About Hawaii Island Recovery

Residential Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Facility for Adults

Hawaii Island Recovery, the Big Island’s premiere residential substance abuse rehabilitation facility for adults, offers a comprehensive treatment program in a tranquil and healing environment. Providing the best evidence-based treatment, medically supervised detox, and holistic and experiential therapies, Hawaii Island Recovery combines the most effective treatment modalities to support long term sobriety. With a low client-to-staff ratio, we offer individualized care provided by a professional staff in a supervised environment.

Progressive Treatment for Addiction,Trauma, Depression and Chronic Pain

Hawaii Island Recovery believes our exquisite natural environment works in concert with our treatment program to support the recovery process. In fact, Native Hawaiians refer to the Big Island as “The Healing Island”. Thousands of miles from the mainland, it is the largest and youngest island in the Hawaiian chain. Its unique topography offers breath-taking diversity – from pristine beaches, lush rain forests and active lava flows to snow-capped mountains and vibrant coral reefs. Providing progressive treatment in an idyllic location, Hawaii island Recovery adheres to the philosophy that a serene environment is conducive to healing the wounds of addiction, trauma, depression and chronic pain.

Unique Dolphin-Assisted Psychoterapy Program

Integral to Hawaii Island Recovery’s treatment program are therapies and recreational activities that interface our clients with the natural wonders of the Big Island. From our unique Dolphin-Assisted Psychotherapy program that takes place in our warm coastal waters, to our experiential nature-based therapy, which may take place in a rainforest, a lava tube or a remote beach, Hawaii Island Recovery encourages interaction with our natural environment to foster feelings of serenity and connection, and inspire our clients to embrace life. Weekend activities are designed to promote relaxation and reflection and provide clients with an opportunity to process the week’s work. They are also intended to be fun! Clients may opt for a hike, snorkeling, or a trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see the world's most active lava flow.
