In this small tucked away town of Hāna on the eastern side of the beautiful island of Maui,’Ohana Makamae offers a holistic family resource center which includes substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents, a sober living home and family support services. Our mission is:
“To strengthen the families of East Maui through Hawaiian culture and spiritual values.”
‘Ohana Makamae fulfills its mission by providing a continuum of culturally based substance abuse treatment programs; and by providing family support through parent education, community based activities and highly needed resources.
Often referred to as “the last true Hawaiian place”, Hāna is one of the most beautiful rural areas of Hawai’i. ‘Ohana Makamae serves its long established native Hawaiian community, alongside its greatly diverse non-Hawaiian residents. Native Hawaiians are estimated at 65% of the approximate 3,000 numbered population.
We believe in the strength of spiritual values and Hawaiian culture, which are present in every aspect of our work. Our aim is to integrate these core values in a manner that clients are able to embrace the spirit of aloha, and engage in personal restoration and long-term wellness.
Our mana’o – we encourage, and support the family’s role in the recovery process. We believe in treating the whole person; which means working together as a community, as ‘ohana.
‘OHANA…family is the source of all that is good.
