Maui Youth and Family Services
1931 Baldwin Ave, Makawao HI, 96768
Individualized treatment for 12-17 year-olds that includes clinical supervision, individual and family counseling, group therapy, education about addiction as well as activities and recreational excursions that reflect Hawaiian cultural values. Clients in this program also participate in The Makoa Project. We find that many young people who deal with substance abuse and addiction issues lack interests outside of their chemically dependent lifestyle and/or come from families that lack the time or financial means to provide such experiences. Thus, increasing opportunities to develop new interests, stir passions, and build connections, particularly activities that require physical exertion, are extremely important. This program is available in Makawao and staff can provide transportation to and from treatment.
