The mission of Hazelden Publishing is to provide products and services to help people recognize, understand, and overcome addiction and closely related problems.
Proven-effective, time-tested principles transformed
into practical tools
A heritage of innovation — it's what Hazelden Publishing is all about. The innovation started in 1954, when Hazelden bought the rights to a little black book written by Richmond Walker. The book's format was untried — a brief meditation followed by a daily reading and prayer. Hazelden's second president, Patrick Butler, possessed the vision to see the book's potential. The book launched Hazelden's publishing operations by selling almost 5,000 copies in its first year. Since then, Twenty-Four Hours a Day has sold over eight million copies in 30 countries.
Today, the goal of Hazelden Publishing is to publish real-world resources that are accessible for all experience levels and all learning styles.
