No one knows addiction and recovery like the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. A force of healing and hope since 1949, we are the largest nonprofit provider of drug and alcohol treatment, prevention and recovery resources.
Our Recovery Advocacy team carries that experience and perspective into the public sphere, supplying the media and policymakers with front-line facts, statistics and observations; access to the field's leading thinkers and clinicians; and innovative ideas for improving America's approach to this challenging public health issue. We are your go-to connection for information on confronting addiction and the nation's heroin and prescription opioid epidemic.
Meet the team spearheading our efforts to educate the public, provide media interviews, shape public policy and the smash the stigma of addiction. Our top physicians frequently testify on Capitol Hill, provide media interviews, speak at national events and consult with policymakers and journalists.
