Our Community

Blanchet Farm Offers An Oasis of Hope

Blanchet House operates Blanchet Farm, a 62-acre property located one hour outside of Portland, for men to build sobriety and a new direction in life.

After many attempts to gain long-lasting sobriety, Rob Moody, 57, needed something different–an unorthodox approach to addiction recovery. A friend recommended he try Blanchet Farm in rural Oregon. For a city dweller, farm life would be new to Moody.

“I never thought I’d enjoy living out in the country. It started with the animals,” Moody says. “Walking the goats. I’d lie down for an hour in the trees watching the goats eat.”

For Moody and others, a traumatic childhood spent in and out of foster care led him to self-medicate with substances. He’d tried many times to quit using drugs.

“Toward the end of my stay at the farm, several guys asked me, ‘How do you do it? How are you happy day and after?’ Moody recalls. “One word, gratitude. Look around. Look at what you have here.”
