Therapeutic Modalities at Hawaii Island Recovery
In our residential treatment center, clients have the opportunity to shift their focus on themselves and understand how to recover with support and a community around them. Our clients get to experience a wide variety of modalities to support them in their treatment and meet their goals.
These therapeutic modalities include:

- Experiential and cultural programming: Ocean-based experiential therapy, nature-based experiential therapy, medicine walks, and hikes
Our Experiential Therapy Modality
What clients may find unique in their treatment at Hawaii Island Recovery is our adventure therapy or experiential therapy modality. Experiential therapy is a form of group therapy designed to inspire the patient through various activities such as a hike in the rainforest, connecting with Hawaiian culture, snorkeling, or planting trees.
Experiential therapies allow clients to connect with their surroundings through nature while also using their bodies and minds. This type of immersive therapy creates connection, community, engagement with peers, and the opportunity to reconnect ultimately with yourself.
Benefits of Experiential Therapy
There are several benefits to experiential therapy that a client can experience, including:
- Connection with peers
- Positive feelings of inspiration and upliftment
- Emotional processing of past trauma and programming
- Ability to express yourself through movement
- Identify obstacles and how to problem solve
- Connect to the present moment
- Move through stuck thought patterns or reframe beliefs
- Increase confidence and self-esteem
- Improved communication
- Ability to cope with stress more effectively
When clients come to Hawaii Island Recovery, they have a variety of experiential therapies to explore, from ocean-based therapy where they can snorkel or wildlife watch at the magical beaches of Hawaii. The opportunities experiential therapy at Hawaii Island Recovery offers are like no other, making for a serene and therapeutic experience.
Why Experiential Therapy?
Experiential therapy can be very therapeutic for clients and help them process unresolved issues and complex emotions and confront fears, insecurities, and grief. This unique therapy allows clients to express themselves and share, especially when it can be hard to talk about painful times.
This therapy can provide a safe space to open up while engaged in an activity such as a hike, connecting with animals, or being near water.
A Day in the Life at Hawaii Island Recovery
When a client arrives at Hawaii Island Recovery, we work together to create a personalized plan to fit their needs. A typical day for a client starts with the most important meal of the day, breakfast.
After breakfast, we meet for a practice called “On Awakening Intentions” for a half-hour. Once our intentions are clear and set, we transition into our experiential therapy activity for the first half of the day, including ocean-based therapy, nature walks, or reforestation of native plants.
After experiential therapy, a healthy lunch is served by our onsite chef. After lunch, clients will participate in acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga, or a process group. In the last part of the day, clients have dinner and attend a recovery meeting, be it Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, with a final Tenth Step wrap-up before lights out.
Clients have the opportunity to explore the Hawaiian culture of Aloha and learn the tools to cultivate and sustain a healthy lifestyle with our holistic mind-body, spirit approach.
