Day Treatment ProgramDay Treatment - Weekday outpatient rehab at our Rancho Mirage campus: Evidence-based day treatment at the Betty Ford Center provides you with the most intensive level of outpatient care—and surrounds you with a multidisciplinary rehab team dedicated to your recovery. Programming takes place weekdays on our main campus in Rancho Mirage, California, with patients living at home or in nearby gender-specific sober residences staffed by the Betty Ford Center. Tailored to meet your specific needs, day treatment is an especially effective rehab option if you have experienced chronic relapse, have made multiple attempts at treatment, or are struggling with co-occurring mental health issues such as depression or anxiety.
Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
