Begin Your Journey with Crescent Moon Recovery  

Crescent Moon Recovery has locations and sober living houses in both Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley, California. We offer high-quality substance and alcohol use disorder treatment by utilizing evidence-based therapy and support with a patient-centered focus. We will always put our participants first, considering their goals and needs throughout every stage of recovery from drug or alcohol use. 

Because Crescent Moon Recovery is so conveniently located, we are able to take advantage of the beautiful beach weather, outdoor activities, and surrounding communities to ensure our participants maintain a positive outlook throughout this journey. Alongside one-on-one treatment and therapy, our participants will be invited to enjoy all the activities this area has to offer. 

Crescent Moon Recovery is located 35 miles south of Los Angeles, California. This allows us to serve residents of this county at a facility that is well-equipped and JCAHO accredited for treating the effects of substance abuse. With dual-diagnosis treatment, we will support the needs of our participants with co-occurring disorders and effectively treat substance use disorder with a long-term approach. 

Substance Use Disorder Treatment in Los Angeles 

Substance use disorder (SUD) occurs when an individual is unable to stop chronic drug or alcohol use regardless of the negative effects it has on their health, wellbeing, relationships, and finances. It is a chronic disorder that will change the reward circuits in the brain to seek substances for their euphoric effects. Oftentimes, mental health disorders can influence and be worsened by substance use. When an individual attempts to stop using, they may experience psychological or physical withdrawal symptoms that make it difficult or even dangerous. 

Our team at Crescent Moon Recovery is prepared to support and provide treatment for anyone suffering from the effects of SUD in a safe environment with medical professionals. Through peer support, group therapy, and individual therapy, our professionals will cater to each participant’s unique needs during their time in our program and through aftercare following treatment. Our participants’ safety is our main focus, and we will ensure they recover from substance use and restore their lives and bodies. 

Crescent Moon Recovery can offer our services to individuals in the Los Angeles area who are addicted to substances such as: 

  • Cocaine 
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines 
  • Alcohol 
  • Heroin 
  • Ecstasy 
  • Opioids 
  • Methamphetamine
  • Painkillers 
  • Marijuana 

Through proven addiction therapies and ongoing support, the participants of our addiction treatment programs will reach lasting recovery from drug or alcohol use and co-occurring disorders. It is not easy or considered medically safe to stop the use of drugs or alcohol without the presence of medical professionals. Our staff at Crescent Moon will walk with our participants through every stage of recovery.

Treatment Programs at Crescent Moon Recovery 

Crescent Moon Recovery offers outpatient treatment programs to anyone struggling with substance abuse around the nation, but it is conveniently located for residents of Orange, Los Angeles, and surrounding counties. Through open discussion upon admittance into Crescent Moon, our addiction treatment professionals will learn of the participant’s needs in recovery and determine the appropriate level of care. SUD affect each individual and their loved ones differently, which then requires unique, patient-centered treatment. 

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is the highest level of care provided at Crescent Moon Recovery. This co-ed program is most suited for individuals who have completed detox treatment and are in need of a more encompassing, structural level of care. PHP is also known as a day treatment program, in which participants will visit our facilities each day for group and individual therapy and then return home or to sober living homes.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Crescent Moon Recovery offers the same treatment options as residential care, but participants will remain living at home or in a sober living home provided by our facility. This program will require participants to be onsite five days a week. During this time, professionals will work closely with them to address any co-occurring disorders or trauma that may have influenced substance use. Intensive outpatient is more suitable for people who are considered at a lower risk of relapse.

Outpatient Treatment Program 

Outpatient treatment at Crescent Moon Recovery will help individuals transition back into their regular lives while they still receive additional support from therapists, caseworkers, and medical staff. Through group counseling and continued individual therapy, participants will learn about substance abuse and how it affects their life. They will begin to learn positive coping mechanisms to manage stress once they begin to return to work or school.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment 

Mental health disorders and substance use disorder (SUD) are commonly co-occurring. The effects of mental health disorders can influence an individual’s desire to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol, but this often has adverse effects. Crescent Moon Recovery acknowledges this relationship and will begin to treat co-occurring disorders to ensure our participants completely recover from SUD. 

Crescent Moon Recovery offers dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring disorders in Orange and its surrounding counties in California. Our licensed and experienced therapists and psychiatrist will begin to treat co-occurring disorders such as: 

  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Codependency 
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Through peer support groups and individual therapy, our participants will be able to approach these co-occurring disorders in a trusted, accepting environment that puts their positive change as the main focus. By treating both disorders at once, individuals will become aware of the relationship these two disorders share and be prepared for the challenges that will come in recovery. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) will educate participants on how to identify and counter self-destructive behaviors that can lead to substance use. 

Sober Living Activities in Los Angeles 

Because Crescent Moon Recovery is only an hour away from downtown Los Angeles, we invite our participants to enjoy these opportunities to have fun during their time in treatment. Crescent Moon Recovery utilizes experiential therapy, in which participants are able to channel their emotions into healthy activities, which allows them to be more receptive to change. What better place to begin learning about oneself through fun, sober, team-building activities than the beautiful Los Angeles, California? 

Theme Park Visits 

Disneyland is only 30 minutes away from Crescent Moon Recovery, and we have been known to make quite a few appearances there. Revisiting childhood memories and forming new ones in a life of recovery can be just the motivation needed to continue progress in the program. 

Beach Days 

The participants at Crescent Moon Recovery are no strangers to the water and sand. By kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, and bike riding, our participants will be able to engage their bodies in a beautiful environment with their peers. This will allow them to relieve stress and build lifelong bonds to support them through recovery. 

Outdoor Peer-Led Support Groups 

Even though we have a top-notch facility, nothing can beat the Southern California climate. Oftentimes, our participants will find themselves meeting for a peer-led support group outdoors. Conducting counseling in a natural environment will remove the clinical atmosphere that participants may not be as comfortable with. 


Spas are relaxing and can help naturally detox the body so individuals can feel refreshed and clean as they continue the work they are doing for themselves. Feeling well physically will positively contribute to participants’ progress toward total recovery from substance use disorder by motivating them to make healthy and positive changes. 

Alumni Services 

Crescent Moon Recovery will continue to provide our services and support to anyone who is graduating from our treatment programs. Because we are determined to prepare our participants for their new lives in recovery, aftercare begins the moment they start their treatment program. Once they have completed all of the steps necessary, we will tailor their discharge plan with a variety of resources including a Crescent Moon Recovery Alumni Membership. 

Our alumni often remain in contact with staff and are welcome back for events and barbecues frequently. If an alumnus is struggling and reaches out, they can visit our facilities for the day to remember where they started and see how far they’ve come. They can visit some of the people who impacted them most during their time here, and this can be the push they need to continue down their road to recovery. Alumni are also welcomed back to speak to current participants, giving them a sense of fulfillment, purpose, and camaraderie.

If alumni reside in Los Angeles County, it will be easy to visit some familiar faces and meet up with some of their peers if they are experiencing challenges or if they want to share a triumph. This additional layer of support will be a comforting factor in our participant’s journey. 

Los Angeles NA Meetings 

There are thousands of meetings weekly all around the Los Angeles area. This makes it very convenient for anyone in need of support with abstaining from drinking or drug use. Going to peer-support meetings will help individuals make meaningful connections, solve problems, and learn more about their SUD and how it affects their lives.

In meetings and support groups, individuals will share their experiences with a group of understanding people who have been through similar experiences. Spending time with this group of people each week will help them hold each other accountable in sobriety and build companionship. It has been proven that continuing to attend peer-led support groups following treatment decreases the probability of relapse.
