Mental Health Programs
Mental Health Programs at Banyan Treatment Center effectively treat patients diagnosed with mood and thought disorders. Our licensed clinicians and highly trained staff members utilize a wide scope of methods to provide truly customized care. We work with patients every step of the way to ensure each individual gains as much benefit as possible from our programs. We are fully committed to the safety and well-being of each patient that comes through our doors.
Mental Health Residential Program
At the residential level of care, patients live at our facility while receiving full-time therapeutic treatment. This is a higher level of care than our Partial Hospitalization Program, where patients live off-site. Residential programming takes place a minimum of 6-8 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. While in the Banyan Mental Health Residential Program patients remain under care and supervision 24-hours a day, with access to doctors, nurses, therapists, and mental health technicians. It is here that they will undergo a thorough clinical assessment to aid in proper diagnoses and medication evaluation, to ensure that they are adequately stabilized before transitioning to a lower level of care, such as our PHP program. Should a patient require medically monitored detox resulting from a substance abuse problem, they will enter residential care after detox has been completed. Patients undergo regular psychiatric evaluation, group and individual therapy sessions, and have the opportunity to participate in various ancillary, holistic treatment options while in the Banyan Mental Health Residential Program in Boca Raton, Florida.
Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program
Unlike residential or inpatient treatment, where patients live at the facility while receiving care, Banyan’s Partial Hospitalization Program offers a more relaxed environment that still features full-time therapeutic programming. PHP is often utilized as a step-down level of care after a patient has completed residential programming, but can also serve as a direct admission for those evaluated to meet the necessary clinical and medical criteria.
Banyan’s Mental Health PHP program features 8 hours of programming a day, with the opportunity for patients to participate in supervised recreation activities at night and on the weekends. Patients are transported back and forth from the facility, where they are able to build life skills in a home-like environment featuring apartment-style living. Throughout their stay at PHP, patients remain under 24-hour care and supervision by highly trained support specialists who are available to assist them with their daily needs and ensure the safety and well-being of each individual.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program provides patients with medication evaluation and management through regular evaluations by our board certified Psychiatrist. Each patient is assigned a primary therapist, from whom they will receive individual counseling sessions on a weekly basis. Other aspects of the program include group therapy, gender-specific groups, and ancillary, holistic treatment options including art therapy, yoga & meditation, biofeedback, and chiropractic services. Patients’ therapeutic counseling addresses a variety of issues. These include financial hardship and unemployment, the inability to immerse themselves in social settings and maintain healthy relationships, poor hygiene and lack of ability to complete activities of daily living such as bathing, feeding, grooming, homemaking, etc. Banyan’s staff provides patients with education and resources, enabling them to successfully participate in these daily routines.
Many patients struggling with a primary mental health diagnosis are also diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Our program is designed to address dual-diagnoses, with full support for those who are also suffering from addiction related issues.
Patient support continues well after discharge from our programs. Banyan’s team of licensed professionals help develop aftercare plans for each patient. This enables patients to continue receiving care as they transition back to everyday life, following the completion of treatment. Aftercare plans may include safe housing arrangements, community support groups, and continued outpatient treatment with a provider who specializes in a patient’s individual diagnosis. Banyan works with more than 1,000 providers nationwide, ensuring proper placement for each patient upon discharge from our facility.
