#HTMF has partnered with many non-profit organizations right here in the 808 state. Feel free to reach out to any of our Teen Resource partners that help bring our #HTMF events to life.
Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii
The Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii provides innovative services that help keep Hawaii’s children and families healthy, strong, and resilient against drug and alcohol abuse. Formed in 1987 out of a spirit of business and community concern, CDFH is a highly regarded leader in the substance abuse prevention field.
Every child in the islands should have the opportunity to grow up drug-free. To accomplish this, we conduct nationally recognized family strengthening services, evidence-based programs for youth, capacity building with communities, training and technical assistance, and public awareness campaigns. Our Hawaii Prevention Resource Center also serves as the state’s center for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention and treatment educational materials, resources, and programs.

CRISIS NUMBERS (that should be in everyone’s phone!)
Crisis Text Line: Text ALOHA to 741-741
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
(FYI - this number is recommended over the local Crisis Line of Hawaii 808-832-3100 for O’ahu and 1-800-753-6879 neighbor island. Using the national number ensures that you can speak with a live person as quickly as possible – it has a line for veterans and will re-route the call to crisis counselors in other states if our local call center is busy)
Trevor Helpline for LGBTQ Youth: 1-866-4U-TREVOR (488-7386)
Drugs and alcohol have a greater effect on teens than on adults. The signs of addiction can be difficult to understand, and many teens don’t realize the long-term damage drugs have on their bodies because the short-term side effects fade. Help is available for teens who have questions about drug abuse or think they are suffering from addiction. Recovery Specialists are available to assist anyone looking for assistance, through our 24/7 hotline (877-695-5395)
