A Place for Healing
Through Horses & Art
Crescent Moon's program is hosted by the Solano Land Trust at Rush Ranch in Suisun, CA, a 2070 acre nature preserve of rolling marshland hills. It is a land rich in cultural history, once home to the Patwin Indians. It primarily serves the needs of people who live in Solano County and the Greater Bay Area, but accepts participants from other counties and beyond.
Crescent Moon Center’s mission is to build a community of support around individuals recovering from substance use disorders by:
(1) offering equine-assisted learning and expressive arts programs;
(2) creating a lens of discovery into addiction;
(3) embracing diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our organization; and
(4) advocating for change in the public’s perception
of substance use disorders.
Crescent Moon Center is a program for people who have exhausted their resources trying to maintain sobriety, or who have not been able to take advantage of costly recovery programs and/or who are searching for new and creative ways to enhance their sobriety.
We offer a bridge for people working on recovery, a bridge that helps avoid relapse, a bridge to a meaningful and life-fulfilling engagement with community.
Crescent Moon offers arts and equine programs designed to integrate with one another, each providing a unique lens of self-discovery.
Through co-creative expression and equine-assisted learning, Crescent Moon Center offers an experiential approach to recovery, one that is based on learning through personal observation and interactive experience. This experiential approach is followed by reflection, integration and application of newly learned perspectives.
Our multi-cultural co-creative educational programs are for people who have exhausted their resources trying to maintain sobriety, those who have not been able to take advantage of costly recovery programs, or those who are looking for new and creative ways to enhance their recovery.
Crescent Moon bridges the gap between residential and outpatient programs, and sober living homes. We provide support for reintegration into meaningful personal relationships and employment.
You may have heard about, or known someone whose life has been touched by opioid, alcohol or other drug addiction - whose addiction has resulted in the loss of friends, family, work or, worse yet, resulted in the loss of a loved one.
Action can and must be taken to prevent substance use disorders from compromising lives. More programs and a community interested in helping those affected are needed to support long term recovery after treatment ends, or if treatment is unaffordable. This is our mission.
Together, we can be a moving force in creating an environment where recovery can become a dynamic, engaging, transforming and exciting process - and accessible to everyone.
