Tens of millions of people suffer from Substance Use Disorders and active mental illness. The health care system and societal stigmas present hurdles that make recovery difficult for families during this stressful time. No family should tackle this alone. Our goal is to guide and coach you through this process. The Blanchard Institute works to educate and support the entire family unit on their recovery journey.
Addiction is a family disease. As your loved one’s addiction to drugs or alcohol progressively worsens, you may experience fear, anxiety, anger, guilt, and even abuse. There may be significant turmoil in your life as a result. Here at The Blanchard Institute, we begin to explore how to heal and recover from the impact of substance use disorders, mental illness, trauma, and codependency on your lives and relationships. This is a necessary step as we guide you through the process of understanding the conditions that have led to mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual deterioration. We lead you through the process of starting a new chapter and a story of healing.
Our family support programs encompass a variety of services, including:
- Family education & awareness
- Case management
- Aftercare planning & implementation
- Relapse prevention
- Continuing care & counseling
- Support groups & workshops
We help families identify, understand, and create a plan to eliminate enabling behaviors. This journey is new and foreign to most, so we have developed a state-of-the-art, step-by-step guide that addresses how this process works, what to expect, what questions you may have, and most importantly, what your role will be during this process of recovery. We define our roles as the professionals, your role as the family, and your role in navigating the ups and downs and predictable chaos that accompanies early recovery.
