Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Program
Institution Affiliation




Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Program
Hazelden Foundation is a drug abuse treatment organization that deals mostly with
alcohol and it was started back in the year 1949. It is considered as one of the oldest drug abuse
treatment organization that exists. It has its headquarters in the City of Minnesota and has
facilities in the following towns: Illinois, New York City, Minnesota, Beaverton, Newberg,
Chicago, Naples in Florida. Hazelden Foundation focuses on assessing and treating in-house
patients and offers services to outpatients too. Hazelden Foundation goes further to follow up on
the progress of the patients that have checked out after completion of the program and give the
patient’s family a program that could help them support the patient into successfully becoming
whole again and not fall back into the old habits. The Hazelden foundation’s program has been
hugely successful over the years that their previous patients have given testimonials on how
effective the program is. One previous patient of Hazelden even went ahead to write a bestselling
novel, A Million Pieces, that spoke of how effective the program was to him personally. The
effectiveness of the program has seen other foundations seek collaboration with Hazelden
Foundation. For instance, Betty Ford Foundation collaborated with Hazelden Foundation to
come up with Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, so that the Betty Ford Foundation patients can
also get the excellent Twelve Steps abstinence-based treatment.
When Hazelden Foundation started in 1949, its scope was confined to helping male
alcoholics overcome alcoholism. The program was based on the Alcoholism Anonymous
program, the Twelve Steps (Anderson, McGovern, & DuPont, 1999). These twelve steps are what
the Hazelden Foundation still uses to today and it demands of the drug addict to themselves want
to heal. It has to be the effort of the patient and those around him only facilitate the healing



Treatment program overview

The following are the Twelve Steps in the program that a patient needs to adhere to:

I agree that alcohol has become powerful over me and I have become

powerless over alcohol that I could no longer manage my life.

I came to realize that I am strong such that I can trace my steps back to the

normal life.

I made a decision to let not my will but God’s to be done in my life as I

continued to understand him.

I made the decision to continually asses my morals courageously and

honestly agree when I noticed I was wrong.

I admitted my specific wrongs to myself, God and another person


I am fully ready to have God to take away any defects that affect my


I request God with humility to cleanse me of problems and weaknesses.


I made a list of all the people I had harmed and became willing to

make amends with them all.

I made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when in

making amends with them, they will be harmed or those around them would be harmed.

I will continue to take the personal assessment, and immediately admit

when I am wrong and seek forgiveness where necessary.

I will always seek God through prayer and meditation to improve my

conscious contact with God as I continue to understand Him, praying only for
knowledge of His will for me and the power to carry that out.



Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, I will try to

carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all my affairs (Dennis
et al., 2013).

Determine and discuss the intended program activities, target

population, intervention, and intended outcomes.

The program was originally designed to help .alco...
