Headed by Dr. John Hibscher, Psychologist and Director of Clinical Services, Hawaii Island Recovery introduces a broad approach in the treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse by integrating the latest scientific and holistic advancements in addiction treatment, along with certain traditional time-tested regimens that ultimately result in higher rates of success. As stated by Dr. Hibscher and likewise, displayed on their website, “We provide integrated, evidence-based treatment for anyone battling with substance abuse disorders. Our focus is on clinical excellence, extraordinary client care and ongoing research that results in higher success rates and improved lives.”
The new Dolphin Therapy Program, in addition to the many other core treatment elements, is essentially an experiential therapy approach that interfaces the client with wild Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. The process takes place in a wild and open setting and personifies a number of parallels within active addiction, as well as active recovery. As described in their website, “…Herein lies the power of this encounter – it happens in their environment and on their terms. It is unpredictable and uncontrolled. To many people in recovery, this is a metaphor for their own lives and serves as a launching point for reflection and actions that will guide them, not only through the dolphin encounter, but onward through their recovery.”
The program as a whole is vastly multi-faceted and provides substantial customization along with one-on-one treatment services based on the specific needs of each client. Additionally, Hawaii Island Recovery provides; psychological and psychiatric assessment & treatment, medical detoxification for alcoholism and drug addiction, residential inpatient services, intensive outpatient treatment, individual and family psychotherapy, case management, continuing care services, dual-diagnosis treatment and more.
In addition to announcing the Dolphin Therapy Program, HIR is now now offering to cover the cost of round-trip airfare for clients successfully completing the 60-90 day program – a feature rarely seen within such high-end facilities. Interestingly, HIR is priced at under $20,000 per month which is the equivalent to approximately 50% of other comparable programs.
