I began attending the Blanchard Institute in January of this year. I had Previously spent two months in Florida where I completed a Detox and a PHP Program. Before I had even left Miami to return home it was very clear to me that It was essential that I continue my recovery back here in Charlotte. Before I knew it I found myself on the phone with a Lovely Lady by the name of Judy. She took care of everything, and the very next morning after touching down back in Charlotte I was welcomed with open arms into Blanchard. As with any recovery there are ups and there are downs; There are emotions and feelings I can not even begin to explain! Everyone here at Blanchard made me feel like family even when we had our moments and we were not seeing eye to eye. We ultimately worked it out and I could not be More Thankful to everyone involved in my recovery here at The Blanchard Institute! Ward, Ali, Judy thank you so much for what you do and thank you for caring about me! I have learned many things this past year. Perhaps the most important thing I have taken from my Journey is.. When You have the Willingness to make this change in your life You are doing it for Yourself, you are doing it for the people that love and care about you and you are doing it for the people you don’t even know that will be forever changed by hearing your story! God Blessread more

I felt betrayed by the therapist when fears and vulnerabilities I shared in a closed group were later brought up and used against me as a measure to keep me in treatment longer. I felt disrespected and unheard by the therapist and doctor. Staying in this facility stressed me out to the breaking point. I checked out early and have had an easier time staying clean and serene since. Also, the billing practices are falsely misleading. I agreed to a certain out-of-pocket amount initially and was billed thousands of dollars more months later, even after they received more than $20,000 from my insurance company. Don't waste your family's money and time. Stick with the tried and true method, the 84-year old program that more

The professionals at TBI are first class, they truly care. Thank you Stacy, Kristin, Sam, Ralph, Emily, Judy, Alley, Jessica, Megan, Jennifer and everyone there! Being honest, open and willing allowed me to utilize Blanchard’s services, instructions, and family program to enhance my recovery program and begin the healing process I so needed. Addiction does not have a one stop cure, and TBI helps to explain that to the patient and the more

The coping skills, life skills, CBT/DBT, and brain lectures are great. Music and art therapy awesome. The family sessions are helpful. However, I felt betrayed by the therapist when fears and vulnerabilities I shared in a closed group were later brought up and used against me as a measure to keep me in treatment longer. I felt disrespected and unheard by the therapist and doctor. Staying in the program stressed me out to the breaking point of a slip. I checked out early and have had an easier time staying clean and serene since. The program offers yoga and acupuncture which is fantastic! Nurse Emily is the more

I cant even begin to express all my gratitude for Ward and The Blanchard Institute. Ward was a saving grace to me in a true time of need. Ward is truly a man of his word, and the staff members are very well trained and experience. So very thankful for their expert guidance and direction. The work they do with not only the suffering loved one, but the family as well is truly amazing. The workshops they provide for families really goes into depth about the disease and give so much knowledge and education to everyone directly involved. You feel very apart of this process and they have so much hope to give. I cant express this more

Change Agents: The Blanchard Alumni Program

Our Alumni Community calls themselves change agents because once someone goes through one of our programs, they spread the message of change and positivity into their communities. Spreading healing is paramount, that’s why our alumni are the bedrock of our program.

The Blanchard Institute’s Alumni Program is designed to provide a lasting and long term support system. Change agents have regularly scheduled events, a private facebook group and regular meetings. In addition to being a source for long-term support, change agents are also a fantastic way to meet sober support, learn to have fun in sobriety, and form long-term relationships.
