Addictions are a painful reminder that human life is fragile and vulnerable. It can ruin the lives of troubled souls and the ones they are close to. Families, communities, and even societies have been ravaged by addictions and merely having strong laws or strict punishments won’t end this damaging behaviour. The stigma, shame, and negativity towards addiction makes recovery very difficult for many who want a way out of this dilemma. This is why recovery is not just a challenge, but a humbling journey in which love, compassion, and empathy are necessary to help anyone come out of the abyss of abusing alcohol or drugs. Compassion, love, support, and encouragement is key to help all.
The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation was formed after the merger of the Hazelden Foundation (Est 1949) and The Betty Ford Centre (Est 1982) merged in 2014 in collectively helping all addicts recover and find true purpose and meaning to their lives. The Foundation strongly believes in helping recovery without the stigma, shame, and negativity surrounding addiction as is often seen in society. Numerous centres have been established across the United States to ensure addicts have all the medical, psychological, and human support they need to prevail on their personal hardships regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. Both Federal and State governments across the USA have fully supported our initiatives to help battle addictions and give people a chance to live their lives the way it should be.
The foundation’s own bookstore – Hazelden Bookstore – has a wide collection of literature and media available for understanding addiction and how to help.
There are specific titles by renowned experts and practitioners to not only help recovering addicts reclaim their lives and loved ones, but also help educate the public and students of all ages raising awareness towards addictions to shun past prejudices and stigmas. There is also a section dedicated with academic resources for those interested addiction and various treatments associated with recovery through the lens of behavioural sciences. Plus there is the Teen Intervene program by renowned academic Ken C. Winters with a bonus DVD helping the youth identify, understand, and help those showing signs of addictions.
With such a huge resource available for patients, doctors, family members, educations, young adults, and students, Hazelden Bookstore is doing society a great service in sync with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. Only when we overcome our own personal prejudices and stigmas can we help ourselves and others to overcome their inner demons and live life to the fullest. Please browse through our wide selections of books, journals, guides, illustrations, and digital media to help people who need it the most in our society and community.
