Teen Intensive Outpatient Program
Ohio State Behavioral Health is now accepting referrals to its Teen Intensive Outpatient Program. This program is for youth, ages 13-18, who are having difficulty managing the symptoms of their mental illness at home, school or in their community. It is designed to treat patients more aggressively in an outpatient group therapy setting as a step-down from inpatient care or a step-up from weekly outpatient sessions that are not effectively addressing symptoms. Afternoon and evening sessions are available.
