Why is Treatment so Successful at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation? Our patients find success in their recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol for many reasons. First, we recognize that patients come to us with varying degrees of motivation and commitment to treatment and to making the lifestyle changes necessary for building long-term recovery. That's why we customize treatment planning to meet each patient's needs and we continually assess and adjust programming, levels of care, and services based on clinical milestones. Second, treatment at all of our facilities is evidence-based. This means that there is science, data and proof that what we do to treat alcohol and drug addiction works. Third, we introduce patients to the Twelve Steps, principles and practices that help millions of people in recovery throughout the world.
