Mark has been a patient at two treatment centers in my life of addiction. He stated that “In 2004, I was admitted into Hazelden / Betty Ford Treatment Center to face my addition to alcohol. I remained sober for over a year, but after not working the plan they taught me, I relapsed, and was back to my alcoholism for 6 years. In 2011, I surrendered to my addiction disorder, and voluntarily admitted myself into La Hacienda Treatment Center”.
