Introduction

From 2006 to 2014, drug overdose deaths in Hawaii increased by 83 percent, an amount that is more than double that of the nation’s 37 percent. Opioid pain relievers contributed to at least 35 percent of those drug overdose deaths from 2010 to 2014.

There is no such thing as an easy recovery. It can be the most challenging and painful experience that a person goes through. For the millions of individuals who struggle with addiction daily, however, recovery is necessary to lead a fulfilling life. Whether you’re seeking help for someone else or are exploring treatment options for yourself, here is an overview of different types of programs available to aid in the process of recovery.

Type & Length of Care:

When considering different treatment options, it’s helpful to understand some of the most common terms used.

Long Term Treatment Programs (90-Day)

With the underlying belief that people are most successful in recovery when they are removed from their everyday environment and distractions, long-term treatment programs are at least 90 days in length and involve patients residing in a facility. During this time, they undergo intense treatment that strives to reduce the temptations of substances.

Short Term Treatment Programs (28 / 30 Day)

In a short-term facility, patients often stay on the premises for a duration up to 45 days. These shorter options intend to provide residents with coping strategies that deter the need for substances.

Outpatient / Inpatient

Inpatient facilities are intensive programs that provide a place for patients to live while partaking in treatment. They are often more structured than outpatient services and are designed to help individuals battle serious or long-standing addictions.
Outpatient facilities are part-time programs that afford patients more flexibility to maintain regular commitments, such as family, work, and school. With the ability to go home each day, people are afforded more anonymity and privacy. On the other hand, patients do not benefit from the safe, secure environment that isolates them from outside influences in an outpatient program.
Inpatient programs provide a structured, reclusive environment that shelters people from the stressors that lead them to use. Many of those who enter residential treatment have already relapsed after trying outpatient services.

Residential Treatment Services:

Detox

Often the first step to recovery, detox is best when done under the supervision of a medical professional to ensure that a patient’s withdrawal symptoms aren’t too severe. Detoxing from some drugs requires the use of medication to help manage withdrawal symptoms. In time, these are often tapered down to eliminate the reliance on any substances.

Sober-living house

Acting as a bridge between intensive treatment and the “real world,” sober living homes provide housing for recovering addicts. Such homes are ideal for people who want more time practicing the skills learned in treatment and to form healthy habits.

Dual diagnosis

Individuals who have a simultaneous mental health concern, including bipolar disorder or depression, and a co-occurring substance abuse addiction, are referred to as dual diagnosis patients. Dual diagnosis facilities have staff that includes both mental health professionals and substance abuse counselors.

Commonly Abused & Treated Drugs:

Crystal meth is by far the most prevalent drug throughout the Hawaiian islands; per capita, the state has the highest rate of ice users in the nation. Homegrown cannabis is the second most common drug consumed in Hawaii and the state remains a national leader in the production of high-grade cultivated marijuana. Other drugs frequently seized in Hawaii include MDMA, LSD, and GHB, particularly among the military population and youth, as well as the prescription drug hydrocodone.

Conclusion

There are hundreds of addiction programs throughout the United States that offer specialized treatment for substance abuse. Whether a person prefers staying close to home or traveling far away, there are endless opportunities to reclaim sobriety.
