Areas of Focus
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while the Betty Ford Center provides individualized treatment based on the patient’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug used, etc. Our programs include day treatment, intensive outpatient and outpatient services.
