Alum L.M. was blunt with their feedback, simply stating “Worst place ever,” and Jess elaborated slightly with “I was fooled by their marketer. This place is trash.” In a more encompassing review, Bert wrote: “They will do everything in their power to make sure you don't leave so they can keep collecting your insurance money,” and added, “If you are serious about getting help do not come to banyan because you will just be pushed off like you don't matter.”
Those who enjoyed their stay mostly attributed it to the “Great and caring staff” and “multiple treatment options.”
