Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Philosophy
Hazelden helps restore hope, healing, and health to people affected by addiction to alcohol and other drugs. All who seek recovery will find it, and the stigma of addiction will be overcome. Treat the whole person as well as the illness. Treat every person with dignity and respect. Continue a commitment to the Twelve Step fellowship. Be of service. Remain open to innovation.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

ABOUT HAZELDEN BETTY FORD FOUNDATION - NEWBERG
One of the best-known addiction treatment providers in the country, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation operates five residential facilities, one of which, about 25 miles southwest of Portland, is the Springbrook campus in Newberg. Beyond offering residential care for adults faced with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders, the 85-bed center provides medication-assisted treatment for opioid addictions and day treatment with options for sober living.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
With treatment rooted in evidence-based modalities and the 12 Steps, programs are personalized and holistic, treating mind, body, and spirit.
Considered the highest level of care available, residential treatment typically lasts between 30 and 90 days. Throughout their stay, residents attend daily process groups and lectures, meet with assigned counselors, take part in ake in family and couples’ counseling (where applicable), and take part in workshops designed to address relapse prevention, stress and anger management, and life skills, amongst other topics. Clients with opioid addiction have access medication-assisted treatment.
With treatment running Monday through Sunday, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., day treatment acts as an effective intermediate level of care. Whether experiencing chronic relapse or repeated attempts at long-term recovery, clients in day treatment may also take advantage of Hazelden in Newberg’s gender-specific structured sober living facility.
The facility also offers specialized services for healthcare professionals and clients struggling with extreme trauma, an LGBTQ curriculum that integrates sensitive treatment into a mostly heterosexual treatment environment, and an intensive three-day family program.
Aftercare consists of online and telephone coaching, continuing care groups, recovery retreats, and family guidance and support.
Staff at Hazelden in Newberg include board-certified psychiatrists, a clinical psychologist who specializes in trauma treatment, certified drug and alcohol counselors (CADCs), and a marriage and family therapist.
