Claiming a Life Purpose

Personal development in your recovery from addiction is one of our paramount goals. Personal growth is a cornerstone of our holistic patient-centered treatment program.  Personal development empowers people to transform their lives in fundamental and lasting ways. 

Claiming a Life Purpose is a specific therapy we offer as part of a customized treatment plan for substance use disorders and eating disorders. Life purpose is the predominant theme that creates the core of a person’s identity. It is a self-organizing vision that helps us make cohesive decisions and take charge of life rather than living at the mercy of changes that are happening around us.  

In Claiming a Life Purpose, you will reconnect with your core values, interests, and goals. Purpose doesn’t necessarily need a goal to be achieved but it can be a motivating factor that drives our goals. We will help you to get clear about your purpose, reinforce your motivation and help you to seek alternative ways to maintain focus and move forward in life.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as Neural Tapping, was born out of doctors’ desire to help their patients deal with phobias, stress, and fear. They stimulated acupressure points throughout the body, which was later streamlined and made available to the public as a means of self-treatment for emotional stress held in the body.

Emotional Free Technique is one of our body-centered therapies that aims to help relieve stress, depression, anxiety, and the lasting impacts of trauma. EFT incorporates similar philosophies and techniques as Eastern disciplines such as tai chi, yoga, and acupuncture. EFT stimulates the energy points of the central nervous system, where we know trauma and emotional strain can be stored, to release it and help the person to heal.

EFT is a gentle way to stimulate the central nervous system to bring about transformation and personal growth. Our holistic therapies that help to heal your brain and nervous system, releasing years of stress and trauma, will be the basis for a new life foundation helping you to not only overcome emotional stress stored in the body but also the root causes of addiction so that sustained recovery is the natural result.

Life Contract

Creating a personal life contract helps you to identify the ways you present yourself and makes room for personal growth. Life contract assists in the awareness of our four natures and the balance between them. The four natures are as follows:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Mental
  • Spiritual

Balance in life is key to success in each of these four areas. Establishing a balanced unified whole grants access to the power that balances these four pillars of life. Our Life Contract program is a process that will allow you to gain a sense of empowerment over what you are responsible for in life and the fact that you hold the key.

Creating balance in your life and understanding that you are responsible for keeping these four areas in their proper balance will allow your intentions to flourish into your desired results.

Responsibility Square

Many of us feel a strong desire to help others in our lives, and helping others can be important. But sometimes when you don’t look after yourself first, you can’t truly be of help to others. An old saying goes “a cup that is empty cannot quench anyone’s thirst”. While it’s important to help our loved ones, sometimes we must learn to take care of ourselves first, recognize our own needs, and create healthy boundaries around them. 

Taking responsibility for other people and their problems can create resentment. This resentment can be counterproductive not only for you but for the people that you are sincerely trying to help. To avoid this situation, creating your own personal responsibility square helps to establish healthy boundaries so that you can actually be of service to yourself and other people.

This therapeutic program will help you learn to take care of your own needs first before trying to help others. The goal is to learn to fill your cup first and recognize that your own needs are worthy. Service to others is a noble cause but not at the expense of your own happiness and wellbeing.

Mission Therapy

One of the most important aspects of personal development is establishing your mission or your purpose. If a person feels they have no mission or purpose and that their life has become stagnant, it can lead to depression, anxiety, and other counter-productive thoughts. These feelings can lead a person to turn to substance abuse or other destructive behaviors to find relief and escape their thoughts.

Mission Therapy is one of our holistic treatment programs for addiction that aims to help you with your personal growth and empowerment as you create a new life foundation in which to thrive.

Mission Therapy at Exclusive Hawaii Rehab helps you discover that you do have a purpose and what having a purpose means to you. You will establish mission statements that you wish to have represented in your life. You will define what “self” means to you and build clarity around your identity and your mission in life.


Hawaiian culture strives to promote peace amongst members of a family, or village. The community believes in bringing people together on their lanai to resolve issues that arose during the day.  It’s important to do so before sunset so that they could go to work the next day without unresolved issues hanging over them.

Ho’oponopono was born out of the necessity to resolve issues among the community quickly and efficiently. Many cultures around the world have adopted this traditional Hawaiian practice as a form of mediation that brings family and friends together to resolve issues, either over the phone or in person. Ho’oponopono provides a safe, comfortable platform to discuss issues so that resentment and hostility can be resolved and not left to stew.

A figurative indigo bowl is used in which people can place any issues they may have. The ceremony uses the healing power of Madame Pele (the volcano goddess that lives in the mountain visible from Exclusive Hawaii Rehab) to heal everyone involved in the traditional ceremony.

At Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, we incorporate the very best of modern psychology with traditional practices, including ones from the rich culture of Hawaii, to create a path to your personal development and recovery from addiction.
