We help create a place for growth, healing and
long-term transformation.

Established in 2020, The Ohana is the newest program, and the only world-class PHP, IOP, and separate sober living recovery residence for the treatment of substance abuse on the Island of Hawaii. In creating our programs, we chose the best staff from programs across the nation and the islands of Hawaii to provide treatment for individuals in a post-pandemic world.

Our Mission

To help individuals attain long-term recovery through adventure-filled, trauma-informed, and evidence-based practices.

Our Vision

Everyone is able to find freedom from active addiction.

Our Story

The Ohana was founded in order to address gaps in the continuum of care for substance use disorders. Through various programs such as intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, sober living, and more, The Ohana helps clients strengthen healthing coping mechanisms and relationships to safely transition back to life. One of the hurdles experienced by the founder was the need for individualized care paired with the ability to continue working and staying connected with the world. The Ohana overcomes this hurdle by providing a structured environment while granting patients additional freedoms with a balance between intensive care and personal accountability. Our program is designed to help individuals heal while giving them the opportunity to continue working or going to school part-time in our care.


The meaning behind "The Ohana"

Our name, “The Ohana,” means family; it captures our commitment to building a healthy and happy community. We know that isolation and addiction go hand in hand so we treat this matter with a focus on connections. We create a family and foster an environment of loyalty, trust, and commitment to recovery, with both our clients and our staff.

What we believe about addiction and addiction recovery treatment:

  • Most addiction stems from trauma
  • Individuals benefit from structured recovery support that also allows them to practice personal accountability and stay connected to the outside world
  • Addiction is a complex disorder and is most effectively treated by professionals through a multifaceted approach
  • Isolation, a major issue of addiction can be overcome through work that re-establishes the ability to connect
  • Setting and environment play an important role in an individual’s healing
