Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is the leader in alcoholism treatment and drug addiction
Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation invented modern addiction treatment, and our success in alcoholism and drug addiction treatment is based on years of research and studying what works in addiction recovery. We treat each person who comes to us with respect, while providing a safe place in which to heal.
Our treatment philosophy is based on the recognition that alcohol and drug addiction is a disease and that abstinence is the best way to manage the condition. We approach addiction treatment in a holistic way, working with mind, body and spirit as components of a healthy life.
Each person who turns to Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation for help comes with a unique personal history and set of circumstances. Treatment is tailored to ensure the most effective approaches and best opportunity for recovery. The individual's alcohol and drug treatment plans will be influenced by a number of factors including family history, addictive substance(s), gender, physical health, and many other variables.
Specializing in the treatment of co-occurring disorders
It is very common for those who struggle with drug addiction to also have a co-occurring mental health condition such as depression, anxiety disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder. A mental health professional is part of each patient's care team to ensure that any co-occurring mental health issues are identified and treated along with addiction.
Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is delivered many different ways depending on the needs of the individual. Residential treatment may be necessary for some, and others may be able to complete substance abuse treatment on an outpatient basis. For most, a combination of addiction treatment services provide the best chance at recovery. Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation provides the full continuum of care to meet each individual's treatment needs while providing continuity of care.
