A special edition, this episode spotlights a recovery program which treats the whole person, not just a drug problem. Habilitat’s very unique, long-term model remains adaptable to the individual circumstances while creating a small, therapeutic recovery community.
Focusing on a graduated system of responsibility, accountability, and freedom Habilitat tailors the lessons and teaching for individual learning styles.
Studies have shown that longer treatment programs have higher success rates and 100% of Habilitat’s graduates have stable housing and a full-time job.
Jeff explains how Habilitat’s program works as he details how individuals move from an initial treatment phase to working through re-entry and post re-entry where participants receive vocational training in one of 13 trades.
He also outlines a “typical” day at Habilitat and some of the positive peer pressure strategies employed to help residents keep each other in check and create an extreme sense of self-awareness.
Jeff is the Executive Director of Habilitat, Inc. – a long-term residential addiction treatment and vocational training program, located on the island of Oahu, in Kaneohe, HI.
