Banyan Pompano Clinical Staff

Banyan Offers a 8:1 Client to Staff Ratio

At Banyan Treatment Center we believe community is essential for a successful life in recovery.

In order to provide our clients with the highest standards of care, we value in the benefits of having a low client to staff ratio.

A low client to staff ratio ensures that all of our clients are getting the attention that is needed by their primary therapist. This allows clients to establish a close relationship with their therapist. Aside from one-on-one counseling, clients attend caseload group in an intimate setting where group members support and learn from each other through their recovery process.

At Banyan Treatment Center we know that by using the strength of those around us, we can grow stronger ourselves.
