Joe's Vault: Betty Ford in Seattle »Play Video
With the passing of Betty Ford last Friday, it seemed appropriate to reach into the vault for this interview with the former First Lady.

She was in Seattle to talk about her book, "Betty: A Glad Awakening," detailing her recovery from alcohol and pill addiction. Since the opening of the Betty Ford Center in 1982, thousands have been treated for their addictions.

Mrs. Ford was very open about her battles with alcohol and pills and hoped she could help as many as possible by sharing her story, which she did with Kathi Goertzen on March 25, 1987.
