Crescent House supports individuals who were previously trapped in cycles of crisis and relapse to take first steps towards recovery. It is a place where people who are in need of a place to lay their head can find shelter for a night, a place to sleep off substances, if that is needed, without judgement – and a chance to see that there are people who care, and, just maybe, other options for their future than what they have known.
Crescent house also offers up to 6 crisis stabilization beds, providing longer stabilization for individuals seeking additional services. Created in 2001 as part of the walking to wellness project, this part of the program demonstrates the success of treating clients with co-occurring disorders according to an integrated service approach. The comfortable home has a pleasant garden that helps create a sense of tranquility and is located near the regional hospital and other health services.
