Evidence-based Holistic Eating Disorder Treatment
At 'Ai Pono Maui Residential Treatment Center, we offer evidence-based, trauma-informed holistic eating disorder treatment in a peaceful home-like setting with picturesque views of the ocean (just footsteps away), mountains, and lush gardens. Our treatment center was designed to reflect and complement its surroundings - creating a peaceful, relaxing environment that will help women connect to their inner selves while on their journey towards recovery. We also offer a Partial Hospitalization (Day) Program in Maui and a Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program accessible to all residents of Hawaii.
Anita Johnston, Ph.D.
'Ai Pono Hawaii is under the clinical leadership of Dr. Anita Johnston, Ph.D., CEDS, author of Eating in the Light of the Moon. Dr. Johnston has been treating eating disorders for over 35 years. She founded the Anorexia & Bulimia Center of Hawaii in 1982 and the 'Ai Pono Intensive Eating Disorder Program on Oahu in 2001. In 1986, she developed Hawaii's first inpatient eating disorders program at Kahi Mohala Hospital.
Philosophy
We recognize that eating disorders are complex problems with emotional, nutritional, and biochemical components, but we do not view women who struggle with these problems as irreparably damaged. Rather, we see them as highly intuitive, sensitive beings who developed an obsession with food, fat, and dieting as a way of coping with social and psychological stress. We see the recovery process as a journey towards self-awareness. "When a woman enters the labyrinth of recovery, she follows a twisting, winding path to her center. Finding a sense of who she is as a woman, she exits with a new way of being in the world."
