Step Beyond is a transitional living program designed for young men ages 17 to 24 who are transitioning from a treatment program, boarding school or home to independent living. They may be struggling with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities or Asperger's, have graduated from high school or are pursuing their GED, and need extra support in their transition. Completion of the program generally takes six to eight months to complete, depending on the individual.

Programming is based on a four-step level system, with increased responsibilities and freedoms as the student moves up in levels. The young men at Step Beyond are required to either be enrolled in college or trade school full time, apply for a full time job or go to school part time while maintaining a part time job. Utah Valley State College and the Mountainland Applied Technology College (MATC) are both within walking distance of the transitional living center.

The young men meet weekly with the program's therapist, Daniel Dayton, and attend therapeutic groups with a focus on relapse prevention. Live-in staff presents living skills courses, which include cooking classes and grocery shopping, time management and scheduling, and basic chores for maintaining a clean home.

Students are encouraged to participate and be involved in the community, either by joining a sports team, church group or hobby group.
