Get Beyond Addiction At Mokuleia

Mililani-based New Horizons Counseling will conduct an addiction treatment camp Dec. 7-12 at Camp Mokuleia for a select group of 10 participants.

The intensive, live-in, court-approved program is run by NHC director Mark Turansky and includes meals, private rooms and a structured routine designed to lead addicts toward understanding, treatment and recovery. Fee is $1,500, which Turansky said is affordable, compared to similar inpatient programs that cost up to $30,000 a month.

The author of Figure it, Face it & Fix it — Your surprising solution to addictions and substance abuse, Turansky offered testimony from past treatment camp participants.

* “Values and life choices which I was avoiding were brought out and looked at for the first time in quite a while,” said a Haleiwa camper. “I needed that. To see the reasons behind why I’ve been doing to myself what I’ve been doing has been enlightening.”

* “At Treatment Camp,” said a Waialua addict, “I learned to stop using by looking at addiction in a positive, honest and empowering way.”
