ABOUT CHAMP CLINIC

The Comprehensive Health and Attitude Management Program (CHAMP) Clinic, located in Honolulu, Hawaii, provides outpatient treatment for adults struggling with opiate addiction. The facility strives to help its clients achieve long-term sobriety and eventually reintegrate into the local community. The organization offers similar programming through a second clinic located in Maui.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Individuals seeking treatment first participate in a free assessment via phone to determine if CHAMP Clinic is the most appropriate program for their needs. Those who choose to enroll may undergo monitored detox, a gradual process that is conducted under close supervision of program staff. Once stabilized, clients typically begin methadone maintenance, which may be administered on a short- or long-term basis, depending on each client’s condition and goals.

In addition to methadone dosing, clients receive individual counseling, guidance on vocational planning, and case management. According to CHAMP Clinic’s website, all counselors have an open door policy, which allows clients to access support during scheduled times and as needed.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to its website, CHAMP Clinic employs substance abuse counselors and a nursing staff.

The two individuals who submitted reviews to the CHAMP Clinic’s unofficial Facebook page provided slightly lower ratings of two and three stars, based on a scale of one to five stars.[2] Darrick was critical of the facility in his review commentary, noting unclean conditions and long wait times. “Can take hours to get dose, dirty. Take 3 months to get take home for week no one has talked to me since started. JOKE,” he wrote.
