Research

Banyan House is often participating in research projects for example:

Implementing best Practice in Evaluation in AOD rehabilitation agencies
(Dr Richard Chenhall, Menzies School of Health)

The research project was conducted in rehabilitation agencies in New South Wales, Western Australia and the Northern Territory to look at how residential treatment programs and therapeutic communities are providing their services.  The researchers were particularly interested in investigating how agencies make evaluations of programs more appropriate to the experiences of residents through treatment so that in response, they can provide better services.

For Banyan House, the project involved implementation of a client assessment inventory, designed specifically for use in a therapeutic community, to provide a measure of clients’ progress through treatment.  Analysis of Inventory data also provides feedback on the effectiveness of the various elements of the rehabilitation program.
