The ‘Ohana Makamae School based Program provides an innovative approach to substance abuse education, prevention and treatment in Hana High and Intermediate/Middle School. School-based counselors are trained to meet the special needs of the students who are experiencing or at risk of having substance abuse issues. They meet regularly in group and individual settings. All school-based treatment is confidential, flexible, and individualized. Our counselors collaborate with parents, faculty, and/or staff in order to provide the appropriate level of care; this includes assessments, professional recommendations, and treatment.

Our service is available to anyone in need. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, age, or sexual orientation. Please call us if you would like more information on our program, know someone who may be in need of our services, or are just concerned about a friend or family member. Your call and our services are confidential.
