"Mahalo" is a Hawaiian word meaning thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, respects. Mahalo is a sober living facility with a live in house manager and 6 additional men. The men will either have 30 days clean or have recently completed a treatment program.
"Mana" is a Hawaiian word meaning a life energy that flows through all things and is highly individual: you have a chance to gain or lose mana in everything you do. Mana is a peer run facility for men with 6 months of clean time or coming from a 3 month treatment facility.
When leaving treatment, a safe environment is inaccessible for most people, thereby putting their sobriety in danger. The homes are designed for a long-term and supportive residency that strives to provide a mutual support system to achieve success in sobriety. Eliminating the use of drugs and alcohol remains the first step in recovery. However learning to live a drug and alcohol free life takes more time. Studies have indicated that the likelihood of maintaining long-term sobriety double when coupled with residency in a sober living house.
