What is ODA?

Opening Doors to The Arts has been around for over ten years.  Our community is made up of men and women in and around the Boston area who are Peers and interested in attending social events on a regular basis together. Friends, family members and caretakers may accompany the Peer to many of the events, depending on ticket allotments.   Membership to ODA is FREE however, we ask that you become a member of NAMI PSAN for $40.00 a year.  Those of us on fixed incomes can pay $5.00 per year.


Thank you for visiting our page!!!

Here are our guidelines:  Keep in mind that various organizations and individuals make ODA possible. They donate their time and effort to us.
They also graciously host us and often do their best to coordinate times and dates, seating arrangements and other requests we make.  Arriving 30 min before the show when tickets are in "will call".  Please keep in mind to wear clean, nice clothes. Jeans are ok. Respect venue rules such as no food in theater and cell phones off.Respect other guests by speaking to others quietly and with courtesy.  Asking ushers' assistance when dealing with seating arrangements, double bookings, etc.
Privileges to attend ODA may be revoked for rules violations.

Everyone must email a thank you letter addressed to the Venue they attended within 24 hours of the show.  All thank you letters must be sent to

Howard Trachtman, BS, CPS, CPRP COAPS, Director will orient all new members to the Program.
