Richard E. Sechrest's past research examined the efficacy of culturally derived interventions in substance abuse treatment with Asian and Pacific Islander women in a rural location on the island of Hawaii.  The treatment program, Hui Ho’ola O Na Nahulu O Hawai’i (translated: the gathering that gives life back to the people of Hawai’i), integrated conventional substance abuse treatments such as group therapy, family therapy, career counseling, and family-related services with more unconventional treatment strategies. Dr. Sechrest plans to become involved in assessing seeming barriers to therapy, both geographic and philosophic, that reduce continuation of therapy for minority clients or special populations.
