Virtual Children's Program

All Hazelden Betty Ford Locations


Children hugging




Kids need to know they're not the cause of their parent's alcohol or drug addiction. They also need skills for making their own healthy choices. That's what we teach-- and we make it fun!


The Virtual Children’s Program blends learning and play through developmentally appropriate content and activities. With the care and guidance of highly trained counselors, children get to know one another through fun group activities. Kids are also empowered to express themselves in healthy ways.


In the Virtual Children's Program Families from around the world can participate in this 2-day (3-hours each day) virtual workshop in support of children impacted by the disease of addiction. Children ages 7–12 and at least one safe caregiver will participate separately as they learn age-appropriate language around substance use disorder and recovery. In a small group format, kids and caregivers will connect with others in similar situations and be given opportunities to share their own feelings and experiences


Children will learn about addiction, in a child-friendly way, heavy feelings and how to let them out, safe people, self-care and how it can NEVER be a child’s fault.
