In 1999, Steve Crow founded Harrison House, an alcohol and drug abuse treatment program that serves the DC area. Over two decades, the treatment center has served nearly 5,000 clients through an intensive 28-day residential program and additional outpatient services.
In 2016, Steve recruited leaders from (and friends of) the recovery community to establish The Harrison House Foundation - a non-profit independent of Harrison House - "to provide support to individuals who are battling against their addictions, regardless of financial circumstances".
The Foundation provides scholarships for at-risk clients who are unable to pay for treatment. Harrison House makes a 2:1 match for each dollar donated to the Foundation for services. (The cost for the residential program is $270/day, or roughly $7,500/28 days.)
The Foundation has also launched a community awareness campaign through its quarterly speaker series. In the first installment on Saturday March 4th, Steve (pictured, above) gave an oral history of his work and welcomed two Harrison House graduates to share their stories. Future speakers will include local medical professionals, law enforcement/EMS personnel, and other community members and leaders who can assist in educating and furthering the cause to treat substance abuse.
In remembrance of our dear friend Steve Crow, Harrison House Foundation is pleased to announce the Steve Crow Memorial Scholarship through which we will continue Steve’s mission to assist people recovering from substance abuse.
