Residential treatment is a chance for people to set aside some time in a safe and stable environment for honest self-assessment of their alcohol and/or drug use, to learn about addiction, and how to live a more fulfilling life without drugs or alcohol.
Residential treatment can last from several weeks to several months depending on each person's situation. An individual treatment plan is prepared and agreed upon with input from the client. The client will then reside in our dormitory style rooms at our facility in Kaneohe, and will be expected to partake in goal setting, educational classes, group sessions, recreation and more.
Hina Mauka also treats individual with co-occurring diagnoses, such as a person with an alcohol problem and depression. To address this we develop an integrated therapy program tailored to the needs of each individual using a combination of personalized psychotherapy, group counseling and social rehabilitation.
The first step of any journey is the hardest one to take.Outpatient Programs
Not everybody needs residential treatment. Clients are placed at the least restrictive level of care because research has determined that people have a better chance of recovery if they are in familiar surroundings, such as their home environment.
This is the most intensive outpatient option. It is a full week schedule that offers the same treatment as residential. It's an option for those with a more stable home life.
The outpatient schedule is less intensive. Outpatient treatment is typically three days or nights a week for three hours per session. Outpatient treatment is offered in Kaneohe, Waipahu, and in Lihu‘e on the island of Kaua‘i.
Like our residential program, the end goal of outpatient treatment is the reintegration of the individual into society. This means helping each client to stabilize their lives while acquiring the skills necessary for living life in recovery. This is what aftercare is all about. Working in real-life situations with other real people is, perhaps, the most effective way of making that transition. Our clients participate in aftercare for up to 12 weeks following their discharge. The group meetings are once a week for one and a half hours at a time.
Hiki Ni'o Mentoring Program
To facilitate the transition from treatment to reintegration into society, caring volunteer mentors from the surrounding community lend additional support to adult clients in treatment at the Kaneohe and Waipahu clinics. Mentors meet one-on-one with program participants to encourage hope and self-confidence, to assist with accessing community resources and to set an example of the life skills and attitudes needed for participants to succeed in their recovery and personal lives. Meetings take place outside of treatment and occur once a week for 6 months. This program is voluntary and available to clients at any level of care from residential to aftercare.
Hina Mauka serves homeless people and incarcerated women through two unique programs.Serving the Homeless
Hina Mauka offers a unique service for homeless men and women at the Institute of Human Services (I.H.S.) homeless shelters at Sumner Street and Ka'aahi Street in Honolulu.
In our approach we "engage" the prospective client to help motivate them towards more extensive treatment as well as provide a more formalized low intensity outpatient treatment. Since the homeless population is unique and often challenging to work with, we do not mandate abstinence. Success is determined by their choice to seek higher levels of care. While challenging, we find that they are certainly not without hope.Working with Incarcerated Women
Hina Mauka has developed and amazing therapeutic community treatment program called Ke Alaula, at the Women's Community Correctional Center in Kailua on Oahu. Ke Alaula translates to "breaking of a new dawn", and is a culturally sensitive program based in traditional Hawaiian culture and values.
While outcomes are still being compiled in this relatively new program, everyone visiting the site readily observes the phenomenal transformation of the inmates. Ke Alaula is the result of an effective collaboration between Department of Public Safety department heads, the WCCC Warden and his staff, and the Hina Mauka.
