Review by Contributors


The Blandine House has been helping individuals struggling with addiction since 1970 when it was named for Sister Blandine Eisele, who was inspired by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Offering long-term, men’s-only residential care, the nonprofit is located in Fond du Lac, Wis. in a serene, suburban community.


Individuals gain admittance to the program by demonstrating to staff a willingness to change. Each plan is individualized but heavily grounded in the 12-Steps.

Residents participate in a structured schedule of daily activities, which include individual and group therapy. Groups focus on addiction education, family issues, and independent living skills. There is also occasionally meditation and spirituality time. Days typically start around 9:00 a.m. and end with dinner at 5:30 p.m. Clients typically stay for at least 90 days but the facility’s website recommends up to nine months.

Aftercare and sober living services are available once residential treatment is complete. Clients may also participate in the alumni group, which often includes fundraisers, community services, and continuing support.


The Blandine House is staffed by a team of licensed substance abuse counselors and clinical social workers as well as house managers.


Details about accommodations are not widely available. Images on the facility’s website showcase cozy sitting rooms with couches, chairs, and TVs as well as a pool table and outdoor bonfire area.Feedback provided by two reviewers at the time of this writing indicated approval for accommodations, cleanliness, meals, and extracurricular activities with four- and five-star ratings.


Dave is the only alum who has provided feedback to for Blandine House, Inc. to date. His overall positive review awarded five out of five stars for staff support and counselor’s level of respect, availability, and flexibility with switching therapists. Additionally, this reviewer indicated that all his expectations were met and that treatment was worth the cost.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY has received a single review from a loved one of a former client to date. Debbie complained that treatment was “Too short. Many clients need more time.” Unlike alum Dave, she indicated that treatment was not worth the cost and only gave an average rating for its effectiveness. Family participation was awarded five stars but the same reviewer indicated that she felt staff was inexperienced.


According to its website, the rehab center takes limited insurance providers but accepts self-pay. A former client indicated that he received a discount based on his income.

Clean Needs more experienced staff. Not many other options around the area. Too short. Many clients need more time.
