Treatment for substance use disorders is designed to help people stop alcohol or drug use and remain sober and drug free. Recovery is a lifelong process. Staying in recovery is a difficult task; one needs to learn new ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. Treatment can help give you the tools to accept, manage, and live a life in recovery.
When someone comes to Hina Mauka for help they will have a conversation with one of our intake counselors to assess whether they need or would benefit from treatment, and what level of treatment. Upon admission, the individual will work with a treatment team consisting of counselors, a nurse, psychiatrist and treatment associates to develop their individualized treatment plan.
The following are some of the most common elements of treatment:
Each person is provided with an assessment of their unique situation. They will be recommended to the most appropriate level of care based on their initial assessment. Some people will be recommended for residential treatment, while for others outpatient treatment may be the best approach.
Teen CARE is Hina Mauka's school-based adolescent treatment program, in which middle school and high school students receive outpatient treatment during the school day on campus. Treatment includes individual and group counseling, therapeutic recreational activities, and healthy role modeling.
The Family Program is an educational group for family and friends of people in treatment, or who possibly need of treatment. Participants learn about the disease of addiction, treatment, and their role in the recovery process.
Services are covered in part by most insurance carriers. Funding for treatment may be available for individuals meeting certain criteria through the State of Hawaii Department of Health (Alcohol & Drug Abuse Division and Adult Mental Health Division) and the Hawaii State Judiciary.
