As of 2003, 77 alcohol treatment and drug rehabilitation centers in Hawaii served more than 3,000 patients.
State-funded institutions and private centers administer various drug & alcohol rehab programs such as behavioral and cognitive therapies, long-term and short-term treatments, the 12-step program, and confinement to residential facilities. However, majority of patients with drug dependence and alcoholism problems still prefer programs for an outpatient course of treatment.
The initial phase of most treatments is known as the detox program. Through alcohol or drug detox, the patient is relieved from accumulated toxins. The process usually results in physical discomfort but in due time, may help the body adjust from the withdrawal symptoms. Interventions and counseling are also recommended. The patients are normally advised to join support groups to sustain the progress. Meanwhile, after-care treatments are also available to avoid relapse.
The success of any rehabilitation program lies on active participation of the patient and his family. Although full-recovery is not an absolute guarantee, professional treatments help patients be more prepared to lead a normal life.
