Roots of Addiction Treatment
John Driscoll, senior VP of Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, shares 30 years of experience.
John Driscoll is the senior vice president of Recovery Services at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. He began his career in 1991, working with homeless addicted women (and their children) at St. Martin de Porres House of Hope, in Chicago. The program had been founded by his aunt and a dedicated Catholic nun, Sr. Therese O’Sullivan. It is there he learned the roots of addiction treatment. John Driscoll now oversees all clinical services for Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation nationwide. He also serves on the board of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers. John has worked in the treatment field for three decades and is a licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Jeff Jay and John have a lively discussion on John’s roots in the addiction field, the history of the field, Dan Anderson, Hazelden, and the power of the recovering people.
