Addiction to alcohol and other substances affects not only the individual struggling with substance abuse, but also their family and friends. Just as family and friends may suffer from the behaviors of an addicted individual, they can also play a crucial role in the the recovery process.
Hina Mauka’s Family Program is offered to family and friends of persons addicted to alcohol and other drugs. Participants learn about addiction, the effects of addiction on relationships, and their role in their recovery process.
The Family Program meets in Kāne‘ohe, O‘ahu every Thursday from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. For more information, please contact us at (808) 236-2600.
