Bringing together a highly specialised team, with over a century of clinical experience, The Banyans sets a new standard for integrated residential programs.

The Banyans Health and Wellness is a private treatment centre, in a social enterprise arrangement with our partner charity, Fresh Start. After two decades of providing residential rehabilitation, Fresh Start played a significant role in the launch of The Banyans — contributing to the design of the program.

CEO Ruth Limkin and the directors of The Banyans connected a highly experienced therapeutic team in 2015. Since then, The Banyans team has grown to include over 55 experienced medical, therapeutic and support staff.

The Banyans Health and Wellness opened its doors to guests in May 2016, and has since welcomed many discerning individuals into our purpose-built therapeutic residence. The Banyans has achieved quality accreditation (ISO9001:2015), and is recognised in National Awards Programs, such as Telstra Business Women Awards.

The clinical expertise of The Banyans is quickly becoming recognised, with Clinical Director Peter Hayton and other members of the team presenting at industry conferences and events. These include the Australian and New Zealand Addictions Conference, the National Australian Eating Disorder and Obesity Conference, and the Queensland University of Technology.

The Banyans Health and Wellness is also pleased to partner with a variety of local businesses and ethical traders, such as Stephanie’s Spa.

Since launching in 2016, The Banyans has welcomed many discerning individuals into our purpose-built therapeutic residence.
