Banyan Treatment Centers believes that substance abuse cannot be treated with a “one-size-fits-all” method. The impact of addiction is boundless, affecting people from all walks of life and social classes. As such, treatment approaches must be tailored to fit the specific needs of the suffering person, addressing unhealthy behaviors that influence substance abuse and cultivating lasting solutions that encourage change. This is why each of our Banyan locations offers a variety of ancillary services and treatment programs that aim to effectively tackle the patient’s condition and teach them more healthy behaviors moving forward.  

Types of Clinical Therapy   

The effects caused by a substance use disorder and the underlying issues surrounding the disease are unique for each individual. Therefore, the masters-level clinicians at Banyan utilize several therapeutic modalities during the course of treatment, ensuring the highest quality of care is delivered to our patients. Some of the various clinical approaches included in our services include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Grief Therapy, and more. These methods are used in conjunction with a 12-step philosophy or, alternatively, SMART Recovery. 

Alongside traditional forms of behavioral health treatment, our nationwide alcohol and drug rehab center provides various holistic therapies, affording Banyan patients an exclusive treatment experience. These ancillary services have proven to benefit the suffering individual in a number of ways, looking beyond the symptoms of addiction and improving the patient’s overall quality of life. 

Holistic Therapies We Provide  

We recognize that substance use and co-occurring disorders are merely a symptom of a much more significant issue. Banyan Treatment Centers prides itself on offering individualized treatment services which focus on the complexity of this disease and offer solutions that foster sustained recovery. Some of the various holistic therapies we have found to be influential in our patient’s treatment and recovery journeys include: 

Reiki Therapy 

Commonly referred to as “energy healing,” this holistic treatment is known to reduce pain, enable relaxation, relieve emotional stress, and aid in the relief of other physical symptoms due to illness. Reiki benefits the participants by targeting energy fields around the body, helping the flow of energy and removing blocked energy, similar to acupuncture. This calming practice has risen in mainstream popularity over the past few years and is renowned for its uses as an ancillary service for people suffering from a variety of physical and mental illnesses aside from just addiction. 

Massage & Acupuncture 

Although scientific research surrounding the topic is still relatively scarce, utilizing acupuncture for addiction has been practiced since the 1970s, when a Chinese physician by the name of Dr. H. L. Wen found it to help relieve withdrawal symptoms experienced from opioid addiction. Offered at several of our locations, patients can take advantage of massage therapy and acupuncture during their treatment stay. Many Banyan patients have found these holistic therapies to be beneficial throughout their rehab experience, aiding in both withdrawal symptoms and emotional stress.  

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) 

A scientifically proven efficacious treatment, EMDR therapy enables individuals to heal from traumatic events and/or emotional turmoil, which is the result of disturbing life experiences. Alongside PTSD and other trauma-based diagnoses, this practice has shown to be extremely beneficial for substance abuse and mental health patients. In this eight-phase treatment, EMDR therapists assist patients in activating their natural healing processes within the mind by utilizing a combination of protocols, therapeutic elements, and eye movements. 

Music & Art Therapy 

Both art and music therapy have been shown to assist in the treatment and recovery experience. Individuals who suffer from addiction can utilize these therapeutic approaches to express their emotions in a healthy way, where they have otherwise been unable to. 

Our treatment team utilizes these modalities in an effort to continuously provide patients with every possible strategy for healing. Art and music therapy have been proven to help reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, and foster creativity and motivation. We also hope that you can leave our facilities with a new hobby of two.  

In addition to these ancillary programs, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, a proud addition to the Banyan Family, also offers music production therapy. 


An innovative treatment approach, biofeedback, is now offered at every Banyan location nationwide. By inducing a meditative state through vibration, guided imagery, and music therapy, biofeedback addresses underlying issues of anxiety, depression, and trauma. This therapeutic modality has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate painful withdrawal symptoms, and overcome negative thoughts and feelings surrounding traumatic life events. 


Yoga plays an influential role in the recovery process, as it addresses addiction as a three-fold disease. Alongside the many physical health benefits, yoga brings balance to the individual’s life on a mental and spiritual level. Through the consistent practice of yoga, patients experience increased energy, improved cardio and respiratory health, increased physical strength, mental clarity, decreased stress and anxiety, and improved coping skills.
