Heroin & Opioid Addiction Treatment Program

When clinically appropriate, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation provides adjunctive, medication-assisted treatment to promote recovery from opioid addiction.

In response to the nation's epidemic rise in addiction to prescription pain medications and heroin—drugs known as opioids—the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation developed COR-12™, a medication-assisted adjunct to our evidence-based Twelve Step treatment programs.

Comprehensive Opioid Response with the Twelve Steps (COR-12) may be recommended by your treatment team at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation to:

  • ease the discomfort of opioid withdrawal with the use of Suboxone (Buprenorphine)
  • reduce cravings
  • help you engage more successfully in rehab

The ultimate goal of our treatment programs is abstinence from drugs.
