ABOUT BANYAN TREATMENT CENTER - NAPERVILLE
Banyan Treatment Center is a fast-growing network of rehabs, with ten locations around the United States, including several centers in Florida and an outpatient facility in Massachusetts. The facility in the Chicago suburb of Naperville provides outpatient care at several intensities for individuals struggling with substance misuse or a dual diagnosis. Medical detox is not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Banyan draws on both 12-step principles and evidence-based treatment methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Therapy is provided in individual, group, and family settings, and psychiatric and medical care are also available as needed, including ongoing medication management for those struggling with co-occurring mental health concerns.
Upon admission, clients participate in a substance use assessment to determine the most appropriate level of care. The most intensive program available is the partial hospitalization program (PHP, offered at 14.2 percent of Illinois-based facilities), which includes at least 25 hours per week of programming and is appropriate for those who require structure but not necessarily 24-hour monitoring.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP, offered at 65.7 percent of Illinois-based facilities) is offered as either a step-down from the PHP or entry-level care. The program offers a minimum of nine hours of treatment per week, and focuses in particular on relapse prevention and teaching clients coping methods for the challenges they'll face in sobriety. IOP care is provided up to five days per week and customized to suit the individual client's needs.
The traditional outpatient program, which may be utilized as a form of aftercare, requires attendance for at least 90 minutes a week, and sessions are available every day. Once clients have completed treatment, they graduate to the alumni program, which gives them access to the network of alumni who have graduated from Banyan's centers.
