The camps give those struggling with addiction a chance to get away from the routine of life and find healing and restoration in a small group setting, reports www.newhorizonshawaii.com.
— Hawaii-based New Horizons Counseling has recently announced that they are now enrolling for their upcoming fall and winter treatment camps. These events will be taking place on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu and are designed to allow those who are in need of treatment and counseling to get away from the distractions and routine of life and experience healing and restoration. There is limited enrollment for each program, as Horizons only works with a few people at a time to allow everyone involved to enjoy the privacy of a small group setting.
Mark Turansky, a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor and owner of New Horizons, stated “Drug and alcohol recovery programs are often cast in a negative light because they are often associated with an approach that makes people feel less-than and powerless to overcome their addictions. At New Horizons, we strive to create a different environment – one filled with positivity and support for those who want to find freedom from the slavery of addiction. During the last few months of the year, we’ll be holding two inpatient treatment camps that are going to help addicts find common ground in a family setting, reflect on their lives, and get help from counselors that truly care about their success.”
This year, New Horizons Counseling will be offering two inpatient treatment camps. The first is a 5-Day Mini Camp taking place at Camp Homelani on October 14th through the 18th. There will also be a 6-Day Treatment Camp at Camp Mokuleia taking place on December 4th through the 9th. Spots for both of these camps are extremely limited, so the New Horizons staff encourages interested parties to inquire about enrollment right away.
As Turansky goes on to say, “Unlike 12-step inpatient alcohol rehab programs, we never want our patients to walk away feeling like they’ll never be free from their addictions. In providing a safe space for them to work through their issues, gain valuable awareness, and discover their own strength, we’re giving people the tools they need to return to living their best lives.”
