If you’re looking for rehab centres in Victoria, you might be a little overwhelmed with the options. Rehab in Melbourne is not created equal, and you might wonder what the difference is between what different centres have to offer.

Overcoming any type of addiction is no easy task, and finding the best rehab to support you while you undertake this important journey is crucial.

At The Banyans, we understand that addiction can happen to anyone. We’re rated as one of the best private rehab centres in Victoria – and Australia – and we’re here to help you overcome the challenge of addiction.


The Need For Rehab in Melbourne

When seeking out rehab in Melbourne, it can be helpful to know that you are not alone.

It may surprise you that an estimated 1 in 20 Australians has an addiction or substance abuse problem. According to recent reports, Australia was ranked first in the world for meth consumption and 5th for MDMA consumption.

Australians were also named the heaviest drinkers in the world in an international 2021 survey after spending more time drunk in 2020 than any other nation. The report also found that almost a quarter of Australians regret becoming intoxicated.

Melbourne has been rated one of the highest states for overall alcohol consumption and some illicit drug use.

Data also tells us that while many Australians can struggle with substance misuse, this number is coming down. The need for rehab as more people become aware of their situation and seek support to overcome substance addiction is vital at this time.

Addiction is not a socio-economic problem and doesn’t discriminate between race, gender, social status, or financial standing.

Many high-level executives, elite athletes, and public figures turn to drugs and alcohol to help deal with the stress of high-profile, high-pressure lifestyles.

The Banyans is committed to providing complete confidentiality so clients can focus on their recovery and have the best chance of rehabilitation without the stress of public attention and judgment.
