Crescent House supports individuals who were previously in cycles of crisis and relapse towards recovery.
Crescent House offers 6 crisis stabilization beds providing longer stabilization for individuals in need of additional services. This is a Nanaimo Assisted Living program and it is considered damp housing.
Crescent house stabilization beds are suited to clients that are unable to maintain abstinence from substances as well as clients that may require additional support. Crescent House is providing 3 meals per day, and supports clients through provision of a more home like environment.
Created in 2001 as part of the walking to wellness project, this program demonstrates the success of treating clients with co-occurring disorders according to an integrated service approach.
The comfortable home is located near the regional hospital and other health services. Access is through Island Health’s Mental Health and Substance Use teams.
