Serving the People of Hawaii Since 1960
The Kline - Welsh Behavioral Health Foundation shall direct its attention, efforts and resources toward the areas of Treatment, Education, Stigma Reduction and Research in the field of Substance Related and/or Chronic Mental Health Disorders.
Our efforts are intended to bring about a greater understanding of, and level of relief from, the suffering that accompanies the abuse of and addiction to Beverage Alcohol, Illicit Drugs and other substances generally recognized as subject to abuse.
A primary goal of the Foundation shall be to provide Integrated Behavioral Health Care services for the purpose of effectively addressing all manner of addictions, including addictive disorders with a co-occurring mental disorder.
An array of treatment services is offered to allow for appropriate levels of intervention and assistance, based upon a comprehensive assessment of treatment needs.
These services include:
CONSUMER ADVOCACY AND REFERRAL
SPECIALIZED RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT
TRANSITIONAL LIVING SERVICES
AFTER-CARE AND FOLLOW-UP SERVICES
As a non-profit, charitable institution, priority has historically been given to the most damaged and desperate of our fellow citizens to ensure they too have access to these critically needed services.
The Kline - Welsh Behavioral Health Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to ensuring that all those in need of these types of services, receive those services. Our goal is to offer addiction and mental health treatment services, address basic human needs during program participation, engage in individual counseling and undertake the spiritual, moral, psychological and physical rehabilitation of all persons, regardless of their ability to pay. Operating as a true non-profit, we are morally obligated to find a way to help.
The Kline - Welsh Behavioral Health Foundation is a private non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, incorporated in 1960 by Richard D. Welsh, Sidney Lewis Kline, John Dominis Holt IV, and Alexa Cogswell.
The Foundation has provided rehabilitation services continuously, 24 hours per day - 7 days per week, since that time. The first licensed Special Treatment Facility in the State of Hawaii, the Treatment Center has evolved into one of the largest, most effective and comprehensive drug rehabs in the Pacific region.
Our continuing goal is to provide the most comprehensive, effective and truly responsive treatment services possible to our patients, regardless of funding status or ability to pay.
