Programs For a Variety of Clients
Betty Ford Center has more than just inpatient and outpatient programs, although it has those too. The organization caters to a wide range of demographics, including programs for kids and families affected by a loved one’s addiction, young adult addicts, professionals who are addicts, and more. This makes Betty Ford Center a viable option for patients in different walks of life.
The 12-step model has been widely used and has proven to be very effective for several clients, so for the most part, it works as a pro that Betty Ford Center implements the 12 steps into its rehabilitation programs. In a word, this program is thorough. It helps addicts explore several different facets of their addiction and rebuild their lives in positive ways. Using the 12-step model also means adding accountability and continued support to the recovery process, which gives patients a higher chance of success.
Inpatient Program Schedule
The inpatient program at the Betty Ford Center is also very thorough. Through it, residents have a relatively regimented schedule every day, which includes medication, training about preventing relapses, fitness, and support group time. In many ways, this is an advantage to the client because a regimented schedule can lead to healthier habits and a healthier lifestyle. With structure and positive activities, addicts can rebuild themselves confidently.

Lack of Pricing Information
Betty Ford Center does not disclose program pricing information on its website.
Most addicts will struggle with their addictions for a lifetime, so having continual assistance even after in/outpatient care can be very helpful in the recovery process. Unfortunately, Betty Ford Center does not offer aftercare.
