Addiction Treatment at
Banyan Treatment Center Delaware
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.

Our mission, your recovery.
"Banyan Treatment Center was a life-changing experience for me. When I got here, I was planning on continuing to use, but with the help of staff and the community I was convinced to stay through the whole program, and I can honestly say it was the best decision I've ever made."
"My experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff is excellent, they all went way out of their way to help me with whatever I needed. They gave me the tools i needed to succeed, and were always there for me when I completed the program and when I fell short. Thank you so much Banyan!"
"Banyan was able to help me more than words can describe. They helped me save my life. I called in not really knowing what to expect or anything about treatment and the people I spoke with were able to walk me through every step of the way."
