0 Reviews

CARE was founded in 1999 to provide mental health services to children, adolescents and adults through a network of mental health professionals committed to best practices in service delivery. CARE Hawaii is a behavioral healthcare organization providing a variety of behavioral health services throughout the State of Hawaii. Services are provided to individuals throughout the lifespan, from childhood, adolescence, and adulthood to senior citizens.

CARE Hawaii Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does CARE Hawaii offer?

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

CARE Hawaii Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides evidenced-based substance abuse treatment services. Their goal is to reduce substance use and criminal activity by utilizing motivational interviewing techniques, social learning approaches, and cognitive-behavioral strategies, while providing evidenced-based, substance abuse services for consumers to enhance quality of life issues, restore and improve social functioning, and support the integration of consumers served in the community.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Adult residential services consists of 4 levels of care: Specialized Residential Services Population (SRSP), Therapeutic Living Program (TLP), 24 Hour Group Home and 8-16 Group Home. The residential program offers individualized services tailored to each resident’s needs with respect and support for the individual’s choice. The individual’s participation in treatment planning helps achieve the goal of increased independent functioning in community living and work settings. Consumers are encouraged to participate in social and recreational activities. Additional services may include restorative therapy, recreational therapy, assistance with activities of daily living, individual and group skill building and other activities which support healthy living.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This program provides graduates of the Day Treatment Program group and/or individual therapy and psycho-educational activities focused on maintaining and strengthening the person’s recovery and relapse prevention skills.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

CARE Hawaii Highlights:

The Bio Psycho-Social program provides a mixture of classes, practical experience, and community interaction as individuals pursue the goal of recovery. Individuals are taught to manage the symptoms of mental illness so that they may fully participate in community life. Practical experience includes learning how to shop for and prepare for meals, scheduling medical appointments, developing leisure activities, and beginning to develop job-finding skills. Throughout the program, the goal of recovery is emphasized. Participants are encouraged and supported to actively direct their recovery process through choosing activities that support their growth and development.
CARE Hawaii offers Day Treatment. The Day Treatment program focuses on treatment, relapse prevention, and recovery for individuals with serious mental illness and addiction concerns. Day Treatment provides the consumer with the opportunity to participate in a structured therapeutic program while being able to reside in the community. Activities include, but are not limited to, group counseling, education, skill building, recreational therapy, and family services.
CARE Hawaii also offers a Seeking Safety program. Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy designed for people with serious mental illness and who have experienced severe trauma in their lives. “Trauma” means that a person has suffered or witnessed a severe life event, such as physical or sexual abuse, a car accident, or a hurricane. The treatment consists of 25 psychotherapy topics. It is an “integrated” treatment, meaning that both trauma and substance abuse issues are worked on at the same time to promote the most successful recovery possible.
The ADAD Adolescent IOP program is a 3-6 month Intensive Outpatient Program for adolescents between the ages of 12-18. The ADAD Adolescent IOP program provides Drug and Alcohol Assessments, Individual Counseling, Group Treatment (Process and Activity Groups), Family Education, Treatment Planning, Relapse Prevention, Case Management, Crisis Prevention, Discharge Planning and Artistic Mentoring.
