Aloha!
« on: September 02, 2011, 04:38:36 PM »
From sunny Hawaii!

Been a looong time since Ive been on the board, I was just thinking how great it was that Fornits has come so far, and in general when you google Straight Inc now, there are tons more websites and loads more information about the program.  Way to go Survivors!

And Aloha to you too! If you're really in Hawaii, d'ya happen to know anything about this place?


 :on phone: Pardon me while I rudely interpret your idyllic vacation; feel free to ignore the shameless interjection!

Nerp, never heard of it.  Thats on Oahu, I live on Maui.

I have to say though, I cant imagine Hawaiians allowing any bullshit to go on.   They are serious business about that sort of thing around here.  And secondly, my personal opinion is that regardless of the type or effectiveness of their methods, an over 18 treatment center, to me, is a whole different ballgame....because you can leave.

I dont agree with any "treament" really, but if its voluntary that changes things from what we went through.

Well... like I said in the opening line on that thread: "This place recently resumed accepting adolescents" (apparently they had stopped in 2002). I kinda doubt that this will be voluntary, at least on the part of the kids themselves. Perhaps "voluntary" in the sense of being the alternative to jail?

There are actually a number of programs that have set up shop in Hawaii, at least for a time. Programs are everywhere, especially where the specter of addiction treatment becomes a local concern... Which, incidentally, does appear to be the primary focus of this particular TC.

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.
