IDAA 2007

Children and Teens


For hotel security reasons IDAA will no longer be able to be responsible for childcare ages infant through age 6. A proven agency "Parents in A Pinch" will be available for this service. You can contact them by email (, through their website (, or by phone (1-617-739-5437) and make your arrangements. Children are our greatest gift and responsibility.


IDAA is extremely pleased to be able to once again offer a children's program originating from the Betty Ford Center and facilitated by Jerry Moe. This three day program utilizes art, games, story telling, films, written exercises, role play and recreation to help youngsters build strengths and deepen their resilience. Skilled counselors lead special groups for the children. The program for kid 7-12 years of age, runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with the parents joining the children for part of the last day. All registered children are required to attend the full program. There is room for 70 kids this year. Please book early, the registration will be on a first come first served bases.

PARENTS! Plan on being there on Saturday at 3:00 pm for the Kids graduation. You won't want to miss it.


This program will be run similar to in years past. There continues to be strong support from the Al-Anon committee to make this program an enjoyable learning experience for all participants.
