At The Blanchard Institute, we guide individuals and families struggling from substance use disorders, alcohol abuse, and the many co-occurring mental health disorders that often accompany these dependencies, into a life of recovery. Our goal is to help everyone affected by drugs & alcohol develop a solid foundation for long-term recovery and healing through evidence-based treatment modalities that address both SUDs and mental health issues concurrently.
Below we’ll explore our levels of care and various treatment options with each, discuss the roles that our Family Support Program and Alumni Program play in a life of long-term recovery, and understand why these stand at the center of everything we do.
INDIVIDUALIZED DUAL DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT PROGRAMS
Every client has a unique story, and the healing process is no different. The Blanchard Institute offers group and individual therapy, as well as holistic modalities that bring clients back to themselves in mind, body, and spirit. In combination with our master’s level, fully licensed team, our therapeutic offerings help each individual find a custom path for recovery.
Our Dual Diagnosis program runs concurrently with other modalities to treat the various mental health conditions that so often accompany addictive behaviors. During the Dual Diagnosis program, our compassionate, experienced team of master’s level therapists guides clients through evidence-based treatments that are designed to heal the mind, body, and spirit of our clients.
Our team is trained to treat disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD, among others. To treat these conditions, our staff performs a variety of individual and group-based therapies that include everything from trauma and cognitive behavioral therapy to holistic practices of acupuncture and recovery yoga. Upon completing treatment at The Blanchard Institute, clients are prepared to meet the Dual Diagnosis challenges that might otherwise block their way toward recovery.
We understand that individuals have different needs and will require different substance and alcohol treatment approaches depending on their history and their overall circumstances. We are confident that we can create a path to sobriety that is comfortable, safe, and rooted in a solid foundation of tools to use as they venture into early recovery.
LEVELS OF CARE
Our four levels of care provide clients with an individualized, step-down treatment plan for up to one year.
SUPPORT FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY
Substance abuse and mental illness can damage every life they touch. This is especially true of the addicted person’s family members. That’s why the entire family system must be included in the healing process that our treatment programs encourage.
Our family programs help to develop emotional connections, foster education and ultimately provide a transformative healing process. This program also helps family members enforce healthy boundaries and cease codependent or enabling behaviors.
MEN’S & WOMEN’S PROGRAMS
Although there is a great deal of overlap, men and women suffer from substance or alcohol use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders differently. This is why The Blanchard Institute offers gender-specific programs that are designed to address the various forms of trauma and distorted thinking that lead to substance use disorder in the first place.
These programs run within the parameters of our various levels of care, but they feature gender-specific process groups that allow clients to heal from their personal traumas in a safe and comfortable environment.
