Habilitat is located in Kaneohe, Hawaii, on the Windward side of Oahu, on a 1.5 acre estate overlooking Kaneohe Bay. Habilitat is 30-month, long term residential substance abuse treatment and intensive vocational training program.

Habilitat Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

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.


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.

What does Habilitat offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

They provide a safe haven from external pressures and offer their residents a fresh start. Habilitat is a long-term residential program built on the Therapeutic Community model. This approach is considered by experts to be one of the most effective methods of treatment for substance abuse and chemical addictions.

Treatment Types:

Non 12-Step

Non-12-step programs promote a non-religious approach to rehab, and avoid calling addiction a disease (as traditional 12-step programs do). Instead, non-12-step programs emphasize scientific evidence when it comes to both treatment and recovery, and adapt to new addiction research as it comes out. Non-12-step programs stress the importance of self-reliance and empowerment (rather than dependence on a higher power, as in traditional 12-step programs). Non-12-step programs also tend to focus on co-occurring mental illnesses, if present. Addiction can make a mental health issue worse, and vice versa, so it's important to address both.

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.

Aftercare Support

Habilitat’s Aftercare program helps with the gradual transition from the post re-entry phase through program graduation, along with structured monitoring and follow-up for the first 6 months after program completion. All residents are graduated with a clinical discharge pending a probationary period. They require all graduates to find stable housing, acquire full-time employment with medical benefits, refrain from using any mind altering substances (alcohol included), and attend after care sessions at Habilitat’s facility.

Therapies Offered:

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.

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.

Life Skills

An integral component of Habilitat’s residential addiction treatment is our diverse vocational training programs. These programs include: food service, medical assistant, accounting, masonry, vinyl fencing, landscaping, carpentry, facility maintenance, sales and marketing, office administration graphic design, event coordinating, plumbing, home remodeling, and information technology. This component of Habilitat’s curriculum offers residents the opportunity to cultivate and refine the principles that Habilitat emphasizes: self-respect, accountability, concern for others, constructive criticism, self-discipline, lifelong learning, and a strong work ethic.

Nutrition Therapy

Habilitat places a special emphasis on nutrition within their resident population. Although it is left up to themselves to enforce self control when it comes to their own diets, if they notice that a negative or unhealthy habit is forming, they can intervene and redirect. Their nutritionist monitors their residents with special diet needs, and communicates and trains their Culinary Department on everything from portions to calorie intake.
