About Us


In February 2003, the Kauaʻi County Council unanimously adopted Resolution No. 2003-14, supporting the late Mayor Bryan J. Baptiste's community-based efforts to deal with the island-wide drug problem. Shortly thereafter, the County hired its first program coordinator and created the Anti-Drug Program under the Mayor's Office to educate the community, coordinate resources, secure funding, and oversee the development of a Community Drug Response Plan. The Anti-Drug Program was renamed Life's Choices Kauaʻi in 2012. The Program is now operating under the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney.


 Life's Choices Kauaʻi's Community Drug Response Plan includes a five-year collective vision for our community to:

  1. Promote excellent communication and coordination, and eliminate the substance abuse problem and its negative consequences on the island.
  2. Engage and empower the community to promote positive outcomes in their life's choices.
  3. Educate the public, rehabilitate substance abusers, and prosecute drug offenders in an effort to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life for the people of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau.
  4. Develop local access to affordable, effective drug treatment and support that offers hope for a successful and productive life. 

Life’s Choices Kauaʻi brings together community resources and service providers to combat and prevent substance abuse, build stronger families, foster a healthier community, support efforts to reduce the trafficking of illegal drugs on Kauaʻi, and encourage treatment supported by a continuum of care for the healing and reunification of individuals and families with the community.
