The supportive nature of our IOP setting will give your child the space and strength to work through the complex challenges they face.

The Benefits of Beyond’s IOP for Teens and Adolescents in Ohio

In IOP, your child will be embraced just as they are, giving them the courage to face their challenges and break free from limiting habits and beliefs. This holistic program uses a combination of evidence-based therapy methods and treatments to provide the most comprehensive support in a fun and safe group setting.

Our IOP model is held after school for three hours, three days a week, allowing teens, adolescents and their families to continue living their day-to-day lives while receiving the support they need. This option gives teens and families the opportunity to integrate treatment strategies into their daily lives while still working through the program.

Whether you’ve tried other programs with little progress, or simply know your child needs more intensive therapeutic part-day treatment, you can rest assured that Beyond’s IOP helps yield long-lasting results. Our balanced approach of combining intensive treatment with a fun and cheerful environment allows teens to feel safe to receive healing.

We aim to support your child’s mental health and help them manage their social relationships, family duties, school, and other responsibilities. Through a personalized combination of evidence-based treatment, they’ll gain important life skills and will learn to manage their condition by developing positive coping skills.

Our group therapy setting allows teens and adolescents to feel seen and understood by peers who share similar experiences, helping them to feel safe enough to develop strong and lasting bonds and gain confidence in their social skills. Through regular group engagement, teens and adolescents will develop the self-esteem to form stronger relationships.

When your child is more balanced and confident in themselves and their capabilities, they’re more likely to thrive in the school setting. Our IOP program allows them to receive treatment directly after school so they can work through any challenges that arise with our friendly behavioral health experts and receive the support they need to excel.

Like all of our programs and services, our IOP for teens and adolescents focuses on holistic healing. As such, receiving treatment at Beyond Healthcare means your child will be embraced for who they are, as they are; not only by their peers and our expert team, but they’ll also learn the tools and strategies that allow them to discover belonging within themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Day treatment, or IOP, is a form of therapy that runs after school three days per week for three hours per session within a group setting. These programs can include mental health support, therapy sessions as needed, and medication management, depending on your Beyond location. The group settings are designed to help lessen the feelings of isolation and alienation that often come with mental health concerns. Your child will learn to control their emotions and increase self-esteem with the help of our cheerful clinical therapists.

Our part-day intensive outpatient program helps treat a range of mental health conditions in teens, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • ADHD
  • Physical, sexual, or emotional trauma
  • Family transitions (i.e., moving or divorce)
  • Grief and loss
  • LGBTQ+ challenges
  • Relationship problems


If your child struggles with moderate mental health symptoms but doesn’t self-harm or have suicidal tendencies, our IOP may be a good fit. (For those who do experience self-harm or suicidal tendencies, see our teen PHP.)

In a teen and adolescent IOP, patients receive vital mental health support a few times per week while still being able to live their normal day-to-day lives. If you’re unsure if IOP is right for you, our friendly clinical staff will gladly help you determine which treatment option would be most suitable for you and your child.

Absolutely! We believe that for teens and adolescents to heal, the family must heal as well. We gladly offer counseling, education, and ample tools and resources for family members.

The length of the program is dependent on the needs of each individual. While some families may find that long-term support is beneficial, others may prefer shorter treatment options.

However, our intensive outpatient programs (IOP) typically last between six to eight weeks. Ultimately, we’re here to support you and your family as long as you need.

The process of healing is as individual as the person receiving it. Because of this, how quickly you’ll begin to see results from treatment will vary from person-to-person. While some may see a noticeable difference within weeks, for other it might take months. We honor each client’s pace and work with their needs and comfort levels to ensure the most supportive therapeutic treatment and increase likelihood of success.

Yes, we believe financial constraints should never hinder teens and adolescents from receiving vital mental health care. As such, we are in-network with all major Ohio commercial insurance and Medicaid plans.
