The Queen’s Medical Center, located in Honolulu, is Hawaii’s largest private hospital. Founded as The Queen’s Hospital in 1859 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, the 533-bed acute medical care facility is home to The Queen’s Day Treatment Services, which offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for individuals suffering from chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders.
Treatment and Staff
Prospective clients undergo a 30-minute assessment that determines whether they have co-occurring mental health issues and alcohol or chemical dependency. They are then admitted to the appropriate outpatient program. Those requiring detox or Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) are provided with medical referrals.
TQMC offers a PHP called “Life Enhancement.” Clients attend recovery sessions five days per week, with groups offered from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday. Group topics include relapse prevention, crisis stabilization, medication management and skill building.
The IOP, also for those with co-occurring disorders, is offered from 9 am to 12 pm, and from 1 pm to 4 pm, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy and educational classes.
Group and class topics include skill building, relapse prevention, illness management, coping skills, occupational therapy, substance abuse/addiction, interpersonal difficulties, grief and loss, and an abundance of dual diagnosis support sessions. Additionally, a work readiness class teaches IOP clients the basics of getting a job.
The Community Transition Program at TQMC is offered to clients with severe mental health issues and a probable secondary substance abuse problem who need a short-term treatment option that focuses on life skills. Clients preferably have a period of abstinence prior to admittance and attend classes from 9 am to 1 pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Class topics emphasize dual diagnosis support, recovery support and work readiness.
Staff includes a psychiatrist, three social workers, LMFT/MFTs, CSACs, an occupational therapist, a behavioral health associate, an advanced practitioner registered nurse and a staff nutritionist.
All TQMC treatment programs are provided off campus at the Kaheiheimalie Building (formerly known as the Chock Pang building) and length of commitment varies per the client’s specific recovery needs. Each program typically has an average of 20 clients participating at once.
TQMC offers general wellness classes and health lectures with topics including a Smoking Intervention Guided Healing (SIGH) class and anger management.
With a highly credentialed, caring staff and comprehensive services, TQMC Day Treatment Services are a great fit for individuals seeking an outpatient program focused on intensive dual diagnosis support, as well as substance abuse and addiction treatment.
