The state flower is the yellow hibiscus and the state bird is called the nene (Hawaiian goose). Hawaiis motto is Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka Aina I Ka Pono (The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness). As of the 2010 Census 1,360,301 people lived in Hawaii.

Hawaii Drug Use Trends
The state of Hawaii was admitted into statehood in 1959 and is the youngest state in the union. Located around 2,400 miles from the U.S. mainland, Hawaii is surrounded completely by the Pacific Ocean and consists of 4 counties which are dispersed over an area covering 7 major islands. With such diverse geography, the state of Hawaii is also diverse in terms of its communities and people. The state has a population of about 1.3 million, and is home to a number of different cultures and races which shape its traditions and culture including Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, Caucasians, Japanese, Filipinos, Chinese and other Asians. There are several major substance abuse problems facing the state, so it is important for the residents no matter how remotely located from urban areas in the islands to know where to go to for help if they need it.
Nearly 50% of the residents of Hawaii aged 12 years and over report having used alcohol in the past 30 days. The highest prevalence rate is among residents ages 21 to 34, over 62% of which report recent use of alcohol. This problem begins to affect Hawaiians at a very early age, with one in every four 9th graders (27.2%) reporting monthly alcohol use, and by the age of 13 around 1 in 4 youth in the state have used alcohol. The rate of use among high school seniors is much higher at around 43%. One in ten Hawaiian teenagers report past month binge drinking, 44% of young adults ages 18-25 report binge drinking, and around 12% of adults age 21-29 report heaving alcohol use. Over 7% of young adults in Hawaii report being alcohol dependent and alcohol is the second most serious problem facing Hawaiians, with the current use of alcohol being at its highest level in recent years and showing no sign of decline.
Among high school students in Hawaii, alcohol prevalence rates are higher than they are for marijuana, although marijuana is the most abused illicit drug among residents in this age group in the state. About 15% of 9th and 10th graders report using marijuana monthly, a rate which increases to 22.4% among 12th graders. Among young adults in Hawaii aged 18-25, around 20% report using illicit drugs, predominantly marijuana. Among teenagers in the state, inhalants have the highest prevalence of lifetime use at 13% of Hawaiian teenagers reporting such use, followed by cocaine (6.5%), and MDMA or ecstasy (6.1%). Around 5.6% of Hawaiians are dependent on illicit drugs, with the rate of increase in illicit drug deaths being extremely high in recent years. Methamphetamine is also a very significant problem in Hawaii, and in 2007 of the 54% of the Federally-sentenced defendants in Hawaii who had committed drug offenses 80% involved methamphetamine. It is also estimated that 7% of Aids cases in Hawaii between 1983 and 2006 were related to injection drug use and this is a primary route of administration for meth.
So it is apparent that Hawaii is faced with a very significant drug problem in all age groups, the consequences of which are also very apparent and disheartening. But while a substance abuse problem can be one of the most challenging problems to overcome, it is possible when quality treatment options are made available to residents. Addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is a complex issue which can take quite a bit of time to address, if it is being addressed in the most proactive way which would treat not just the acute surface manifestations of addiction but the underlying causes as well. In many cases, individuals begin abusing drug or alcohol in order to mask or numb something in their lives that are causing emotional or psychological stress, and there are things which trigger substance abuse which must be resolved in treatment if the individual has any chance at staying off of drugs. This can all be addressed in a drug rehab program which provides a comprehensive treatment curriculum that starts with a safe detox and then follows this up with intensive treatment to resolve the issues that prompted their substance abuse.
Because this can be a challenging process even under the most ideal conditions and circumstances, inpatient and residential drug rehab programs in Hawaii are going to be the best possible setting to undergo treatment in the state because they provide a drug free and therapeutic environment where individuals can be surrounded by positive influences that will greatly assist in the process of recovery from addiction. In such a facility, treatment clients can take part in treatment services including behavioral therapy and other types of counseling to fully resolve anything which could cause a relapse in the future.
