Substance Abuse Workshops

The Blanchard Institute hosts various substance use disorder workshops throughout North Carolina. These workshops also cover topics that are related to co-occurring mental health conditions and serve to increase awareness of them at both the individual and community level.

Putting Our Commitment Into Practice

Substance use disorders cause difficulties for everyone whose lives they touch. This includes the dependent person, their family members, and the community at large. It takes a strong support system and a committed network of people to facilitate recovery and improve the lives of those who are affected. 

At The Blanchard Institute, we are committed to providing ongoing support and education to families struggling with substance use disorder issues. This commitment extends to churches, schools, and any other organization that assist with recovery efforts. This is why we offer workshops and events that address the needs of those who wish to learn more about the unique challenges of the recovery process.
