Southern California Teen Residential Treatment

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Oppositional defiant disorder describes an ongoing pattern of hostile and defiant behavior towards parents, guardians, and other authority figures. This behavior can range from annoying and uncooperative to extremely hostile and defiant. This behavior will often interrupt the everyday activities of the adolescent or teen, including at school and within the family. Often, adolescents and teens dealing with oppositional defiant disorder will be moody, have low self-esteem and be easily frustrated. If your teen or adolescent is experiencing symptoms of oppositional defiant disorder, it is important to get professional help. Without treatment, adolescents with oppositional defiant disorder may experience other issues with others at school. It may be hard to initially see the difference between strong-willed and emotional behavior versus oppositional defiant disorder. Symptoms usually begin gradually and become more pronounced over time. With treatment, your teen or adolescent can become more self-confident and you can build a positive relationship with your teen or adolescent. Our treatment program closely involves family in the treatment process and is the only residential treatment center for teens with mental health disorders in Southern California. Research has shown that family involvement in treatment is a critical factor in successful treatment outcomes.

Our program provides a therapeutic environment where teens and adolescents can experience real emotional and behavioral growth.
