Habilitat Hawaii Long-Term Residential Substance Abuse Treatment & Vocational Training Program has been helping people since 1971. We are recognized as one of the nation's foremost long term drug rehabilitation centers. Habilitat is a self-supporting non-profit organization. We have developed techniques for creating the qualities lacking in many people's character: self-esteem, self-worth and self-discipline.

Habilitat strengthens your character, mind and body. We believe the best way to take ones dignity is to do something for them that they can do for themselves. We teach individuals how to be self-reliant and responsible members of society.

Habilitat's approach to addiction is unique. We do not subscribe to the notion that addiction is a disease. We teach people that addiction and alcoholism is a choice. We have understood for many years that long-term drug rehabilitation alone is not enough to ensure long-term success. People need marketable skills and work ethics if they are to be competitive in today's workforce. Our vocational training programs are second to none in the substance abuse treatment community. We motivate the unmotivated and often succeed where other programs have failed.

Since its modest beginnings, Habilitat grew to accommodate 200 residents at its new oceanfront facility in Kane`ohe, Hawai`i. Consistently, through demonstration and positive results in helping thousands of individuals and their families, Vinny Marino maintained the highly acclaimed Habilitat.

With increased responsibility generated by growth in Habilitat's resident population, Habilitat initiated ways to remain self-sufficient. Fundraising projects such as Christmas tree sales, catering, national book sales, music production and our annual luau, auction and benefit concert help to maintain Habilitat's goals of autonomy and self-reliance.

Over four decades after its inception, Habilitat continues its mission to help people overcome their problems with substance abuse and other anti-social behaviors.

If you or someone you know needs help, call before its too late. We can help! We beat our addictions and we can show you how to beat yours!
