Welcome to the Hazelden Betty Ford Patient Care Network, a pioneering addiction treatment and recovery services collaboration among healthcare organizations nationwide.
All too often, individuals with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions are getting lost in the system due to poor case management, unethical practices or the overwhelming options for treatment. The Hazelden Betty Ford Patient Care Network resolves these challenges through collaborative affiliations designed to improve patient engagement, therapeutic alliance, self-efficacy and treatment outcomes. We operate as a multi-level healthcare network of principled, proactive providers who share a philosophy about the most-effective, evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders along with a commitment to improving the patient experience.
Our vision is to cultivate a broad behavioral health network to provide patients everywhere with comprehensive, well-coordinated care. It’s a strategy that also promotes an evolved, patient-centric approach to addiction treatment.
All Patient Care Network member organizations are philosophically aligned with fundamental Hazelden Betty Ford practices that recognize and support:
The Preferred Provider Level is comprised of organizations who, together, form our high-quality national provider network designed to improve care for patients and families impacted by addiction.

The patient experience is enhanced by improving collaboration, communication and integration of care teams in working together to support the individual’s needs.
