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

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

ABOUT HAZELDEN BETTY FORD FOUNDATION

Founded in 1949 in Minnesota, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation operates 17 treatment facilities across nine states. A center in New York City, based in the Chelsea neighborhood, offers outpatient-based treatment for adults struggling with chemical dependency, as well as co-occurring mental health disorders. Medical detox services are not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, clients undergo an initial assessment for clinicians to design an individualized treatment plan. Programming blends the 12-step model of recovery with evidence-based practices, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) typically lasts eight weeks and comprises group therapy, which teaches the first three steps of the 12-step method. Some programming is organized in gender-specific groups. The facility also provides specialized group counseling sessions and workshops that help clients develop basic recovery skills, regulate emotions, recognize triggers, improve impulse control, challenge unrealistic thoughts, and tolerate distress. Hazelden also utilizes individual therapy.

Following the IOP, clients may participate in an extended outpatient program, which meets once or twice weekly for an agreed upon 12-week minimum commitment. Sessions provide individualized support, reinforce cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy concepts, help clients continue to develop sober living skills, and gain support from others in recovery.

Family members are encouraged to participate in treatment, and a free family workshop series is held every Tuesday at 5:45 p.m. at Hazelden's nearby facility in Tribeca, which also offers a structured sober living community.

Strengths: Modern, Clean, Service, Options, Interactive. Weaknesses: Expensive with limited financing options. My Aunt was able to go there because she had the means, but they should fit a lower income demographic into the program.
