Substance Use Disorder Services for Youth

Adolescent Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment

Individualized treatment for 12-17 year-olds that includes clinical supervision, individual and family counseling, group therapy, education about addiction as well as activities and recreational excursions that reflect Hawaiian cultural values.

Many young people who deal with substance abuse and addiction issues lack interests outside of their chemically dependent lifestyle and/or come from families that lack the time or financial means to provide such experiences. Thus, increasing opportunities to develop new interests, stir passions, and build connections, particularly activities that require physical exertion, are extremely important.

Transportation to and from the program is available for central and upcountry Maui.

The first step to getting help for yourself or for someone you know is to contact program staff to schedule an assessment meeting at 808-249-8691.

School-Based Services (Ke Ala Pono)

Free support for youth working through issues related to substance use/abuse that is available at almost all public middle and high schools in Maui County. Ke Ala Pono translates to “The Right Path” and includes on-site assessment, referral, treatment planning, education about addiction and coping skills, as well as individual and family counseling.

It is a confidential program that provides students a safe haven to seek help without fear of reprisal. Counselors are available to youth both before and after school and during the lunch hour. The program also includes group counseling when appropriate, as teenagers are group-oriented by nature. By building on that natural desire to belong, our counselors can offer an engaging and motivational program on the school campus.

For more information about this program, or to find out the name and contact information for the counselor at your school, call 808-579-8414.
