Hawaii Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation

Drug and alcohol abuse in Hawaii continues to be a problem as it is in other states in America. However, Hawaii tends to have some of the lowest rates of use and abuse. In fact, they are ranked amongst the lowest states in past year cocaine use for those 12 years and older, and 26 and older as well as for past year nonmedical use of pain relievers in all age groups, past month tobacco use and past month cigarette use in all age groups as well.

The number of individuals who have used marijuana is the past month and year is a little bit higher but is at the average national rate for every age group. Those that use illicit drugs besides marijuana fall at or below the national averages. The same holds true for pass year alcohol use and binging.

Alcohol abuse and dependency in Hawaii is at or below the national average for every age group with those between 12 and 70 amongst the lowest in the U.S. The use and abuse of illicit drugs is below or at the national rate except for those individuals who are 26 years and older. In 2006 there were 94 Hawaii alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. 80% of these are nonprofit and private and 13% or for-profit and private. The rest, roughly 7%, are operated by governmental agencies either at the local, state or federal levels.

Most of Hawaii drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities do provide various types of care with the majority of them, over 90% of providing outpatient treatment. Sixteen percent make residential care available and there are three drug rehab centers that provide treatment for those addicted to opioids. Nearly 40 doctors and 7 programs have certifications to offer Buprenorphine treatment for those addicted to opiates. This is a pretty decent figure.

Almost all of drug and alcohol rehab’s centers in Hawaii receive money from the government. Forty-one percent have some type of contract with managed care organizations that offer care to those in need of it. A N-SSATS census found that on one given day there were 3,787 individuals in treatment with 3,284 of them enrolled in some type of outpatient program. A whopping 23%, or 864 individuals, were younger then 18. This is a pretty alarming percentage. Though 864 young persons is a relatively small number, the percentage that they make up of total addicts is extremely high and quite problem some.

Over the past 15 years there has been a steady decrease in the amount of individuals that seek treatment for alcohol and cocaine in Hawaii but there has in the sharp increase amongst those in need of help for methamphetamines addiction.
