FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM
There are many things that differentiate The Blanchard Institute from other treatment organizations, but it’s our Family Program that serves as the cornerstone of our success.
Our world-class Family Program provides a safe, confidential space for the entire family system to heal and recover–free of charge and open to the community.
WHAT FAMILIES CAN EXPECT
Our Family Program is designed to teach families how to eliminate codependent behaviors, recreate healthy boundaries, and maintain open communication with family members.
Families learn these skills by participating in multi-family groups, interactive classes, and educational lectures. Our Family Programs emphasize early recovery issues and give participants the opportunity to share their feelings and experiences with others in a safe and supportive environment.
Our staff works to help families identify and understand the reasons behind enabling and codependent behaviors. And while this process might be foreign to many families, we’ve developed a unique and evidence-based plan to help it make sense. In our programs, we avoid labels and use a language that everyone can understand. We explain exactly what you should expect before, during, and after treatment. Perhaps most importantly, we explain what each family member’s role will be in the recovery process.
FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP
Our weekly Family Support Group encourages participants to explore and discuss behaviors that increase feelings of trust and self-worth within the family system.
