Start Your Recovery With Blanchard’s Revolutionary Withdrawal Management Program

Medical services provided to addiction treatment clients.

The addictive substances that have flooded a person with a severe substance use disorder (SUD)—often for years—typically have overpowered the body’s metabolism but with professional detoxification, there will be a rebound. “In the early weeks of sobriety, your long-abused body works hard to fix the damage,” wrote the authors of the acclaimed Recovery Book.

A safe detox—especially in cases of severe SUD—requires careful management and professional supervision to have a good chance of success. 

The Blanchard Institute’s withdrawal management program offers a revolutionary approach to beginning your recovery journey. Designed for those seeking a safe, effective detoxification process, our program combines the comfort of home with the assurance of medical supervision, providing a seamless transition into the recovery process.

Founder and CEO Ward Blanchard wanted the institute to be more than just another treatment clinic. “Right from the start, we wanted it to be a community resource, a teaching site, and a general wellness center as well,” he says. “We’re heavily family-oriented; in fact, family participation in the treatment of the identified patient is mandated.” 

That includes withdrawal management. “A loved one or caregiver is required to be present during the detox process,” says Blanchard. “That is a safety requirement and it also allows us to interact with their support person and get to know them better and establish a relationship with their sphere of influence.”

Ascertaining the support of the family system is crucial in the detox phase and the identified patient is likely not in a stable mindset when experiencing withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. 

The program is a meticulously designed 7–10 day protocol that begins with a thorough evaluation, followed by daily medical appointments. 

This structure ensures a safe detox from substances, with the flexibility and comfort of remaining in your own home. “The initial evaluation of the new patient may take about 90 minutes,” explains Blanchard. “Every day after that treatment takes about half an hour.”
