Project Description

Family Case Management

We are all in this together.

Families require initial and often ongoing support before, during and after the alcoholic or addicts’ completion of treatment. This is an important process and one that is often misunderstood and overlooked. Family Case Management provides guidance and support to ensure the family does not revert back to unhealthy behavior patterns. One of the most difficult behaviors to overcome is enabling the addict/alcoholic. Unfortunately family members are often unaware of this behavior until it’s too late. Having a Family Case Manager to guide the family through this vital time will increase the likelihood of a successful, long-term outcome.

Your Family is our Client

The disease of addiction impacts families and loved ones in a variety of ways. Very similar to the addict/alcoholic who is overwhelmed by their substance, a family’s lives can be overwhelmed by their worry, concern, anxiety, and desire to control the narrative of their loved one’s addiction. The early sobriety and recovery process is a long-term process that requires constant care, support, education, and resources. A team of professionals are involved in the Family Case Management. Blanchard & Associates helps families navigate the chaos and “unknowns” of early recovery. We work with families to help them with their questions, point them in the right direction for support and treatment, and assist them in a time of crisis.

Early “Family Recovery” is a comprehensive and involved process for families. Family Case Management adds order, education, awareness, support and a foundation to families in their initial journey into their “new normal” in recovery.


 “There are no two situations exactly alike. We implement
 a process that is unique to each family situation.”

“For almost every addict who is mired in this terrible disease, others — a mother or father, a child or spouse, an aunt or uncles or grandparents, a brother or sister — are suffering too. Families are the hidden victims of addiction, enduring enormous levels of stress and pain. They suffer sleepless nights, deep anxiety, and physical exhaustion brought on by worry and desperation. They lie awake for hours on end as fear for their loved one’s safety crowds out any possibility of sleep. They live each day with a weight inside that drags them down. Unable to laugh or smile, they are sometimes filled with bottled-up anger or a constant sadness that keeps them on the verge of tears.”  – Beverly Conyers
