          Who we are:  New Horizons is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization:  FEIN #99-0354544  Educational Non Profit - FEIN #99-0354544  “One Achord” est. 2001   Operating under  State of Hawaii Trade name:  New Horizons Counseling      Registration 2010 – Certificate #4074671     New Horizons is part of SEATA, the national substance abuse coalition and is listed on Guidestar – a watchdog website for nonprofit verification.  New Horizons is also SAMHSA approved (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) organization and is listed on their website.

          There is a humble little program happening about four times a year on the North Shore, where intriguing and potentially life changing events are going on.  Mark Turansky, CSAC, Addictions Specialist and Executive Director of New Horizons Counseling, offers a unique recovery program called “Treatment Camp” for those struggling with the slavery of addictive behavior.

In 2012, Mark released the book:  “Figure it, Face it & Fix it – Your surprising solution to addiction and substance abuse” where the success principles of the New Horizons approach are revealed.  For more info:

          In a world where we expect certain outcomes based on logic, and are often hard-pressed to be convinced of new ideas, counter-intuitive programs like New Horizons are both surprising and inspiring.  The New Horizons approach does indeed follow logical lines of thought and reason, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (C.B.T.).  C.B.T., in a nut shell, means if you change your thinking you can change your behavior.  It is not a new idea, by any means; but with this fresh, insightful approach, the New Horizons recovery program hits the nail on the head for giving those struggling with addiction the tools to face their challenge squarely, and gain control over their lives once again.

          I was pleasantly surprised by Treatment Camp, and the New Horizons approach.  Sometimes answers come from unlikely or unexpected sources.  I especially like the quote Mark has on his website: “We are not here to judge you; we are here to help you.”  This is the feeling I got from this program, and the people involved.  If you are at your wits end, tired of hurting yourself and the ones you love because of your addiction, consider the New Horizons recovery program. It may surprise you.
