Hawaii’s Clean and Sober Home Registry Provides Support for Recovery Efforts

March 1, 2019

HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 1, 2019--The Hawaii Department of Health’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) has launched a new, voluntary online registry to help those recovering from alcohol or drug abuse find and access homes that operate programs supporting recovery efforts.

The new “Clean and Sober Home Registry” was established by Act 193 Session Laws of Hawaii 2014 Relating to Group Homes. The registry can be found online at cshome.ehawaii.gov. Those seeking a recovery program can search by city or zip code and view details on registered homes.

The voluntary registry enables agencies to refer their clients to clean and sober homes that comply with federal, state, and county requirements and standards to support their recovery efforts.

“Finding a stable, alcohol- and drug-free, home-like living environment is critical for recovery efforts,” said Angela Bolan, ADAD’s manager of the Quality Assurance and Improvement Office. “The registry helps provide more access to clients in recovery, as well as for registered homes to better connect with the community and receive referrals.”

The ADAD service was created in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC, the official Internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.
