We believe that addiction is a complex disorder and is most effectively treated by professionals through a biopsychosocial approach which takes into consideration biological, psychological, and socio-environmental factors. By approaching addiction through this multifaceted lens we are able to get to the root cause or, the “why,” people abuse substances. Our staff is trained in the clinical aspects of addiction recovery and works tirelessly to lead all individuals who come through our doors in their journey to wellness.

At The Ohana, our clients participate in customized addiction treatment plans that incorporate both our medical and holistic approaches. Clients overcome fears and build peer to peer relationships through adventure therapy; connect mind-body-spirit using holistic therapy modalities; and learn to understand internal motivation and develop healthy coping skills through various evidence-based practices.

Our treatment program is primarily composed of the following therapies: dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and psychodynamic therapy. It is supplemented by holistic treatments including yoga, exercise therapy, massage therapy, meditation, nutritional therapy, ecopsychology, and adventure therapy. Each of our clients participates in a customized treatment plan designed to help them face the unique circumstances of their addiction and develop the ability to face life without the influence of substances.

Much of the work that our clients do is held in group settings. Clients also work with their therapists one-on-one weekly. When clients are not attending group therapy programs, they are participating in yoga, meditation, or adventures across the island; clients are encouraged to go to meetings, seek employment, or have sober fun in Kona. IOP provides clients with a smooth transition from a 24/7 residential treatment setting to continuing their journey of recovery and living a happy and sober life in a less restrictive environment. Family members can rest assured that their loved ones are getting the drug and alcohol treatment needed to make a lasting change and have the best chance of attaining long-term recovery.
