The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation has rename its women’s recovery center to honor former First Lady Betty Ford. It will now be known as the Betty Ford Women’s Recovery Center.

Mrs. Ford was a women’s rights advocate during her husband’s presidency and beyond. After her own treatment for substance abuse, she founded the Betty Ford Center, which merged with Hazelden earlier this year.

“For most people under age 40, there’s not much knowledge about Mrs. Ford and her legacy,” said Mark Mishek, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation CEO. “When we agreed to this merger, one of the promises we made was to honor Mrs. Ford’s legacy, to tell a broader audience about her great courage. To cement the merger, we agreed early on to rename our Women’s Recovery Center in Mrs. Ford’s honor. It made perfect sense, because Betty was for women.”
