Addiction Treatment at
Changing Lives for the Better
At our Delaware substance abuse treatment center, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our patients. Along with personalized treatment plans and unique therapy programs for a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment, we focus on our patients’ futures.
The goal of our Milford, Delaware addiction treatment center is to not only help people find long-term sobriety, but also, to assist people in leading better lives. Many people come to our alcohol and drug rehab after hitting their rock bottom and spinning out of control. We help people regain control and start rebuilding their lives alongside getting sober. During addiction treatment, we give patients the tools they need to create a foundation for a happier, healthier, and more productive future.
Although addiction can seem like a problem that is too big to solve, there is hope. Getting help at Banyan Delaware is the first step to a better future.

I had a great experience at Banyan in Naperville the staff are awesome there and housing is good we can cook and eat whatever we want which is nice it helped me be accountable and clean up after myself they encourage us to go to meetings and provide a list of meetings and sponsors but don’t force anyone to go which is nice it’s a choice but if you want recovery you will get it no matter where you go you just have to be 100% done with the drugs or drinksMiles J.
