The Betty Ford Center will open an outpatient addiction treatment clinic in West Los Angeles in early February.
"This new site means we will be able to provide our high quality care near more people's homes, with convenient scheduling and community resources," said Jim Steinhagen, administrator of the Betty Ford Center in a press release.
A ribbon-cutting and open house will be held at 10700 Santa Monica Blvd. on Jan. 28. Renowned actor Louis Gossett, Jr. and Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz will appear at the event. The ribbon-cutting will be held at 2 p.m. and the public is invited to tour of the new facility at 3 p.m.
"The chronic disease of addiction demands multiple levels of care and accessible treatment that works," said Mark Mishek, President and CEO of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, the parent organization of the Betty Ford Center in a press release.
