Alcohol Addiction

“The first step toward recovery from alcoholism is the recognition that a problem exists. Once the problem drinker breaks through denial and admits to having a problem, a range of treatment options become available.”

What is Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction, which is also known as alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence, or alcohol use disorder, is categorized as a chronic brain disease. It is extremely complicated because it not only affects the person who consumes alcohol, but also the person’s entire close circle of family and friends.
Alcohol addiction does not discriminate against what it causes havoc too. It will intertwine itself into the person’s home, school, work, and all relationships. It can cause problems at home, work, or school.

There is not an exact formula to determine whether someone is an alcoholic, but symptoms often co-occur. Some of the most common symptoms that we see when it comes to alcohol addiction are as follows:

  • Irritability and extreme mood swings.
  • Becoming isolated and keeping distance from family and friends.
  • When the individual is not drinking, they still feel hungover.
  • A sudden change of appearance or acquaintances.

Alcohol Use in the United States

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), “85.6% of adults aged 18 and up have drunk alcohol in their life”. They also report that more than ¼ of people older than 18 binge drank in the last 30 days while the survey was being conducted.

These specific statistics can show how prevalent alcohol use and addiction is.

The research that was done by the National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism (NIAAA) also showed a devastating eye-opening statistic which is that there are nearly half a million children (age 7 to 12) that are struggling with alcohol use disorder.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program at Maui Recovery

At Maui Recovery, our staff and certified counselors work together to provide a full recovery program for every single person that joins our Recovery Community. Our members will be able to receive counseling and treatment 6 days a week for several hours each day.

Here at Maui Recovery, we also believe that a person needs to heal not only their soul but their body as well. To help our members release the trauma that they are dealt with and break through the barriers that they have put up and have been keeping them from their recovery journey, we include outdoor activities that promote overall well-being.

Our program is just 750 ft from the beautiful and serene Pacific Ocean and provides a safe, 24 hours monitored sober environment.

Adventure Therapy

One of the many pleasures of Maui is that it boasts vastly varied landscapes. Twin Falls crystallizes the depths of the island’s diversity. Located on the Road to Hana, this roadside attraction is not one to miss. Visitors hike to its waterfalls and are accessible to most. Visitors are often amazed by the teeming forests and stunning foliage and rare treasures, all of which are fueled by the abundant rain that showers down on the Ho’olawa Valley.

Maui Recovery is a safe, nurturing & intimate program that helps people address & heal the root causes of addiction.

What makes our staff so unique, is that we too have gone through our healing & recovery journey and care deeply about each individual that comes into our programs. Our staff has been through the core underlying work themselves and are living and breathing examples in their journey, living meaningful lives of purpose.

We look at drugs and alcohol as the branches of an under-loved tree, and once we help the branches recover, we can then focus on the real inner work and on the roots of the tree, which is what brought us to the addictions in the first place.

We understand that addiction is a chronic, progressive disease that involves the mind, body, and spirit, affecting the entire family. With this information, our experienced staff integrates our residents and their loved ones through research-based treatment modalities, including many holistic therapies.
