As one of the only socially acceptable drugs, alcohol is a fixture in everyday life, from business lunches and office parties to sporting events and prime-time television. For those struggling with alcohol dependence and substance use disorder, it can be hard to avoid and even harder to quit once you realize you have a problem.
Alcoholism is a grave disease, but the condition is treatable if you have professional help and support. At The Blanchard Institute, we offer detox and ongoing treatment for alcoholism, as well as any co-occurring mental health disorders. In addition to Charlotte and Lake Norman, we also serve clients from all over the state of North Carolina. Our multi-faceted, holistic treatment approach addresses both the causes of addiction and any underlying mental health concerns such as depression or anxiety. We use a family-focused, evidence-based treatment regimen and we also provide support for loved ones affected by the addiction.

These programs do more than help clients abstain from alcohol and other drugs. They also help clients feel like part of a community and prepare them for the inevitable challenges of everyday life.
Alcohol-related problems—which result from drinking too much, too fast, or too often—are among the most significant public health issues in the United States.
Many people struggle with controlling their drinking at some time in their lives. According to the NIH, more than 14 million adults ages 18 and older have alcohol use disorder (AUD), and 1 in 10 children live in a home with a parent who has a drinking problem.
Also known as alcohol counseling, behavioral treatments involve working with a health professional to identify and help change the behaviors that lead to heavy drinking. Behavioral treatments share certain features, which can include:
Developing the skills needed to stop or reduce drinking
Helping to build a strong social support system
Working to set reachable goals
Coping with or avoiding the triggers that might cause relapse
