Healing Children Ages 7-12 Affected by Drug and Alcohol Addictions Children are usually the first hurt and the last helped when a family is hit with addiction. Involving parents and other caregivers in the recovery process for their children creates the best possible opportunity for healing for the whole family. With this in mind, the Five Star Kids program was launched in Texas in 1998 with the enthusiastic support of a group of Betty Ford Center alumni. The three-day program has been offered throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas metroplex in both community and school settings. Home base for the Five Star Kids program is Irving, Texas (Las Colinas). We believe in strong partnerships and work with numerous alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs, agencies and professional organizations to help create a network of support for children who love someone with alcohol or drug addiction.
