Founded in 1949 at a Minnesota lakeside farmhouse, Hazelden grew into one of the world's largest and most respected private not-for-profit alcohol and drug addiction treatment providers, paving the way for its 2014 merger with the Betty Ford Center.

How are Addiction Treatment Outcomes Measured?

With diabetes, hypertension and most other chronic illnesses, the impact of treatment services can be measured through the patient's blood sugar readings, lipid levels or other physiological factors indicating change, healing and improvement. That's not the case with addiction treatment. There aren't clear-cut physiological indicators or lab tests that demonstrate whether the disease is subsiding or the patient is healing.

Instead, addiction treatment outcomes can be assessed across a variety of clinical, quality of life and behavioral domains. The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation measures and reports treatment outcomes based on patient follow-up data relating to length of sobriety, quality of life and aftercare compliance.

At multiple intervals following treatment, Butler Center for Research staff at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation collect patient data related to a variety of factors, including:

Number of days continually abstinent
  • Physical health
  • Mental health
  • Quality of relationships
  • Level of functioning in career/job/school
  • Quality of social life
  • Compliance with after-care recommendations
  • Additional healthcare service utilization
