Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery is a virtual reality (VR) program in which individuals at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities can feel as though they’re actually face-to-face with Dr. Phil.


Banyan Treatment Centers is proud to announce its partnership with Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery program, an innovative evidence-based virtual reality (VR) program.

It is our honor to collaborate with Dr. Phil and his team, in the fight against addiction, as we continue to provide the most groundbreaking treatment resources to our patients.

Dr. Phil McGraw, and son, Jay McGraw created the Path to Recovery program with both inpatient and outpatient rehab facilities in mind. Dr. Phil’s 45 years of experience in the mental health and addiction field, in conjunction with Jay’s passion for helping those who suffer from substance use disorders, brings about a unique approach to the treatment process.

While not intended to act as a stand-alone service, Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery is meant to complement existing therapeutic practices. As an enhancement to our nationwide drug and alcohol programs, this approach will bridge the gap between residential care and everyday living.

How the Program Works

The Path to Recovery virtual reality (VR) program consists of two main components. First, patients engage in a face-to-face virtual reality therapy session with Dr. Phil, where they will address the root causes of their addiction, along with potential triggers of substance use. The goal for each individual is to identify ways in which they can achieve the healthy and happy life they truly desire.

The second component of the program utilizes an in-depth workbook, delving deeper into each patient’s specific way of thinking and problem areas within their life. Projects completed in the workbook will then be addressed with primary counselors, creating healthier coping skills and new tools needed for lasting recovery.

While the field of virtual reality (VR) continues to flourish and evolve, Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery program employs the most effective technology available today. Their user-friendly headsets afford patients the most realistic experience possible, ensuring the highest quality of virtual reality services are delivered. As technology progresses, the program will continue to use only the best products available.
