I am in my third full-time semester of Hazelden Betty Ford's Integrated Recovery for Co-Occurring Disorders program and I have very impressed, both the with the quality of education provided by instructors and in the interaction I have had with peers. As a former alcohol and drug counselor pursuing mental health licensure, I have been delighted by the integration of course material on both mental health and substance use disorders and their treatment. I would recommend this program to others.

Substance Abuse Counseling
I am just beginning my education at Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies. I have recently finished the orientation course and am VERY impressed with the attention to teaching in various formats at varying difficulty levels. The Professors appear to take a genuine interest in how you learn best as well as how well prepared you are for the program. I have already recommended others to look into this program!

The Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies is a progressive and riggorous program. It was an honor to become a student in their Addiction Studies with Integrated Co-Occuring Disorders program. Not only am a graduate student there, but I am also alumni of their treatment program for health care professionals. I was a nurse for 15 years and became addicted to opiates and alcohol. When I arrived, I was near death. Slowly over the course of the treatment program, I found myself. I then moved into a sober living facility after completing addiction treatment. Within nine months, I was asked to be the manager. I availed myself of the responsibility and continued to live there for nine more months. Then, it was time to get my children back. After I moved out into my own apartment with my children (I got them back 50 percent of the time), I was asked to manage two of the sober houses without the requirement that I live there. During this time, I went back to get my BA from Southern New Hampshire University. Upon completion, I applied to Hazelden Graduate School. I am proud that I will someday join the ranks of the counselors that were trained at Hazelden Grad School. Because of my extreme financial need, I would be honored to recieve this scholarship and promise to put it to good use.
