BALM® Family Recovery

An online education and coaching support program for families with loved ones struggling to recover from Substance Use Disorder (SUD).

To help families through this season, we are offering additional support calls during the holidays.

Is BALM Family Recovery for you?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you at the end of your rope with your loved one’s addiction?

  • Are you looking for the right words to say to your loved one?

  • Is what you’re doing now not working?

If you answered "Yes", then BALM can help you help yourself, and learn how to help your loved one.

What is BALM Family Recovery?

Also know as "the BALM" for short...

  • It was created by Beverly Buncher, and is led by some of the nation’s leading family recovery life coaches.

  • It’s a year-long, online program designed to help families help themselves, so they in turn, can help their loved ones.

  • Our “long-haul” approach has proven to quicken recovery and shorten relapses vs. other short-lived programs.

The BALM is more than just a program, it's a path to peace and recovery for you, your family, and often your loved one.

How does the BALM work?

BALM stands for "Be a Loving Mirror"...

  • It’s a unique method based on love and connection that helps families shift away from anxious reactivity to calm responsiveness.

  • BALM is designed to facilitate this method through three main components: Information, Transformation, and Support.

  • Each component teaches families the skills and provides them with the tools they need to be their loved one’s best chance at recovery.

“BALM has brought me so much compassion for my children. BALM has changed my life and relationships. By the grace of God, my son will be 5 years sober in September and my daughter 8 years in August.”


– Stacey Karchner

“I have spent so much money enabling an addiction but I knew this time the money spent was going to bring about a great reward…my own peace. It is the best investment I’ve ever made! I am worth it. My son is worth it.”
