I am still trying to figure out what happened. We called many places to find the “right” fit for our child. Paradigm Malibu promised the world and fell far short of what they said. I should have known that they were not on the up and up when they were so busy slamming other places (that I hadn’t even asked about) and saying how they dont do things like other places as opposed to what they do. The kids seem to work the system (and were really not required to do much at all) and there was a lot of interactions between the kids that didnt seem right. When I spoke to the staff about it, they told me to essentially “mind my own business”. They kept trying to keep my son but didnt seem to have good reasons why. Some people are on insurance and scooted out rather quickly, while we, who paid for it on our own, kept being told he had to stay. Do your research, after we left I found out that they used to have another program under a different name that was known for not taking good care of kids and there was even a suicide attempt at the facility because they didnt have enough staff.They sold the company for a bunch of money and it seems like they are just trying to do that again. We ended up putting our son in an out of state program and he is doing well, it also has its pluses and minuses, but they at least seem to care. .
