Ka Hale Pomaika’i is Moloka’i’s premier Recovery Community Organization. Its members, participants, staff and board of directors are all comprised of persons in recovery or are family and allies of persons in recovery. Anyone who is on the path of sobriety is welcome to meet and join with other who are on this shared road.
Ka Hale Pomaika’i presently provides counseling services to people who may need introduction to or support in becoming sober. Many of our participants are adults who come to the organization for advice or support in their recovery. Others are those who have been referred because they have demonstrated a need to re-examine their substance use.


Culturally respectful services may include:

1. Addiction treatment (Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Motivational Pre-treatment, Continuing Care)
2. Substance Abuse Assessments
3. Referrals for related services (Mental Health, Shelter, Detox, Drug Court, Rx support, etc)
4. Drug use testing (UA, Lab, Oral)
5. Impaired Drivers Classes for those with court compliance needs (Substance Abuse Pehabilitation Program SARP)
6. Transportation to access recovery
7. Peer-driven motivational enhancement pre-treatment outreach and mentorship with Recovery Partners
8. Community Service opportunities (civic pride and court related)
9. Victory Farm -Sustainable agricultural project
10. Emergency food pantry services with the Maui Food Bank
11. Temporary sober living for single adults after 30 days of recovery who may need a safe start
12. Assistance to send a participant to residential treatment off island (if funds permit)


Ka Hale Pomaika’i offers their office as a Recovery Community Center serving as a forum for support such as 12-step meetings, Ohana gatherings and learning circles with Kupuna. All services that KHP offers are conducted with a focus on Native Hawaiian traditions and values.
Ka Hale Pomaika’i operates a Recovery Connection Line. It has been the conduit that has made it possible for folks in recovery who might be on the brink of relapse to find their way back to renewed sobriety. This “warmline” is a means where callers are able to access telephone support to:

  • avoid relapse
  • assist a distressed family member of a substance abuser
  • hear information on addiction or the effects of alcohol and other drug abuse
  • receive referrals to other related community social services
  • gain information and outreach support for various 12-step self-help groups
  • schedule emergency food box pick-up
  • arrange for transportation to a recovery related meeting or appointment
