Adult Services

Below are some of the programs we offer at Big Island Substance Abuse Council. For more information regarding any of these programs please contact us here.


Therapeutic Living Program

The Therapeutic Living Program (TLP) is a 24-hour fully staffed facility. TLP provides a structured environment with ongoing case management, evaluation, individual counseling, and care. BISAC also provides a Pregnant, Parenting, Women, and Children home (PPWC).



A step down from the TLP program, Day Treatment is the most intensive non-residential program for individual’s requiring a high level of care.


Intensive Outpatient Treatment

The Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) provides a structure for specialized services on a scheduled basis.



Outpatient Treatment

The Outpatient Program provides non-residential comprehensive services with evaluation, treatment, case management and recovery services for clients with less problematic substance abuse related behavior than would be found in a residential or day treatment program.
