The mission of the Betty Ford Institute is to conduct and support collaborative programs of prevention, education and research that will lead to a reduction in the devastating effects of addictive disease on individuals – especially parents and children in family settings – as well as on organizations and communities.
As a part of the Betty Ford Institute, the Betty Ford Children's Program has been teaching kids how to cope positively with family addiction. Children learn about this disease in an age-appropriate manner. They express their feelings in healthy ways and develop problem-solving and self-care skills. They have many opportunities to simply be kids.
Planting Seeds is a publication created by our Children's Program staff for professionals who work to make a difference in the lives of the children, adults and families. We look forward to being a resource for you and those you serve.
