Its fresh, floral air can energize anyone and its breath-taking, superb, splendor is simply what a tired soul need to relax his mind. This island paradise has not escaped the clutches of the drug scourge, however. In 2014, a total of 157 Hawaiians lost their lives to drug overdose accounting for an age-adjusted rate of 10.9. This was one notch lower than its 2013 figures at 158 drug overdose deaths for a rate of 11.0. While the numbers are quite numerically insignificant compared to other states, Hawaii’s drug rehab and treatment facilities are continuing their efforts to contribute in the management of drug addiction
Hawaii’s geographical location situated 4,000 plus miles from the mainland makes it particularly challenging to address issues that require a more holistic approach. This is none truer than if some of the resources for drug rehabilitation and treatment have to be sourced from the continental US. However, Hawaii is also known for its people. Ingenious and very resourceful, Hawaiians have shown time and time again their capacity to make do with what Mother Nature has given them. And with so many islands that dot the chain, Hawaii will never run out of resources that can be successfully harnessed in drug treatment and rehabilitation.
It is for this reason that many drug dependents and drug addicts in the mainland are coming to Hawaii. It is not so much as to escape the social stigma and the less than supportive community that they have back home. They go to Hawaii primarily for its unique geologic features that are excellent for relaxing the mind. This allows for a more peaceful and more meaningful transition from a drug-filled lifestyle to one of responsibility, accountability, and social productivity. A Hawaiian drug addiction center will often be placed in a scenic location – lush greens on one side and palm tree fringed beaches on the other. The scents and sights of the island of Hawaii is largely taken to be invaluable to the recuperating mind of a substance abuser and addict as he convalesces and tries to recover what is left of his body and soul. Additionally, this can help him in his recovery so that by the time he goes back to the mainland, he will already be a changed man.
What makes Hawaii’s drug addiction treatment centers so enticing among mainland drug rehabilitees? It is perhaps the warmth of the healthcare professionals that man the halls of these treatment centers. They use the same technologies, employ the same techniques and procedures, and observe the same principles of curative and rehabilitative care for all individuals undergoing drug treatment and rehabilitation as in other drug rehab centers in the mainland. What others clearly do not have is the tropical island paradise setting which is being capitalized on by Hawaii’s supportive communities and members of the health care profession.
If you want to change your life forever, leave the life of drugs, Hawaii’s unmatched beauty and the warmth of its people and its healthcare practitioners are enough reasons for you to hop on a plane and get your feet on Hawaiian soil.
