The Banyans Healthcare Group has opened three new businesses in Brisbane this year, including The Banyans Health Plus day programs in response to surging demand for mental health and substance dependency treatment services.

Located at 16 Thompson Street in the inner-north suburb of Bowen Hills, The Banyans Health Plus has the added advantage of being situated with The Banyans Medical Centre and Specialist Clinics as well as its own nutritionist-run café, Wholesome & Bean.

The new businesses expand The Banyans Healthcare Group’s vision to provide premium medical care at all stages of the mental health and substance dependency recovery journey, and also add general medical treatment to its services.

“The Banyans Healthcare Group wants to provide treatment for our patients for all their health needs from their first point of contact with their GP through to comprehensive, integrated treatment for mental health and substance dependency conditions at Health Plus or at our Residence,” The Banyans Healthcare Group Chief Executive Officer Ruth Limkin says.

“Once our patients have finished their Health Plus or residential programs, they will now be able to access follow up treatment, if needed, at The Banyans Medical Centre and Specialist Clinics with doctors who already know them well and that they trust,” Ms Limkin says.

The Banyans approach to health is thorough and holistic.

The Banyans Healthcare Group has an underlying philosophy that multidisciplinary, integrated care provides the best outcomes for patients. All the doctors participate in continuing professional development, so their advice is based on the best available scientific evidence balanced with decades of medical experience.

“As a general practitioner, I strive to help each patient be their very best physically and mentally. Working in a family practice and with all the complexities that involves, it can sometimes feel like a jigsaw puzzle with every person and their treatment often being different,” says General Practitioner Dr Matt Warburton.

“It’s the challenge of how to best treat my patient’s issue that I thrive on, and it’s the reason I love my job so much. There’s so much to know and so much to learn – it really is lifelong learning,” he says.

The Banyans Health Plus

The Banyans Health Plus provides world-class, multidisciplinary day programs that take mental health, substance dependency, and wellbeing treatment to a new level.

Providing one-on-one care, Health Plus is perfect for busy professionals or those seeking treatment for a range of concerns in a private and understanding environment.

The underlying philosophy is to provide private, tailored excellence in health care in a convenient and understanding environment where barriers to treatment are removed.

The one-on-one, multidisciplinary treatment model includes time to attend to work matters in between treatment sessions with space provided specifically for this purpose, and with meals provided by Wholesome & Bean.

 

The Banyans Health Plus is a one-on-one, luxury, multidisciplinary day-program treatment model. 

 

The Banyans Health Plus offers four multidisciplinary Integrated Day Programs:

  • Mental Health
  • Substance Dependency
  • Eating Disorders, and
  • Dual Diagnosis

Leading The Banyans Health Plus are Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Nathan Mueller and Clinical Director Peter Hayton.

 

 

The programs include access to general practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, addiction medicine specialists, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and mindfulness and yoga therapists, depending on each patient’s particular requirements.

Ms Limkin says the day programs were developed in response to surging demand for mental health and substance dependency treatment services. The Banyans Health Plus represents a revolutionary, one-on-one model of care that provides patients with convenience, comfort, and confidentiality.

“There is no group therapy at The Banyans Health Plus,” Ms Limkin says. “This makes us unique when compared with other community day programs and we believe it yields the best patient outcomes with our patients more inclined to speak freely to the members of their treating team.”
