“I love every single one of the staff members that work at The Exclusive, from the cook to the land therapist, to the acupuncturist to all the different team members on the therapy team. Every single person, no matter what level of involvement they have with you personally in your recovery, makes such an incredible impact.”

About the Exclusive Hawaii - Addiction Rehab Center

Update on Kilauea Volcano

 

There is no lava flow anywhere near The Exclusive Hawaii. Our center is over 60 miles from the active lava flow.
 
Our center is located in Lava Flow Zone 9 (which means we are as far as possible away from any threat of volcanic activity which occurs in zones 1 and 2, occasionally in 3).
 
Clients are safely participating in our program, and we are continuing normal admissions and daily operations.  There is no threat of harm anywhere in this area of Hawaii Island.
 

The Kilauea volcano has been continuously erupting since 1983, and this most recent set of events is part of the natural process for this type of volcano. We have co-existed with the volcano safely since our opening in 2011, and we will continue to in the future.

 

While we are not in harm’s way, there are members of this island who are being affected, whom we seek to assist through this trying time.
