Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment

The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's inpatient residential rehab programs are built on research and respect.

An Abstinence-Based, Twelve Step Approach

Inpatient addiction treatment comes in slightly different structures and intensities across the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, but an abstinence-based, Twelve Step approach utilizing evidence-based practices is core to all programs.

Assessment and Residential Evaluation

Finding the right addiction rehab can be confusing. Our confidential phone-based or in-person assessment process will help you determine whether treatment makes sense—and, if so, what type.

If your situation involves multiple and complex issues, we may recommend residential evaluation so our multidisciplinary team of addiction treatment specialists can work with you over the course of several days to learn more about your challenges and determine the best rehab plan.

Individualized Drug and Alcohol Rehab

With addiction, every person's situation is different. In designing your treatment plan, a multidisciplinary treatment team will consider multiple variables, including:
  • physical health
  • mental health
  • family relationships
  • substances used
  • gender

Understanding these differences is important in developing the best possible addiction treatment plan—with whatever therapies, services, and medications are needed—to help you get well and stay well. Core treatment activities include:

  • individual therapy
  • educational lectures
  • group therapy
  • special-focus groups

Integrated Mental Health Care

More often than not, addiction comes with complicating factors, such as mental health issues related to anxiety, trauma, or depression. We take an integrated approach to rehab, addressing co-occurring addiction and mental health issues at the same time. Services and resources include:

  • mental health assessments
  • individual and group therapy
  • psychiatric consultation
  • medication management
  • family therapy

Gender-Specific Programs

We maintain separate inpatient addiction treatment programs and lodging for men and women, allowing you to stay focused on your recovery process, explore sensitive issues in a safe and supportive environment, and strengthen trusting relationships with peers.


Most of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation inpatient rehab campuses include on-site medical units staffed by medical doctors and nurses. This way, your detox from alcohol or other drugs process can begin immediately upon admission.

Length of Stay

Our phased approach allows you to advance through treatment at a pace based on your specific situation and clinical milestones.

If you have complex recovery issues requiring more time, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation offers extended lengths of stay. This means more time to focus in greater depth on:

  • special issues and concerns
  • mental health complications
  • relapse prevention
  • sober living skills

Addressing the Specialized Needs of Professionals

When your professional responsibilities affect the safety, well-being, or livelihood of others, addiction to alcohol or other drugs carries profound consequences. Our specialized inpatient addiction treatment programs are designed to provide an optimal level of care for professionals who work in safety-sensitive or high-profile positions, such as:

  • health care professionals
  • legal professionals
  • airline pilots
  • business owners and executives
  • clergy members
  • professional athletes
  • members of the entertainment industry
