Expert and Comprehensive Care

Hazelden Betty Ford provides a full continuum of clinical care and recovery support, including in-person and online options.

To help determine whether you might need substance use or mental health disorder treatment, Hazelden Betty Ford offers online and phone-based screenings confidentially and at no charge.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient treatment, also referred to as residential treatment, provides the highest level of clinical care for patients diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Typically, inpatient programs include medical detox and integrated mental health services.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment –  In-Person
Addiction to alcohol or other drugs can be diagnosed as mild, moderate or severe. Outpatient care is best for those with mild to moderate substance use disorders. Different levels of outpatient care are available so you can transition from more frequent therapy sessions to less intensive as you meet recovery milestones and are on the path to managing your own recovery with less clinical support.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment – Virtual
Hazelden Betty Ford virtual outpatient care is insurance-eligible and designed to replicate their in-person patient care in every way—combining group therapy and individual counseling sessions via telehealth.

Mental Health Services—In-Person
It is very common for people to struggle with both substance use and mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety or trauma. The most effective care integrates treatment for substance use disorders and mental health, so all issues are addressed at the same time. Services include inpatient and outpatient individual or group therapy, family therapy, assessments and medication management.

Mental Health Services—Virtual
A mental health assessment is the place to start if you or a loved one is struggling, but you’re not sure the level of care needed. Hazelden Betty Ford will help you figure out next steps. Licensed and credentialed mental health professionals will provide you with confidential consultation and individual therapy sessions via telehealth technologies.

Specialized Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders—COR-12®
Hazelden Betty Ford’s proven effective Comprehensive Opioid Response with the Twelve Steps (COR-12®) program includes group therapy, educational sessions, individual therapy and medication-assisted treatment that keeps you engaged over a longer period of time to effectively treat the complex condition of opioid use disorder.

Specialized Care for Adolescents, Teens and Young Adults
Hazelden Betty Ford’s national center for youth and families is home to specialized programs for teens and young adults. Programs include a full range of comprehensive assessment, brief intervention, inpatient, outpatient and mental health services, along with family support.

Services and Support for Families
Addiction is called “a family disease” for good reason. Everyone is affected when a loved one is struggling with addiction or mental health disorders.

Can you tell me more about Hazelden Betty Ford and why it excels?

Hazelden Betty Ford’s integrated approach to addiction treatment and recovery has been emulated throughout the world, and they are seen as a standard-bearer of quality and integrity in the field. When the Hazelden Foundation, based in Center City, MN, and the Betty Ford Center, located in Rancho Mirage, CA, merged in 2014, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation became the nation’s leading nonprofit addiction and mental health treatment provider.

Hazelden was established 1949, with a forward-thinking approach to the chronic disease of alcoholism — an approach built on emerging Twelve Step principles and practices, and abiding respect and compassion for the individual receiving care. The Betty Ford Center was established in 1982, with former First Lady Betty Ford — “the First Lady of Recovery” — bringing unprecedented visibility to the disease of addiction and the hope of treatment and recovery.
