Residential Treatment Program Overview:

At ‘Ai Pono Maui we provide comprehensive treatment to address medical, nutritional, and therapeutic needs. Individual psychotherapy sessions will be two to three times per week and will include treatment for trauma. Family involvement is encouraged and will be supported and included as needed.  Our highly trained staff will be available 24/7 to provide individual support.

Nutrition therapy will be provided daily and will include supervised meals and snacks.  Individual sessions  with our registered dietitian are provided once per week.  Nutrition education groups are also provided on a weekly basis. Meals are prepared by our chef who will be working in conjunction with our dietitian to meet the nutritional needs of individual clients. Opportunities will be given for clients to practice self portioning and independent eating as they increase independence while moving through the program.

At ‘Ai Pono Maui all clients will have weekly visits with our consulting physician, who will work closely with staff to ensure that medical needs will be monitored and addressed.  Clients also have the opportunity to work with our psychiatrist as needed.

Our nursing staff is available 24/7.
