I had previously been to two different rehab centers, and none of them compared to the experience and help I received while staying at Hawaii Island Recovery. From the excellent therapist to the comfortable home. You can tell they want to help you, and it’s not all about the money. Jimmy and the administrative staff work hard to give you the best possible treatment while still treating you like an average person. The therapist all have different styles for different people that don’t sound so scripted, making sessions feel more like everyday conversations than question after question about life. The Residential staff was terrific. They were always there to talk, and if they had a bad day, you were never able to tell because they put us before them. Nicole may be the most caring person on earth, and Kevin the biggest heart of anyone I’ve met. Lastly, the chef was excellent. She makes sure you are well fed and will accommodate what you want and not stick to the same menu. All in all, I’m glad I came to HIR and would recommend it to anybody serious about their recovery… ⁃ Jawan Z.
