Betty Ford was a pioneer in substance abuse treatment. The Betty Ford Clinic is world famous, and most treatment centers are built upon some of the same philosophies and treatment models that they made commonplace. The world lost a great woman, but fortunately her work lives on.

Those of us here at Serenity Acres are certainly thankful for being able to treat addiction as a disease, not a weakness or character flaw. We have Betty Ford to thank for bringing this knowledge to the forefront. RIP Betty. Thank you for everything.
