Drug Rehab in Hawaii: The Importance of Seeking Help

Being addicted to something, anything, is dangerous. Whether it be food, drugs, sex, alcohol, shopping, technology, or anything else, it is life altering. Addiction is a thief, usually silent in the beginning, and then becoming more rapacious as time wears on. What starts out as something small, eventually grows to consume the person it lives in, a parasite of their time, their joy, and their relationships. In more severe cases it can overwhelm every aspect of a person’s life, eventually causing them to become houseless, friendless, jobless, and morally bankrupt. Addiction is a prison not easily escaped from. It is for this exact reason that treatment programs exist, to assist people in the seemingly impossible escape from addiction.

But Can’t They Just Choose To Get Better?

While letting go of an addiction might seem like an obvious and easy choice from the perspective of an outsider, it is anything but for the addict themselves. Addicts often suffer from an inability to recognize their addiction as being a real problem, often blaming anything and everyone else for their problems. If a person doesn’t recognize the problem, then there is not much that can be done. However, an addict who does recognize the problem (the first step in any addict’s journey), might be suffering from a complete sense of hopelessness. Many people have already tried to be free of their addictions, and having been unsuccessful in the past, believe they are a lost cause. Like we said before, it is why treatment programs exist. People need help. And the help is available. There is an old saying: “It takes a village to raise a child”. The same could be said for an addict. For those who have never had the painful experience of addiction, it can be difficult to understand. But a person who wishes to gain freedom from their addiction has the greatest chance of success when they are supported by a community who encourages and holds space for them while they begin to heal. This why starting the journey in a healing, safe space like Honu House is the right choice for anyone wishing to start their transformational journey. At honu House, we are the village.

Drug Rehab in Hawaii


As you may already know, there are an increasing number of drug rehabilitation centers opening up all over the world. Addiction is a life altering, life-ending epidemic. For people craving freedom from addiction, help is available. A holistic wellness center is the perfect place for people who wish to put an end to their addiction and experience a higher version of themselves.

Specifically looking for drug rehab in Hawaii? Honu House Hawaii takes a more holistic approach to the treatment of addiction. Whereas many traditional treatment facilities focused on the addiction alone, ignoring the breadth and depth of harm that has been caused, Honu House uses the well supported theory that addiction is more deeply rooted in an individual. We believe in treating the causes and conditions. That is to say the drug was never the actual problem, it was but a symptom.

Before the drug of choice, what was there? And what about all the things that occurred while a person was in their addiction? A person trying to break free from addiction needs as many tools in their proverbial toolbox as possible. We treat all levels of the self. We provide a fresh, nutrient rich diet to fortify the body and mind chemistry, instruction on mindfulness techniques to retrain the brain, physical outings in nature to restore the spirit. In addition to traditional 12 step recovery work, residents experience relaxation and healing through powerful breathwork techniques, myriad types of therapy, and incredible science backed rejuvenation methods like cold water immersion. These are but a few examples of the ways in which we address the whole person, bringing them back to life and giving them the techniques they will need to take back their life as a healthy, whole person. Addiction is a brutal disease that should not be faced alone. Here, you will have round the clock support, guidance, and encouragement as you begin to heal and start to thrive.
