Vision, Mission & Guiding Principles

Our Mission


We will provide the highest quality mental health and substance abuse treatment services that are culturally appropriate to Big Island adults, adolescents and children. This mission is accomplished through the use of an integrated approach to treatment utilizing both cognitive behavioral and existential psychotherapy. This allows the individual to formulate a reason for changing and create strategies to experience emotional, cognitive, and spiritual growth.

Our Vision


We visualize all of Hawai‘i’s adults, adolescents and children to have optimal physical and mental health; where mental health, substance abuse, dependency, and addiction are recognized as health issues; and where stigma and other barriers to recovery are eliminated.
