ABOUT LOKAHI TREATMENT CENTERS
Lokahi Treatment Centers (LTC) is a nonprofit that operates six treatment facilities across Hawaii. The facilities are located in Hilo, Honoka’a, Kailua Kona, Kohala, Pahoa, and Waikoloa. The Hilo facility, located on the Big Island, provides outpatient treatment programs for adults and adolescents seeking treatment for Substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The Hilo location also offers anger management and domestic violence intervention (DVI) programs.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before participating in Lokahi Treatment Centers’ (LTC) treatment programs, clients undergo an initial substance abuse and psychiatric assessment. If applicable, LTC also conducts anger management and DVI assessments. Clients are referred to the individual treatment programs needed to address each client’s issues.
Treatment focuses on establishing an environment based on harmony, balance, personal responsibility, individual dignity, and self-esteem. Each client receives individual attention while also attending group sessions. Clients work with counselors to identify and address problem behaviors that contribute to addiction. Adult group sessions are gender-specific, but adolescent groups are co-ed. Medication management is also available as needed.
Clients participate in topic-specific group activities as well to learn more about each topic and to develop coping skills. These topics include anger management and domestic violence prevention. Clients can participate in multiple groups based on their individual assessment.
Assessments and evaluations are available for clients to identify their specific conditions. Recommendations and referrals to other facilities with specialized treatment programs are available when needed.
Family involvement is strongly encouraged throughout the treatment process. Family and couples counseling is available as needed to maintain family connections and support networks.
CARF-accredited, Lokahi Treatment Centers employs a team of accredited substance abuse counselors and a program medical director, Lokahi House is supervised by an on-site manager, and the organization offers internships and volunteer opportunities.
