In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country, the NNED selects a partner organization to highlight once a month. Ka Hale Pomaika`i (KHP) has been selected as the Partner of the Month for December.
Beginning in 1996, Ka Hale Pomaika`i (KHP) has provided a valuable resource on Moloka’i through a Recovery Oriented System of Care with wrap around services which support consumers to recover or maintain abstinence from alcohol and other drug misuse. KHP seeks to offer culturally respectful sober support services, including community education, relapse prevention and sober housing, to adults in early recovery from addiction on the island of Moloka’i.
KHP uses state Certified Substance Abuse Counselors (CSAC), Certified Prevention Specialists(CPS), Certified Criminal Justice Addictions Professionals (CCJAP) and Peer- Recovery Partners with long-term recovery who have “been there” to provide addiction treatment, recovery advocacy, transportation and peer mentoring. KHP collaborates with many local community agencies by offering Substance Use related assessments, treatment, a sober living home and support programs for their referred clientele. KHP offers a site for supervised workers to fulfill community service obligations. Classes for court ordered Impaired Drivers who need “SARP” are available as well. KHP also offers a variety of customized Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) for Moloka’i businesses.
The programs KHP offers are designed to reduce recidivism and relapse in recovering adults who may have chemical dependency issues. Ka Hale Pomaika’i presently provides counseling services to people who may need introduction to or support in becoming sober. Many of our participants are adults who come to the organization for advice or support in their recovery. Others are those who have been referred because they have demonstrated a need to re-examine their substance use.
Culturally respectful services may include:
- Addiction treatment (Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Motivational Pre-treatment, Continuing Care)
- Substance Abuse Assessments
- Referrals for related services (Mental Health, Shelter, Detox, Drug Court, Rx support, etc)
- Drug use testing (UA, Lab, Oral)
- Impaired Drivers Classes for those with court compliance needs (Substance Abuse Pehabilitation Program SARP)
- Transportation to access recovery
- Peer-driven motivational enhancement pre-treatment outreach and mentorship with Recovery Partners
