Hosting Various Workshops Throughout North Carolina Covering Topics Related to Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder

Substance use disorders is a significant challenge for not only those struggling with it, but also family members, the community, and the professional caregivers affected by it. It takes a strong support system and a committed network of people to facilitate a successful recovery and to improve the lives of those struggling with addiction.

At The Blanchard Institute, we are committed to providing ongoing support and education for those who are struggling with substance use disorders, family members affected by it, and local churches, schools, and organizations that assist with recovery efforts. That is why we offer a series of workshops and events tailored to the needs of those who are eager to learn more about the recovery process and the unique challenges it presents.

The Blanchard Institute employs a family-focused approach for addiction recovery, and we work with clients throughout Charlotte and the surrounding areas in North Carolina. We offer an intensive outpatient program, partial hospitalization program, outpatient program, recovery management, and family addiction support with services that are tailored to the patient.
