Our theme this year is The Jumping Off Place - the start of our transformation. Whether in a moment or a gradual evolution, the gift of recovery transforms us from the spiritual, mental, and physical hell of addiction. We are looking forward to great speakers. If this is your first IDAA, you are going to be amazed, and way before you are half way through! There are many speaker and discussion meetings, as well as smaller "breakout" sessions, both for the newcomer and the the not-so-newcomer. Be prepared for an incredible boost to your recovery. You will be transformed.
The Al-Anon program will include meetings with a speaker/discussion format. Topics will include the twelve steps and recovery oriented information and issues. Opportunities will be available for AA/Al-Anon couples to participate in couples groups. A program that meets the needs of the newcomer and the experienced Al-Anon will be available.
Check back to this page of the web site for more specifics on Speakers and schedules as time gets closer to convention.
Created for many IDAA participants who have moved through the Teen years and wanted a program structured to their desires. They have developed a very interesting series of meetings.
FOOD AND FELLOWSHIP
A favorite part of the annual IDAA conventions is the fellowship at the luncheons and banquets.
Wednesday evening there will be a welcome reception with sandwiches and conversation.
Thursday evening is the newcomers Banquet. This is a wonderful experience for all the newcomers to be able to experience just how important they are.
Friday noon - The Al-Anon luncheon is an opportunity for all to hear current happenings with those in the Al-Anon program. Also it's an excellent chance to hear a peer selected speaker from the Teen program.
Saturday evening will be the formal banquet. This is a very happy and spiritual time for all as many will be recognized for their service. Semi-formal attire is most common for this affair. You'll be welcome regardless.
Last of all with be the Spiritual brunch on Sunday morning.
