North Carolina Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs
At the Blanchard Institute, we guide individuals and their families into recovery from substance use disorder and the many co-occurring mental health disorders that so often accompany it. Our goal is to help everyone affected by drugs and alcohol develop an enduring foundation for long-term recovery and healing. To accomplish this, we combine a holistic approach with evidence-based treatment modalities that address alcohol and/or drug abuse and mental health issues at the same time.
In the following sections, we’ll explore our various treatment programs and our multiple levels of care. We’ll also discuss the role our Family Programs play in long-term recovery and show you why they stand at the center of everything that we do.
We Treat Dual Diagnosis
Our Dual Diagnosis program runs concurrently with other modalities to treat the various mental health conditions that so often accompany addictive behaviors. During the Dual Diagnosis program, our compassionate, experienced team of masters level therapists guides clients through evidence based treatments that are designed to heal the mind, body, and spirit of our clients.
Our team is trained to treat disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD and many more. To treat these conditions, they use a variety of individual and group therapies that include everything from trauma and cognitive behavioral therapy to holistic practices of acupuncture and recovery yoga. Upon completing treatment at the Blanchard Institute, clients are thus prepared to meet the Dual Diagnosis challenges that might otherwise block their way toward recovery.
Individualized Treatment Plans
Every client has a unique story, and the healing process is no different. The Blanchard Institute offers group and individual therapy, as well as holistic modalities that bring clients back to themselves in mind, body, and spirit. In combination with our Masters level and fully licensed team, our therapeutic offerings help each individual find a custom path for recovery.
The Blanchard Institute provides an empathetic and accepting atmosphere where individuals who suffer from substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders receive progressive treatment in a highly structured environment.
Our program is formed on the foundation of evidence-based practices blended with holistic and individual treatment planning unlike most substance use disorder programs.
We understand that individuals are going to require different needs and treatment approaches depending on their substance use history and their overall circumstances. We are confident we can create a path that ensures their journey into sobriety is comfortable, safe, and rooted in a solid foundation of tools to use as they venture into early recovery.
Addiction & Mental Health Support For The Entire Family
Drugs and alcohol can damage every life they touch. This is especially true of the addicted person’s family members. That’s why the entire family system must be included in the healing process that our treatment programs encourage.
Our family programs help to develop emotional connections, foster education and ultimately provide a transformative healing process. This program also helps family members enforce healthy boundaries and cease codependent or enabling behaviors.

The Blanchard Institute’s Levels of Care
The first step toward guiding clients out of addiction and into a satisfying recovery is placing them into our programs at the appropriate level of care. While there is ample room for individualized treatments plans within them, we offer Four distinct levels of care:

- Recovery Management Program
Within those levels of care we provide various services including:

- Thursday and Saturday Family Support Groups
We also offer a comprehensive program to our alumni as well as Telehealth services that allow our clients to stay in touch with recovery after they graduate from treatment.
Our Programs for Substance Use Disorder and Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders
The Blanchard Institute’s experienced, masters level therapists administer a variety of treatment programs within each of the above levels of care. It is within the safe and supportive context of these programs that clients truly begin the healing process that is required to escape from the despair of substance use disorder and any co-occurring mental health conditions.
As we’ve already stated, addiction is a family disease. The same holds true of the mental health conditions that often accompany or cause substance use disorder. Both of these conditions can have a severe negative impact on both individual members and the family as a group. Our Family Program provides evidence-based treatment for the entire family. This program works to educate and support the family during the difficult journey toward long term recovery.
More specifically, the therapists in our Family Program help family members help eliminate feelings of guilt, anxiety, and worry. They also help the family establish proper boundaries, provide appropriate support, and eliminate codependent/enabling behaviors. Blanchard’s Family Program also includes continuing education and support. When family members participate in our programs, they emerge from the experience with the ability to provide proper support for the addicted member without compromising their own quality of life.
Men’s and Women’s Programs
Although there is a great deal of overlap, men and women suffer from substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders differently. This is why The Blanchard Institute offers gender-specific programs that are designed to address the various forms of trauma and distorted thinking that lead to substance use disorder in the first place.
These programs run within the parameters of our various levels of care, but they feature gender-specific process groups that allow clients to heal from their personal traumas is a safe and comfortable environment.
