ABOUT

CRESCENT MOON

CENTER

A Place for Healing

Through Horses & Art

 

OUR MISSION

Crescent Moon Center is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to build a community of support around people recovering from addiction by: 


(1) offering experiential equine-assisted learning and creative arts programs 
 

(2) improving access to recovery resources and programs for diverse, underserved and under-resourced communities 
 

(3) advocating for change in the public’s perception of substance use disorders
 

(4) developing coalitions and initiatives for addiction recovery support locally, regionally, and nationally

OUR VISION

Crescent Moon Center envisions a world where addiction is met with compassion -- where shame and stigma are no longer obstacles to recovery. 

Through advocacy, we give voice to the systemic and cultural barriers that negatively affect people impacted by addiction and facilitate public dialogue that will lead to a shared understanding and change. 

 

We offer a bridge for people in recovery, a bridge that helps avoid relapse, a bridge to a meaningful and life-fulfilling engagement with community.

 
 
 
 

GET

INVOLVED

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.​

 

"HOW WE RESPOND TO THIS [ADDICTION] CRISIS IS A MORAL TEST FOR AMERICA. ARE WE A NATION WILLING TO TAKE ON AN EPIDEMIC THAT IS CAUSING GREAT HUMAN SUFFERING AND ECONOMIC LOSS?

 

ARE WE ABLE TO LIVE UP TO THAT MOST FUNDAMENTAL OBLIGATION WE HAVE AS HUMAN BEINGS:

TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER?"
