At the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, our earliest leaders believed that too many people were suffering from addiction for us to keep our knowledge, tools and experience to ourselves. That's why addiction education has always been a cornerstone of our mission. We recognize the importance of preparing the next generation of highly qualified addiction treatment providers as well as equipping other professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to recognize and respond to the challenges of addiction—all so that more people who suffer from addiction receive the help they need.
