Betty Ford Center Starts Expansion
On May 4, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation broke ground on its expansion of the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The four-year, $30 million project will grow the center from 137,200 square feet to 170,000 square feet and increasing the residential capacity. Chris Yadron, Ph.D., vice president of recovery services for Hazelden Betty Ford’s West Region and administrator of the Betty Ford Center, says, “More space means room for more people to heal.”
