      Perhaps the happiest day of our lives was seeing our daughter after she had been at Hawaii Island Recovery for three months. She was serene and beautiful and seemed to have a new lease on life...After meeting and talking to staff about our daughter and after witnessing her transformation, we knew we had made the right choice in Hawaii Island Recovery. - N & J

      Hawaii Island Recovery (HIR) provided me with a safe and secure place to recover. The family environment at the residence extends into the community of Kailua Kona, Hawaii- where I attended 12-Step meetings twice a day during treatment. Through group and individual therapy at HIR I came to understand that the disease of addiction is centered in my thinking. I was able to confront core issues; incest, sexual abuse, eating disorders, panic attacks, depression. The combination of a sober mind, a healthy body, and sessions with Dr. John Hibscher, PhD. (Clinical Director, HIR) I could finally understand how the abuse I experienced affected every decision I made. Prior to surrendering to the clinical team at HIR, I had seen a dozen therapists and psychiatrists, no one was capable of creating a safe place for me to heal. For the first time in my life I felt like I was not alone in my struggle to recover. Ironically, I always considered "home" as everything and everyone I was raised with. Today, I have a new understanding of the cliche: "home is where the heart is". It was not until I was completely hopeless and discontented that I found my family at HIR and my home in the community of Kailua-Kona. Thank you for showing me how to live; happy, clean, and sober. Thank you for Loving me until I could love myself. - Gratefully, AM (California, USA)

      When I became an alcoholic, I know that I have hurt the ones I love. But at that time of addiction, I was so selfish that I only think of myself. And then one day, a realization came into me...I cannot be an alcoholic forever and I already needed help. That's when I learned about Hawaii Island Recovery. At Hawaii Island Recovery, I was able to deal with my alcoholism through their direct therapy. In my more than a month of stay there, I realized that each day of my recovery is a giant step removed from the lifestyle I want to escape.

      The day I left for treatment I was in total isolation...literally locked in a room for days. The only thoughts were of suicide. I did not have anything for 4 days and the only comfort was vodka and my assortment of pills. The first time I came out of my room was when the police escorted me out and even at that point I did not think I had a problem. After a family intervention I agreed to go and get treatment. I loved the thought of a community based treatment center. I was a fairly successful entrepreneur who was on the verge of losing everything; however I had my dignity and I felt that an institutional environment was not for me. The therapy I received was exceptional. The staff went out of their way to work with me. I had to learn certain life skills from start and I had to rebuild my battered body which once held an athlete. I stayed 120 days and I knew from the second I left the program I was going to make it. I had the tools and the knowledge to maintain my addiction. Thanks guys!

      I came there knowing I needed to change. I learned that at the age of 44, having the same habits developed for half of my life, if I continue to do the same thing and expect a different result that is insanity unto itself. I was warned that becoming sober might confuse my loved ones. It sure did, my husband and son did not know what this Woman was? She was different. I will be a sober Grandmother at about Christmas Time. Wow, what a sobering thought! Life! Live, Love! Stay with the Program. It is not easy but the rewards will reward you like you cannot believe. I have another business underway that makes me have to sit down and pay attention. Blessings

      Wow, I cannot thank you enough. Top of the line treatment in every way and believe it or not, you made it amazing! From top therapy to integrating my post user life, you gave me the tools to make a real difference in the world. I went from being a successful business person, with a lousy life, and a big ROCK on my back, to a better human being and a real fine husband and parent. You gave me the tools, way more than just in clinic, your integration tools for community and healthy living - the gym and workouts and the chefs, and nutrition really put me on track to win. Life is amazing, and to think, at one point I considered that my only option was to end it all! Now I can hardly wait for each new day - thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      After going through four treatments my life seemed as hopeless as ever. I knew that I couldn't stop drinking and doing drugs. I had pushed away my family and friends. I didn't feel like I was a bad person, I just needed help. Coming to Hawaii for recovery gave me new lease on life. It works! It really does. Life is great and my family is excited.

      I??ve been struggling with alcoholism since the age of fifteen, for it was the only way I new how to cope with my problems. Years into this terrible addiction, I found myself at the brink of losing everything important to me in my life. My wife was filing for a divorce, my family stopped talking to me, My kids lost all respect for me, I was facing job termination, and I soon found myself waking up in a psychiatric hospital depressed, defeated, and torn. My sister, heartbroken and tired of watching her younger brother??s life spiral out of control, approached me about a residential program she had learned about called Hawaii Island Recovery. I felt hesitant at first about this idea but knew this may be the last chance for me to make things right. Once I arrived at HIR, I was immediately greeted with open arms by staff who to this day, I call my ??ohana?. I??ve met mentors here who have ??walked my walk? and understood what it took to live a clean and sober life. For the first time in my life, I felt there was hope for me. Each day was filled with Educational group meetings, recreation therapy, individual counseling, and trips to the gym. I can??t forget to mention, the excellent food and the resort like atmosphere of HIR, making it so much easier to recover. Today I am happy to say that I live a sober and healthy life. I made an amends with my wife and our relationship is filled with love and happiness. I??m slowly gaining trust back from family and friends that I have hurt in the past. I was able to keep my job and I??m much more productive in my work. Thanks to the experiences at HIR, I??ve truly learned to live a happy and sober life. Mahalo to all at Hawaii Island Recovery!

      The program has taught me how to communicate better, the therapists and counselors are excellent and insightful. I feel more optomistic about my recovery.

      Hawaii Island Recovery taught me a lot and appreciate you helping me learn how to be with my family. You gave me tools to manage my addiction and I don't hang out with my old friends. I still go meetings and it all because of you. J.D.
