Our Drug Rehab Staff Understands Your Struggles

When it comes to treating addiction, patients need rehab professionals in Wilmington who understand where they have been. Several members of our Banyan Massachusetts rehab staff have been through addiction themselves. They have gone through all the struggles of recovery, so they understand where you’re coming from. Whether you’re participating in our residential programs, intensive outpatient programs, or partial hospitalization programs in Boston, you can rest assured that our entire team is here to support your recovery.

While not all members of our team have struggled with and overcome addiction or alcoholism, there are team members who know how tough it is to work through recovery. They have been there themselves, working through detox and the steps of sobriety. This gives them compassion for your struggles and a true perspective that can help you heal from addiction.
