Case management

For most addicts, their addiction was a behavioral pattern established over many years. Similarly, breaking these patterns can take repetition and time. Hawaii Island Recovery highly recommends that our clients enter into a Sober Living Program as a part of their transition from residential treatment to the “real” world. Sober living programs are a great benefit to individuals who have just concluded a stay in residential treatment because it allows them to assimilate back into society while still participating in “Out Patient” services through Hawaii Island Recovery. While generally speaking, sober living facilities are less restrictive than residential treatment, they ensure accountability and provide structure and support to those in early recovery. This enables clients to practice sobriety and hone their tools. Hawaii Island Recovery will assist discharging clients to transition into an appropriate sober living facility that best meets their needs.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • HIR has created and environment with structure and support when needed.

    One of the most beneficial therapies happened off-site-out-of-the-office. We had the opportunity to do therapeutic work in nature. For me, being in nature allowed me to heal with out the stigma of an office setting.
    Charlie, Client
  • A successful 30 day rehab and detox from pain pills and cocaine

    I have never been to rehab in my life and I was so afraid of detox and being miserable without pills and drugs. I wish I came to HIR sooner because they made it so easy for me. If you or a family member is considering treatment I will highly suggest Hawaii Island Recovery they have the best staff to accommodate your needs and are very compassionate and accommodating.

  • I have overcome my fear of socialization

    We all have bad days, ones where we feel alone, or afraid, but here at Hawaii Island Recovery we are never alone and we can face our fears. I have overcome my fear of socialization, even the fear of loneliness. HIR has allowed me to not be so nervous, afraid. It also gave me skills, such as public speaking, giving me positive energy and adding more structure in my life to make me feel like I am not abusing this perfect life that was given to me all along.

  • Hawaii Island Recovery is a life-changing program

    HIR helped me regain my mental, spiritual and physical strength. I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for me and for my new found life. I can’ t thank HIR enough for their endless guidance, support, compassion, and aloha that they have freely given to me. Thank you for saving my life. HIR. My family and I will never forget how amazing this experience was.
    Sharon, Client
  • Within 72 Hours I was in Hawaii

    I put in very little research into what rehabilitation center I went to. I did decide I wanted to get away from what I thought was a lifestyle. After opening up to my sister. Within 72 Hours I was in Hawaii. When my sister told me I could go to treatment in Hawaii I felt I was undeserving. Sure HIR had a great location. Their therapy helped me understand my addiction and gave me coping skills to get my life back. I was very fortunate to have a great group of People who became my friends in recovery. After the intense therapy, an excursion and laughter were well needed to process I am grateful for this opportunity.

  • I have never felt so secure

    As I came in I was confused, not knowing what to expect. As the day's followed I settled in with 100% focus on why I was here. I have never felt so secure of my surrounding and the group of professional I shared my feeling, thoughts, secrets,  life's ups, and downs, with the time spent here I encompassed and learned so many tools for me to practice for the rest of my life. I am so much freeier, open, honest, and ready and willing to live this new adventure in sobriety. I would highly recommend this treatment facility to anyone needing guidance and direction hope and a new way of life. I can’t thank this place enough  for building such a strong foundation from a structure that was falling apart and missing so many elements to succeed as “normal.”

  • Recovery has provided a life that at one point did not seem possible

    There is something special about this Island and the people here. Kona, the HIR program and the AA fellowship had a life-changing effect on me. So much so, that I decided to move from Tennessee and make Hawaii my home. It was the best decision I have ever made for myself. Recovery has provided a life that at one point did not seem possible. I’m happier and healthier than I have ever been to. I feel blessed to be able to give back to the program that gave so much to me.
