The state of Hawaii does not offer to fund addiction treatment, however, many of the drug treatment programs in the state accept private health insurance. Addicts who are seeking out treatment can also be eligible for financial assistance depending on the individual's needs. Throughout the state of Hawaii are programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, the Hawaii State Department of Health Access Line, Narcotics Anonymous, and other forms of peer support groups. There is also the Hawaii Opportunity Probation with Enforcement Program, which reaches out to individuals who are not eligible for drug court. The HOPE program is an intensive recovery program and involves offenders who are likely to violate the conditions of their probation.

Addicts searching for treatment programs in the state of Hawaii can search the Drug Rehab Services directory and find local services that will best treat their addiction. If you have health insurance, it is best to contact your health insurance provider and find out what is covered by insurance. Each insurance plan and policy is different from the next, and the level of coverage is dependent on the type of plan. There is also a growing number of adolescents struggling with addiction, and some of the middle schools and high schools offer school-based drug treatment. Local religious groups such as the Salvation Army also provide addiction treatment at a reduced cost. Some of the services may include detox, outpatient rehab, and sober living homes.

Many addicts choose to attend treatment out of state, as it may benefit his or sobriety to be away from home when going through drug rehab. Some addicts will choose treatment close to home, because of their support network. Whichever treatment approach is selected, it is important to attend a program that will help treat everything surrounding your addiction.
