Education. Guidance. Awareness.

It's a process, not an event.

Mental health conditions, substance use disorders and addictions impact an entire family and support system. By the time families and friends take the first step toward asking for help, they have endured a great deal of pain, frustration, anger, and sadness. Untreated mental health conditions and addiction behaviors can hold a family hostage. The good news is interventions do work and can jump start the Recovery process, not only for the suffering individual, but for the entire family.

Blanchard & Associates views interventions as a process, not an event. It has been proven that the best results occur when the entire family is involved in the recovery process. Our Intervention and Crisis Management services employ the most progressive, evidence-based treatment approaches used to treat mental health, substance use disorders and other addictive behaviors. Cultivated through a decade of experience working with the most premier treatment centers and mental health and addiction professionals in the world, Blanchard & Associates’ “Invitational Model” includes the entire family and support system.  Through a combination of Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, and evidence-based theories, our caring and empathetic approach provides a knowledgeable, safe, and comfortable experience during your family’s time of crisis.

Our Intervention Approach

Blanchard & Associates believes in guiding and helping families establish a firm foundation in recovery, and that requires healthy behaviors. Mental health, substance use disorders and addictions are diseases that can rob an individual of their self-awareness and livelihood. Individuals are often unaware of the consequences of their behavior, the degree of their illness, and its impact on their family and support system. Our intervention approach aims to provide awareness and help the suffering individual recognize the scale of the problem and convince him or her to seek immediate help. Families need awareness of their own behaviors, as well. Treating and supporting the entire family provides the best opportunity for the suffering individual to discover long term recovery and a happy, healthy life!

Our approach is non-threatening and therapeutic for the entire family. Everyone is aware of our involvement and purpose of the family meeting. The family is inviting the individual to participate in the family treatment plan by committing to attending the pre-determined treatment program that best meets the personal needs. Our goal is to minimize shame and instead, focus on motivating the individual to agree to help.

Although the most emotionally charged component of this process for family members and loved ones is the “intervention” meeting, this is really just the first step. It’s the remaining days of continuing care, family work, and planning and implementation of the aftercare that is much more vital and influential in the long-term prognosis of the family system.  And that’s what Blanchard & Associates is here to heal.

Our Intervention Process


During the initial phone call an individual or loved one will speak directly with a highly experienced case manager who will assess all background information provided and communicate best options moving forward.

Early Education

A face-to-face family consultation will be scheduled to educate the family on potential treatment options.  Not only for the identified individual struggling, but also for each family member.

Initial Consultation

The multidisciplinary team will assess all information gathered during the initial consultation and make treatment recommendations.


If intervention services are appropriate, our team of qualified, licensed professionals will walk you through the process and navigate the dialogue with your loved one.

Weekly Phone Calls

Weekly phone calls are available to family members and will be presented as part of the treatment plan after an initial consultation.
