    My personal experience at Hawaii Island Recovery has been a life changing experience that has awakened me to the possibility of an addiction free life. The educated and knowledgeable staff have shown me the tools necessary to live a rewarding and desirable life. Do I recommend HIR? Yes I do. I insist on HIR.

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

    Iâve 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 brotherâs 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 âohanaâ. Iâve met mentors here who have âwalked my walkâ 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 canât 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. Iâm slowly gaining trust back from family and friends that I have hurt in the past. I was able to keep my job and Iâm much more productive in my work. Thanks to the experiences at HIR, Iâve truly learned to live a happy and sober life. Mahalo to all at Hawaii Island Recovery! T.C.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
