Surrounded by Maui’s warmth and natural beauty, Aloha House provides individuals with the opportunity to make a fresh start and overcome feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and isolation. Substance abuse treatment at the drug and alcohol rehab is “client-driven,” meaning that the patients are involved in decisions about their care every step of the way. They’re treated with respect and dignity, and are regarded as human being who are in crisis, but still capable of making positive changes in their lives. AHI offers a full continuum of care, including residential treatment and outpatient services, to ensure the best results for each individual.
- Medically Monitored Detox
- Sober Support
- Discharge Planning
Client & Family Support GroupsGroup therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Individual TreatmentSome facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
