable about technology than they are and this can lead to issues. According to The Telegraph, a British newspaper, teens spend an average of 31 hours on the Internet each week. This is an average, yet some teens spend a great deal more time surfing the web, rather than communicating with others face to face. "If you feel your teen spends too much time on the computer, you may need to look into a teen internet addiction program to get them back on track and connecting with others face to face," Rucker continues.
Paradigm Malibu understands the challenges parents face when trying to raise children in today's world. "Parents often find they are unfamiliar with what their child is doing on a daily basis and, when a problem arises, the parents don't know where to turn. We can be of great assistance as we offer a wide range of programs for children with mental health issues, addictions of many types and teens who choose to self injure. Contact us today and we will discuss treatment for your child and his or her individual problems as we want to help you care for your child," Rucker encourages.
