We are experts at caring for teens struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. After a thorough diagnostic assessment, we will recommend an evidence-based course of treatment designed around your child to help your family heal, communicate, and move forward. Medication, multimodal therapies, and community support are some of the valuable resources we offer on the journey to recovery.

Assessment & Diagnosis
Maybe you’ve noticed changes in your adolescent, or they’ve expressed feelings of hopelessness or anxiety. If you’re looking for answers, as a first step in your teen’s treatment, our trained therapists conduct a thorough mental healthcare diagnostic assessment consultation. The assessment will determine what level of care is appropriate for your child and inform our treatment teams of the specific needs for your child. We are a Joint Commission Accredited mental healthcare provider and use evidence-based assessment tools to diagnose your child’s mental healthcare conditions. The assessment usually lasts an hour and a half and is conducted in person or virtually. Following the appointment, you child will be enrolled into one of our group therapy tracks or be referred to alternate provider.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Our comprehensive PHP programming and our evidence-based therapies help to address the complex conditions our patients live with. Some of the services we provide include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Experiential therapy
- Additional specialized services if needed
We discovered that regular, prolonged treatment has long-term effects and puts your teen on track to self-manage their problem with new coping skills. Starting a PHP represents a commitment to a lasting recovery at a time in young people’s lives when actions are flexible and adaptable. You can count on your teenager to make significant progress in a short period of time. We also anticipate that our patients will participate actively in group discussion by listening attentively and contributing to others’ ideas.
PHP programming consists of academic services that are coordinated with your teenager’s school in order to maintain wellness and provide support during their return transition back into the school environment.
In our PHP program, which is a comprehensive mental health treatment program that lasts six hours each day, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., your teen may get additional family support in the form of weekly phone conversations to inform you on his or her development and family sessions. Our PHP program includes 25 hours of group therapy, one hour of individual therapy, and one to two meetings with a nurse practitioner each week.
PHP treatment usually occurs over the course of six to eight weeks. This time may be shorter or longer depending on your teen’s progress in therapy. Each week, they will meet with a therapist and have their medication managed by a specialist. At Beyond Healthcare, we closely monitor whether patients are meeting the benchmarks set at the beginning of therapy and keep parents updated about any changes in their teen’s condition.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
After-school IOP sessions take place three days a week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) for three hours each session (4 p.m.- 7 p.m.). IOP groups usually include eight to twelve teens and are organized by age. IOP programming—which includes additional mental health support with school, therapy sessions as needed, and medication management if necessary—is meant to help your teenager manage their studies alongside friendships, family commitments, sports activities, and other responsibilities.
Our IOP usually lasts for approximately six to eight weeks, but it can depend on how quickly your teen progresses. IOP is often a less intensive level of care than PHP, and we will frequently monitor your teen’s progress toward their goals, updating you as we go. At Beyond Healthcare, in addition to attending IOP sessions, your teen also has the opportunity to receive individual therapy services and medication management. Families participate in family therapy sessions during IOP so they can improve communication and resolve common problems together.
If medication is right for your adolescent, we’ll work to develop a treatment plan you are comfortable with that is in line with best practices for medication administration. Deciding to give your adolescent medication can be complicated, which is why our team will take time to explain the benefits and risks of each medication and give you time to make the right decision for your family.
In addition, we provide support and resources for parents who are struggling with their mental health and who would benefit from medication. Our goal is to help everyone in our care heal and make informed decisions.
During the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, we want to give parents the options for treatment that will work best for their family. If virtual counseling sessions are right for you, we’ll help you access care from wherever you are. Virtual therapy may include IOP, medication management, or individual therapy.
Family Involvement, Education, and Treatment
We believe that family involvement is key to helping adolescents heal. To help parents learn how to best support their adolescent, we offer family treatment, coaching, and education. In addition, we’ll connect you with other families who are navigating behavioral health challenges. Community connection can offer the support you need while in treatment.

Who do you serve?
We serve adolescents 11-17 and their families.
Are your programs only for people with mental health concerns?
We are here to serve the adolescents and families in our community who are struggling with a variety of concerns. Sometimes adolescents or adults just need a little extra support due to family transitions or behavior problems. Sometimes they need support due to an actual mental health concern or a suspected mental health diagnosis. Because we offer a wide variety of programs, we can help you determine what is best for you and your family through a thorough assessment process.
How do I know what kind of treatment I need, or my adolescent needs?
Our clinical staff will help you determine what type of treatment options would be suitable for you or your adolescent. As always, the type of treatment you select is completely up to you and your family. We are here to help inform you about the options available, provide support during your journey, and to help you access care.
Can I get counseling while my adolescent is also getting help?
Absolutely! We believe that for adolescents to heal, the family must heal as well.
When are our business and clinical hours?
Monday – Thursday – 9 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.
Friday – 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
We have evening availability Monday – Thursday until 8 p.m. by appointment
What are the benefits of PHP and IOP group therapy?
Beyond Healthcare offers PHP and IOP. These are group-based therapy programs led by a licensed therapist designed to treat individuals who are struggling with debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, self-harm, ADHD and other mental disorders that interfere with success at school, with friends, and with family.
Teens benefit from the peer-to-peer interactions that reinforce that they are not alone in their struggles. Group therapy provides peer support and fosters a level of engagement beyond what can be achieved in individual outpatient therapy.
What conditions do you treat in your partial hospitalization program?
We treat adolescents who have a mental health condition that interferes with their daily living. Many of our clients struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, self-harm, and other mental disorders.
What is an intensive outpatient program (IOP)?
An IOP is a therapeutic program that takes place in a group setting. Your adolescent or teen will be in a group with others who are of similar age and life situation. These groups are uniquely designed to help reduce symptoms associated with a mental health concern.
Do you offer medication management?
We believe that there are many pathways to recovery, and medication can be a powerful healer for many adolescents and adults. We also believe that many people can heal through therapy in a supportive environment, without the use of medication. We will support each parent in making the decision that is best for their adolescent after a thorough diagnostic assessment is completed.
What is your Community Connections program?
We believe that isolation and lack of support have led to an increase in mental health concerns, especially in adolescents and teens. To heal, we all need support and encouragement along the way. Parents who are struggling with an adolescent who is having challenges also need support to be the best person they can be for themselves and their adolescent. We don’t want anyone to ever feel alone, and our Community Connections program is all about making sure that doesn’t happen. Whatever you are going through, you or your adolescent will have the support from staff, other kids, and other parents that you need to be successful and supported.
How long are adolescents and families typically in treatment?
Our program length is determined by each individual treatment plan. Some adolescents or parents may find that long-term support is what they need to be successful, while others may have a specific situation they are working through and aren’t looking for a long-term solution. We are here to help you and your family for as long as you need us to be there.
How do I pay for your program?
We are in network with all Ohio Medicaid plans and are an OHIO RISE provider. We are in-network with most commercial plans including: Aetna, Anthem BCBS, Cigna/Evernorth, Humana, Medical Mutual, Paramount, and United/Optum.
