Banyan Treatment Center Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
- Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Easily the best treatment center I have ever been to, and I have been to quite a few. I will forever owe Banyan for saving my life. They taught me not only how to get clean, but most importantly, they taught me how to stay clean. The therapists and the rest of the staff are some of the best I've ever encountered and they genuinely care about you and your health. They were able to discover and point out things in myself that I was never able to recognize on my own. My therapist also worked with my family (with my permission) to help mend some relationships that I harmed and even took time to discuss ways in which they could start to heal some of the scars that I left behind. I can confidently say that Banyan did everything they possibly could to save my life and they were successful in their attempt. They never gave up on me, and as hopeless as I felt about myself, they were able to remove me from this state of mind and now (4 months later) I have never been so excited and happy about where my life is today.George D.
Quite possibly the greatest experience of my life, because this place saved my life. From intake to release they couldn't have been more professional and courteous. I've been to some other places that tended to treat their clients as statistics, but the level of genuine and personal care I received at Banyan was heartwarming and life saving. The entire staff was overwhelming supportive and I look forward to their alumni events. Thank you Banyan!Joseph C.
