Substance and Alcohol Abuse in Hawaii
The People of Hawaii are Hurting
The Sand Island Treatment Center agrees with prominent Hawaii-based organizations that the social ecological model of treatment — conceptualizing health broadly and including mental, physical, and social well-being — is a cornerstone of treatment.
That’s why our program is unique, with a long-term continuum of care that addresses not just the addiction, but the numerous underlying conditions that our clients struggle with. Without working through mental and physical health concerns, re-establishing social skills and support systems, and finding meaning in their clean and sober life, relapse and recidivism is much more likely. At SITC, that’s not acceptable. That’s not a solution. Instead, it’s a revolving door.
