"Hazelden's Center for Public Advocacy is dedicated to changing public perceptions about addiction and promoting public policy that puts recovery within reach of all who need it," said Mark Mishek, president and CEO of Hazelden. "The good news is - effective treatment for addiction exists, people in recovery lead useful lives and insurance could, and should, cover addiction treatment. Let's work together to help improve public understanding of America's No. 1 health problem - addiction to alcohol and other drugs."
Hazelden, a national nonprofit organization founded in 1949, has helped tens of thousands of people reclaim their lives from the disease of addiction. With plans to celebrate its 60th Anniversary this year, Hazelden offers the nation's most comprehensive approach to addiction by addressing the full range of patient, family, and professional needs, including treatment and continuing care for youth and adults, research, higher learning, public education and advocacy, and publishing. It has facilities in Minnesota, Oregon, Illinois and New York. For more information, visit www.hazelden.org
