Since 1964, Big Island Substance Abuse Council has been inspiring individuals and families to reclaim and enrich their lives in the wake of the ravages of substance abuse. They offer a continuum of services that are culturally appropriate and aligned with the ever-changing behavioral health field.
BISAC has a strong commitment to serving both Hawai’i County and the state of Hawai’i.
Direct services for adults include Therapeutic Living Program, Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient Treatment, Outpatient Treatment, Clean & Sober House, Counseling and Therapy, as well as other supplemental services. BISAC also offers direct services for youth including school-based services and community-based treatment.
Hawaii Island Health & Wellness Center is a division of BISAC that provides behavioral and mental health services to both BISAC patients and the general public. The goal of HIHWC is to enhance well-being and create meaningful changes in the community and the lives of those they care for.
Demand for treatment has been high, particularly with the added stresses of the pandemic. The donation from Hawaii Petroleum will be used to carry forward Big Island Substance Abuse Council’s mission of helping individuals, their families, and their communities reclaim their lives.
