What We Treat
Anxiety and depression tend to offer short-term relief when it feels like the world is closing in on you. If they take over, however, and you can’t function (or even get out of bed), it’s important to get help. While Maui Recovery is unable to give primary care for anxiety and depression, we do strive to
The Internet offers an escape from the pain, stress, and loneliness in their lives. It’s a place that provides comfort and entertainment. Going offline is unthinkable. At Maui Recovery, we strive to help clients heal. By focusing on the sources of the anxiety and unhappiness, we’re able to teach them that
Substances are easy to get addicted to, but behaviors can also become addictive. With process addictions, it’s about brain chemistry. An activity that that gives someone a rush can become habitual. Examples include sex, gambling, shopping, and work. Many who come to Maui Recovery for help have several
Playing Gambling can happen anywhere, from race tracks to casinos, family room poker games to online slot machines. With so many options available, compulsive gamblers are never far away from temptation. It’s a very real issue, one that affects people of all backgrounds.
The moment we experience trauma, our world is shattered. Our sense of safety and security disappears, leaving us feeling vulnerable, helpless, and paranoid. It does not matter if physical harm has taken place or not – any situation that leaves us scared or emotionally overwhelmed can be traumatic.
Detoxification is removal of toxins, including psychological or substance related. Using both evidence and experimental based treatments, we are able to effectively treat addictions or disorders. We offer our clients outdoor activities to promote emotional and physical well-being

We Know First Hand the Pain and Suffering That Comes From Active Addiction.
At Maui Recovery we’ve created a Recovery Program combining Holistic Wellness, Best-Practice Care, Nature & Transformative Experiences in order to achieve lasting Recovery. On the magical, mythical island of Maui, each struggling addict undertakes their own Hero’s Journey to overcome their struggles and find the purpose and passion of their lives; in a safe, nurturing and healing environment that provides a space for individuals to find the serenity to do the meaningful inner work, while growing spiritually as part of a supportive family community. Our clients get to go inward and dispel the false messages that have been running their lives and discover the truth about who they really are.
Technology Addiction & How to Break the Trance
A whole generation of "Failure to Launch" Millennials have seen their schooling, job prospects and/or interpersonal relationships suffer--or even destroyed--as a result of their screen or technology addiction. Now there is a dedicated specialized program at Maui Recovery to effectively treat this issue. Dr. Kardaras, our Co-CEO and Chief Clinical Officer, is considered one of the world’s leading experts on digital addiction (social media, video games, smart phones, etc.) and its treatment.
He is the author of “Glow Kids” (St. Martin’s Press, 2016), the seminal book on the clinical, neurological and sociological aspects of digital/technology addiction and, over the past 10 years, he has clinically worked with hundreds of young people struggling with this issue. And now he has brought his years of expertise and developed the best evidence-based recovery protocols at Maui Recovery to address and treat the addiction of this millennium.

Maui Recovery Turned my Life Around
“Maui Recovery was just what I needed to help me with my addiction. I've tried other programs and had some success but Maui Recovery was definitely the best.”

“Maui recovery is amazing. They sincerely want to help you move from the darkest to the light.”

What Program is Best for my Addiction Type?
Our program is designed as a 90 day program. Indeed, all the research indicates increased length of time leads to better recovery outcomes. However, we do understand that some clients may have unavailable hurdles to a 90 day stay. Our intake specialist will let you know during your screening if you are a candidate for a 60 or 30 day stay.
How long does recovery typically take?
Yes, Maui Recovery encourages all our families to participate in their loved one’s therapeutic process. Since we are a small program, we individualize the family therapy program to fit the needs of our clients & their families. Thus, family therapy sessions can be done weekly via Skype or telephone, or more intensive in-person family work can be arranged to occur on island. We do ask that the client not begin any family work until their 3rd week of treatment so that they can first acclimate to their recovery process.
Can Maui Recovery provide intervention?
Yes, Maui Recovery has a relationship with several of the best interventions in the country that families can be referred to. The interventionist will work closely with the family & Maui Recovery to help get the struggling loved one into treatment.
Do you work with insurance companies?
Treatment can burden families emotionally and financially. At Maui Recovery, we understand how overwhelming it can be to worry about the cost of treatment, but we can assure you that taking action now will be highly rewarding in the future. Financing options are available.
