The banyan tree is one of the most beautiful and iconic trees in the South Florida landscape. This tree provides a great metaphor for what our community looks like at Banyan. Without support of other trees, the banyan becomes exposed and weak, never reaching its full potential. However, with the help of the trees around it, the banyan can thrive for hundreds of years.
Community and collaboration are the core principles of treatment at Banyan Treatment Center and Detox. When we use the strength of those around us, we can grow stronger ourselves. At Banyan, we know that each individual has different struggles and every journey to recovery is unique. We tailor our treatment plans to be truly customized for each specific situation. Our therapeutic methods at our addiction treatment center empower clients to make meaningful changes in their own lives and the lives of those around them.
The Banyan Difference
We are a family of individuals that come from diverse backgrounds; however addiction affects all of us in the same way. It devastates lives and families. We came together with a simple mission: to help people break free from the bonds of addiction. We are not a “one fits all place” and we have the experienced staff and infrastructure to truly offer individualized, custom treatment programs that are tailored to fit every need. Not many addiction treatment centers have the ability to offer all levels of care and custom treatment plans.
All of our therapists are masters-level and our clinical staff is equipped to handle all cases of alcohol and substance use disorders from mild to severe. Each of our five facilities has a Medical Director and they are available 24-7.
The Banyan Philosophy
Banyan’s clinical approach to treatment is to address our patients’ substance use disorder alongside any co-occurring mental health disorders and life issues in an integrative, multi-disciplinary fashion. Treatment planning is designed to meet all of our patients’ needs and treatment is delivered as a team, which includes assessors, therapists, case managers, doctors/nurses, and other support staff. In conjunction with the 12 Step model (and alternatively, Smart Recovery, which all of our therapists are certified), our therapists utilize the following therapeutic approaches in their group and 1:1 work with our patients: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), client-centered/humanistic interventions, empowerment counseling, and solution-focused counseling.
