Very Good
Facility has a long standing reputation for it's outpatient programs. Affiliation with Betty Ford has necessitated alignment with 12-step program. Honestly, many of the principles are archaic. Some qualified caring staff members. VERY expensive, and financial person will under estimate your costs. Expect a HUGE invoice. The key benefit is the support groups - other memeers are the most insightful / helpful.

Hazelden provided a comprehensive approach to rehab that allowed me to build a new life without alcohol. I replaced my alcohol addiction with productive use of time. I emerged a better person. Strengths include: facilities, sense of community, and professional and accommodating faculty. Somewhat expensive, but the results are worth it.
