Hazelden Betty Ford - Center City, MN Accredited
A Proven Leader in Inpatient and Outpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment
Beginning in 1949, at a picturesque lakeside retreat near Center City, Minnesota, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's earliest clinicians developed the addiction treatment approach most widely used in the world today—originally known as the Minnesota Model of care. Combining expert medical care with then-emerging Twelve Step mutual support practices, alcohol and drug addiction treatment at the pioneering Hazelden facility was, above all, provided with empathy and respect. Today, the flagship drug rehab center continues to lead the way forward with evidence-based treatment practices and research-informed approaches, provided with the respectful, compassionate care that has set our programs apart from the start.
We are a force of healing and hope for individuals, families and communities affected by addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
