Client Testimonials

"The Ohana has saved my life! Every staff member was a huge support system for me! Thanks to them, I was able to make better decisions on what’s best for my recovery first. This time I listened to all the suggestions they gave me and walked through the fear and came out stronger. The sober community here is amazing and I highly recommend The Ohana!" - Adam L.
"The Ohana Addiction Treatment Center showed me where my addiction began. They opened my eyes to the trauma I endured as a person. Not only did they help me find this on my own, they helped me find a way to heal from it. Drinking helped numb my pain and The Ohana helped me find the solutions to cope with it. I will forever be grateful for my time at The Ohana and I am truly thankful for all of the therapists, counselors, doctors, and staff as a whole. They truly helped me find my full potential and helped me become the person I always wanted to be." - Terrance M.
"My stay at the Ohana recovery center was a quick decision for which I will forever be grateful. From the welcoming, to the group therapy, to the adventures, to the bittersweet goodbye, this place met me where I started and helped me move forward on my path. I found myself entirely, as I felt I hadn't found my identity or maybe lost it along the way. The staff and the other clients at this center treated me with respect and kindness and showed me the practice of Ohana. I give the Ohana all the stars in the galaxy. Truly, thank you! My recovery formed in your care, and now I hold my future in strong hands." - Mariah K.
"I can’t even express how grateful I am for this place. I came here without hope and no longer wanting to live. This place, the staff, clients, and experiences truly saved my life. With my family being from the islands getting to connect back to my roots was so special to me. The education of the Hawaiian culture, hula, and rituals we did all over the island were so healing and connected me back to spirit. Mahalo nui loa to The Ohana for giving me my life back and reminding me who I am and what I have to live for." - Lindsay M.
"I checked out of The Ohana in mid June after spending 45 days. It's been several months of great highs and bad lows. But, I do believe that I am still here and currently doing very well thanks to my time at Ohana, and the tools they gave me. My time there was the first time in years I was able to experience my love of life without alcohol. The journey continues, but I wouldn’t be on it still today without my time in Kona with Ohana." - Matthew K.
"Man, where do I began to speak about The Ohana? First I would like to personally thank each and everyone at the Ohana, and I would like to name each of them out, because they played a huge part in getting me on my road to recovery. Michelle, Joseph, Laurna, Genesis, Lee, David, Allison, Coe, Dana , and last but not least Derwin. I personally thank you all for the support, encouragement, and the opportunity to learn to live a sober life. I came into the Ohana a lost individual, and I left there as a man that found his identity by doing deep work in discovering, uncovering, and discarding a lot of trauma. From the moment I got to the Ohana, I felt welcomed and surrounded by people who genuinely cared, and it made it easy to be open and honest. During my 60 day stay at the Ohana I learned the true meaning of family, and I created a bond with a group of people that will last a lifetime. This by far was the best choice I could have made for my recovery, and I will never forget this experience and where my recovery in life begin. Once you join the Ohana, it's a life long thing and I take honor in now being an Alumni of the Ohana. Thank you Ohana!" - Jay M.
"This is a great place to go if you are seeking help with drugs or alcohol and the staff is absolutely amazing and they really do care. The thing I liked most about the program is how much I learned about addiction and the trauma that fed into it for me. Truly helped change my life. Thank you Ohana." - Leroy B.
"The Ohana Addiction Treatment Center gave me the ability to look at my Complex Trauma as stepping stones to healing and not a death sentence. Drinking was a solution to silence the pain but once removed with the right coping skills learned at The Ohana I was able to conquer the lies, dark nights and false mindset created by trauma. The place is so healing and beneficial if you are willing to put in the hard work. This place is truly my Ohana. Mahalo to all the therapists, counselors, and employees at the Ohana. Best decision I have made for myself." - Zabeth C.
"Wonderful facility, extremely knowledgeable caring staff will put you or your loved one on the right track for success in fighting addiction. Thank you Ohana for all you do!" - Hector J.
""Very healing program. Very grateful for their help." - Gary F.

Referral Testimonials

Imagine a stunning sanctuary of healing but then add in a really solid recovery program and that is what The Ohana is. A lot of places promise a safe and private environment but this place really means it. I’ve helped locate some of my “high end” and “well known” clients in treatment before, and because of their notoriety they desired real anonymity and the facility offered that while still providing close proximity to the ocean, adventures and shops nearby. A lot of places offer luxury and fun to their clients but those places usually forget the main reason people go to treatment which is recovery from addiction. The Ohana has all of the bells and whistles but at the end of the day they really are all about recovery. From their meditation and yoga program to the group and 1 on 1 therapy it is really top notch. Above the door there was a sign that said Ohana (which means family) and it’s true. They treat everyone with respect and like family and because they are exclusive with only 6 or so people in recovery at a time people have the ability to get to know and support one another while still maintaining privacy and personal. Mahalo to everyone at The Ohana. I will definitely be sending more clients your way in the near future. I appreciate your commitment to providing a real welcoming place to begin healing."
