Our Approach

Adult Treatment

Akamai Recovery Maui offers a variety of outpatient services designed to meet the individual treatment needs of its clients.

Registration – Registration is the first step in accessing treatment and services. The registration and intake process includes completing documents necessary to open the client’s case and a determination of financial resources available for payment of fees.

Urine Toxicology Screening – May be done at the point of intake, and are randomly performed throughout the entire duration of treatment services. Individuals under a doctor’s care and prescribed medications for chronic pain management or medically-managed detox are welcome.

Assessment – The assessment provides a comprehensive overview of the client and their problems. Assessment includes alcohol and other drug history, including past treatment or efforts to abstain, functioning in the areas of family, employment, health, mental health, legal, social and other life areas. Strengths available to support the recovery process, client motivation for recovery, and ability to abstain from alcohol and other drugs on an outpatient basis are also assessed. Recommendations for additional services, if appropriate, are also a part of the assessment process. The assessment usually takes one and one half hours. Some clients may require additional assessment time. Upon completing of the assessment, an Individualized Treatment Plan is developed. The plan is based on the results of the assessment and establishes the goals for treatment. The client is encouraged to participate in the development of the treatment goals and the treatment plan.
