Aloha House Inc. Substance Abuse Treatment
Aloha House was established in 1977 for the purpose of providing outpatient and residential treatment for persons addicted to alcohol and/or other drugs. Since that time, the mission has been expanded to include provision of comprehensive, family-centered behavioral health interventions for the prevention and treatment of individual and family dysfunction.
Our mission is to promote recovery and healthy lifestyles to individuals and families by providing compassionate effective comprehensive behavioral health services with the spirit of excellence and aloha. The mission of our Substance Abuse Services Division is to assist persons addicted to drugs and/or alcohol to achieve and maintain healthy and sober lifestyles. The mission of our Mental Health and Social Services/Child and Adolescent Mental Health programs is to help children with emotional and behavioral impairments achieve optimal functioning in their schools, in their homes, and in the community.
Since 2000, Aloha House has worked with Malama Family Recovery Center (MFRC) – the only agency on Maui that provides a continuum of gender-specific substance abuse treatment services specifically to women. Gender specificity in treatment is critical to successful outcomes because women who abuse substances share common life experiences and have needs distinct from their male counterparts.
Because of women’s unique experiences and needs, this population requires enhanced programming related to mental health and medical needs, victimization issues, parenting and family issues, child care, transportation, financial, employment and vocational needs. A large percentage of our clients are of Native Hawaiian descent and we are proud to integrate culturally competent strategies that incorporate Hawaiian and “local” culture in the healing of substance abuse problems in our community. Since Malama opened its doors in 1990 we have served over 1,600 women.
