ABOUT BOBBY BENSON CENTER IN KAHUKU, HI
Bobby Benson Center, located in Kahuku, Hawaii, offers residential and outpatient treatment to adolescents struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The facility was founded in 1990 and named in honor of a fifteen year old boy who died after struggling with drug abuse. Bobby Benson Center offers treatment for co-occurring disorders to youth who are psychiatrically stable. The organization is a private non-profit.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The facility’s treatment program follows a community-based social-learning model that incorporates the 12-step method and SMART Recovery model. To be admitted, clients must be between the ages of thirteen and seventeen, must voluntarily agree to treatment, and must be mentally competent. Admission preference is given to pregnant women and intravenous drug users.
Throughout treatment, clients participate in a structured daily schedule that includes individual and group therapy, sober activities, and school work. Clients participate in group outings to local attractions every Wednesday, and beach outings on the weekend. Individual therapy methods used at Bobby Benson Center may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Life Space Crisis Intervention, and/or Trauma Informed Care. Group therapy at the facility focuses on building motivation, coping with urges, problem solving, and lifestyle balance. Families are included in the treatment program through family therapy, which aims to help family members cope and heal as a unit.
The treatment team at Bobby Benson Center includes a licensed clinical social worker, certified substance abuse counselor, and a Master of Business Administration.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility offers thirty beds for male and female clients across four separate cottages. Two cottages are for girls and two are for boys. The facility is located on Oahu’s north shore, and Bobby Benson Center’s website says the facility is “set on acres of lush tropical paradise, just minutes from pristine beaches.” Each of the four cottages are identical and contain four shared, two-person bedrooms. Each bedroom has a walk-in closet and private bathroom, and each cottage has a shared living room and adjacent therapist office. The facility states that bathrooms were renovated and air conditioning units were installed in 2013.
On the facility’s Facebook page, which it can manage, there is an overall rating of 4.3 out of five stars based on 12 total reviews. Although two reviewers gave the facility only one out of five stars, the rest of the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Alum S.C., who gave five stars, expressed gratitude to the facility. She wrote, “I went to BBC twice. Once for 4 months and once for 6 months. They accommodated me with my life long vegetarian diet. We went on fun outings, did hula, school, & therapy. I couldn't be who I am today without the therapy and support I was given here.” T.Y., another alum, said he can now work and provide for his family because of the treatment he received. He gave five stars and wrote, “Bobby benson center showed me a better way of life without drugs. The staff at BBC have become a second family to me.”
