The Betty Ford Center is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre for adults. It is mentioned in "Dark Knight", the first episode of Forever Knight, when Natalie Lambert castigates Nick Knight for continuing to drink blood even though she has repeatedly told him that she believes it is essential to his cure that he stop doing so. In response, he says, "I am what I am. And I don't think Betty Ford takes vampires."
The Betty Ford Center is located on the campus of the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, in the state of California in the United States. It was co-founded by former U.S. First Lady Betty Ford and Leonard Firestone in October, 1982. Ford's decision to undertake such a project followed her own battle with alcohol dependence and opioid analgesic addiction. After her release from the U.S. Naval Hospital, she pursued the goal of creating a treatment centre that emphasized the needs of women.
The Betty Ford Center has gained notoriety as the treatment centre used by many celebrities.
