About The Salvation Army - Addiction Treatment Services

Reviewed by Our Contributors


Located in a residential neighborhood of Honolulu, The Salvation Army of the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands offers a variety of health and human services for community members in need. Addiction Treatment Services, one of those such programs, focuses on providing treatment and support for people who are struggling with substance abuse. While separate programs treat parenting mothers and provide gender-specific rehab for men, Addiction Treatment Services works with all people, regardless of sex, race, age, or creed. Alongside outpatient treatment, programming includes one of the just 18 (10.3 percent) residential treatment services in the state and is one of the only six (3.2 percent) with detox services available.


For those who require treatment for withdrawal symptoms, the center provides detoxification services. The program uses a “social” model where facilitators provide support and a safe environment, but no medication is administered. The detox process typically lasts between four and seven days.

According to the center’s website, all programming provides counseling services, as well as any basic human necessities required for “physical rehabilitation and spiritual regeneration.” The center’s outpatient offering is best suited to the “still-functioning” individual. Programming is highly structured, and sessions are offered during the day and in the evening.

The organization’s residential program provides a more individualized approach to treatment, and the duration of care varies according to each client’s needs.

    I entered this facility in May 1999 for an addiction to alcohol. I stayed for one month. I found it an extremely rewarding experience, I was introduced to AA and NA. The staff was friendly, understanding, knowledgable and helpful. As of April 2019, I have been sober for 20 yrs. My life is full and I enjoy my family and have been the best Father, husband, friend, and owner of my own business because of the steps I learned for dealing with my addiction at this facility.

    Strengths include Rules Meals Group meetings Medical needs. Weaknesses: no family allowed to visit I went here but it didn't stay longer than a month because of the fact that my child could not stay with me. They should allow mother and her children the help both need
