Recovery Coast to Coast

Apr 20, 2023

It was 45 years ago this month that Former First Lady Betty Ford went into treatment for her alcoholism and addiction to painkillers, following an intervention. Some 4 years later, in the summer of 1982, Neil Scott, who was then the editor of 'Alcoholism & Addiction Magazine,' visited Mrs. Ford at her home in Rancho Mirage. Neil was doing a cover story on Mrs. Ford's recovery. This was well before the opening of the Betty Ford Center at Eisenhower Hospital!

Recently, Neil found the recording of that exclusive interview that was done some 41 years ago, which is being shared on today's podcast.

Actress Ali McGraw will close out the podcast with some thoughts on affirming honesty!
