When it comes to recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health disorders, having a multi-faceted support system is crucial for treatment. At Hawaii Island Recovery, we offer many types of support within one’s treatment plan and connect individuals to community-based support to foster connection and healing outside of the facility too. 

What Is Community-Based Support? 

Community-based support is a type of support that is local to the community someone is residing in and connected to. The value of community-based support is significant, as it provides opportunities for individuals to connect with others in the community in which they live. Community connections support healing and add to the overall wellness an individual experiences, as it helps them reach their goals as they foster a sense of safety and belonging with others who have common goals and interests as they do. 

Community-Based Support at Hawaii Island Recovery 

At Hawaii Island Recovery, we offer several types of community-based support to meet each individual where they are and what type of support may make the most sense for them in their journey of and goals for recovery. Types of community-based support individuals can expect to be a part of include: 

  • 12-Step programming and meeting participation to provide supportive recovery meetings through the structure and steps of the traditional 12-Steps methodology 
  • Dharma recovery meetings for recovery meetings from a Buddhist-inspired perspective 
  • SMART recovery literature to integrate psychoeducation into treatment and approach healing through a holistic lens
  • “Upon Awakening” daily house meetings to prepare for the day ahead
  • “Before We Retire” evening house meetings to reflect on the day before it ends

These types of community-based support are integrated throughout the Hawaii Island Recovery treatment experience, whether it be residential treatment or outpatient and aftercare. In beginning treatment at our facility, individuals meet with their treatment team to collaboratively discuss their goals for recovery and create a program that supports their healing and recovery.

Treatment Services at Hawaii Island Recovery

Most substance use disorder treatment programs begin with a period of supervised medical detox. This phase of treatment is important as it supports individuals in detoxing from any active substances in their system before continuing treatment. It is also important to undergo this experience with professionals who are trained in the detox process to keep both the individual who is detoxing and those around them as safe as possible. Many individuals find detox to be an especially challenging part of recovery, as withdrawing from substances can cause high levels of both physical and emotional distress.

After supervised medical detox, individuals frequently enter residential treatment at the same facility where they completed their detox in order to smoothly transition from one level of treatment to the next. At Hawaii Island Recovery, we offer medically supervised detox followed by our residential treatment program to allow for ease in transition from the first phase of treatment to a structured, residential format of treatment. Before individuals begin their treatment plan, they meet with their treatment team to discuss their story, their history with substance use and any mental health disorders, as well as their goals and desires for recovery. As each person is at a different place in their recovery, what treatment looks like for each person will be different. Because of this, it’s important for our team at Hawaii Island Recovery to meet each individual where they are and support them in ways that align with their goals and needs. 

After residential treatment, most individuals continue to receive support through outpatient and aftercare services. It’s highly recommended that individuals continue treatment after residential programming, as the transition from a residential treatment program back into real life can be challenging. During this phase of treatment, individuals are supported as they reintegrate into their lives without the structure of residential treatment. This part of treatment can help individuals continue to put their recovery first, as they gain more confidence and responsibilities in their everyday life. This transition can be stressful, and because of the stress and anxiety that change can bring, having continuing support is all the more important to learn new ways of coping with stress. Without aftercare and outpatient treatment after high levels of care, the risk of relapse becomes more likely.
