Teens Struggling With Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD)
At Clearview, we treat girls with Oppositional Defiance Disorder or ODD. ODD in girls usually exhibits challenging behaviors in their teen years, including constantly disobeying parents and, to put it simply, basically being stuck in a nasty, defiant mood when around anyone in authority.
While many teens, especially girls, can exhibit some of these characteristics at various times, if your daughter remains excessively defiant, intentionally disruptive, vindictive, visibly angry all the time, and blames everyone else for her behavior, she may have ODD.
Clearview is the Ideal Clinical Setting to Help ODD in Girls
Left untreated, ODD is an exasperating condition, both for you and your daughter. It is important to identify this disorder properly to ensure that her behaviors do not further worsen or extend into adulthood, possibly leading to legal troubles, school expulsion, or violent or self-destructive behaviors.
In addition to typically co-existing with other treatable issues and conditions like ADD, ADHD, or depression, ODD can be a precursor to other, more severe problems such as acute delinquency and conduct disorder. It is most important to get to the root causes of the disorder so that it can be treated properly and the girl can be given the proper tools to recognize her behaviors.
