The Butler Center for Research at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation routinely contacts alumni one, six, and 12 months after treatment to measure how well people are doing in their recovery program. This information allows us to monitor the quality of our care and guides us in our ongoing treatment improvement efforts. If you have recently completed a treatment program, you may receive a call from a staff member of the Butler Center for Research. We appreciate your help and support.
