24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

Tour the world-renowned Betty Ford Center for addiction treatment, 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.
