Premier Addiction Treatment Center in Southern California The world-renowned Betty Ford Center for addiction treatment is located in the resort community of Rancho Mirage, California, just 20 minutes south of Palm Springs. Established in 1982 by former first lady and outspoken recovery advocate Betty Ford, the iconic rehab center sits on a private, 20-acre campus, adjacent to the Eisenhower Medical Center. When she opened the Rancho Mirage treatment center, Betty Ford patterned the drug and alcohol rehab approach after the Hazelden Foundation's Minnesota Model of care. The approach combines multidisciplinary care for the body, mind and spirit with Twelve Step practices of mutual support. In 2014, the Betty Ford Center and Hazelden merged, forming the nation’s largest nonprofit addiction treatment center, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. In recognizing addiction to alcohol and other drugs as a chronic disease—and recovery as a new way of living—our treatment programs are individualized, collaborative and incorporate varying levels and frequencies of care, as needed. Rehab programs and services available at the Betty Ford Center’s Rancho Mirage campus include bio-psycho-social assessments and evaluation, medical detox, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment, nearby sober living homes, education and support for families and children, and post-rehab continuing care groups.
