Community Day Program

Guys on BenchThe Franciscan Friars of the Atonement have a prominent local presence, and are well-known and respected for their care of the neediest and most marginalized in society, including those suffering from the disease of addiction. For this reason, in 2005, St. Christopher’s Inn opened the Community Day Program.

The Community Day Program is open to people in the local community who are in need of high-quality substance use disorder treatment, but do not need to live in our shelter. Participants attend community meeting, lecture and group therapy five days a week, and have the opportunity to participate in other services such as pastoral counseling and self-help meetings.

In addition, clients who have lived at St. Christopher’s Inn, and completed the Day Rehabilitation Program, are offered an opportunity to transition to the Community Day Program on a case by case basis. This provides an effective way of staying connected to the support network they established at the Inn as they transition back to their communities.
