I am glad I was able to overcome my addictions, but I believe it should be simpler for people w/o money or insurance to have the same chance I was able to get. I can't complain, it was not supposed to please me. I was there to learn to live without my ego.
Patient was still an inmate of DOJ so state paid for program. I provided emotional and religious support.
Banyan changed my life! I went through 2phases PHP and IOP. I have been to others programs in the past and by far this facility was very successful and got me outta the nightmare I was living. The program is what u make of it but u need to be willing to change and surrender and fight to live life. I made alot of life long friends in this program not only with other clients but with staff also. Everyone was so helpful and informative, and I did everything in my power to help anyone in anyway I could. The staff was absolutely amazing everyone of them. I\'m involved in alumni and it\'s amazing I come back for meetings and functions as much as possible. THANK YOU to Banyan and all the staff u saved my life! Especially two individuals in particular for reaching out to me to stay in touch and show love.

For example, are you addicted to alcohol or a sedative, like Xanax or Ativan? If so, you may want to enter a medical detox program before enrolling in rehab. The amount of time spent in medical detox will depend on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms, the specific substance of abuse, and the underlying health of the patient. People spend anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks in medical detox before transitioning to inpatient rehab.

During rehab, the treatment team will create an individualized treatment plan for you that will consist of several different types of interventions, such as:
