Elizabeth Farver, MAAC


Betsy is recently retired after 12 years with the Betty Ford Center and four subsequent years with Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. She is a 2002 graduate of The Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies. In her work, she served in both clinical and philanthropic leadership positions, as well as overseeing alumni services for HBFF. Although she formally retired at the end of 2017, Betsy knew she “wasn’t done” giving back and helping others begin the path to recovery.

“I’m thrilled to be asked to be a part of the place where my mother began her sober journey in 1985, where I attended her family program, and the seed was planted. Harmony has a special place in my heart and it is the perfect fit for me to continue my service to others, both in the non profit sector and within the clinical model. I’m beyond grateful.”
