Banyan Treatment Center Review
With locations in Pompano Beach and Stewart, Florida, as well as in Chicago and Boston, Banyan Treatment Center provides a variety of addition treatment options. These include detox, an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and gender-specific sober living for those in treatment. The Illinois center also provides housing for men only at this time.
The belief at Banyan Treatment Center is that not one-size-fits all and this is evident by their recovery protocols. Not only do they offer a traditional 12-step treatment track, but there is a Christian track for those seeking a faith-based approach. Clients seeking an alternative to the 12 steps are offered a SMART Recovery curriculum and for Buddhists, there is a mindfulness curriculum based on Refuge Recovery.

Banyan Treatment Center at Pompano is the company headquarters and largest clinical facility. All of the residences are in close proximity to the treatment facility. Clients are generally accommodated in gender-specific, two bedroom apartments. There are no more than four residents per apartment. PHP and IOP clients reside in different housing complexes because PHP clients require a higher level of care and supervision.
