Making Inroads Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our donors, 2019 was a recordsetting year across the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation in helping people find freedom from addiction. More than 25,000 patients—the most in our history—received care through our treatment, recovery and family services. Beyond providing direct, in-person care, we worked in partnership with other health care organizations, researchers, educators and recovery advocates to forge new inroads in delivering healing and hope to more people, in new ways, with the latest science and proven-effective practices.
