Residential Redesign Treatment Services
Residential Redesign (RR) at St. Christopher’s Inn is a New York State OASAS licensed 820 residential program that operates 24 hours, seven days a week, and provides long-term integrated treatment services to residents. Healing from alcohol and substance use takes time and clinical consideration to all areas in a person’s life that may have been negatively affected. Through a person-centered treatment approach, SCI assists all the men of the Inn who we call “Brothers Christopher” along their path of recovery.
Residential Treatment Program
Brothers Christopher enrolled in the residential program stay in our designated residential beds within the Inn. DSS and HRA assistance is used for room and board and daily living needs and helps accommodate stays that can last six months to over a year. All Department of Social Services (DSS) and Human Resources Administration (HRA) cases are transferred to SCI during an individual’s treatment and transferred back to the county of origin once treatment is completed. As prolonged exposure to treatment communities yields higher recovery outcomes and individual goals being met, this level of care is optimal for those seeking a sustained sober lifestyle.
Day Rehabilitation Program
The Day Rehabilitation Program (DRP)
The DRP at St. Christopher’s Inn is a New York State OASAS-licensed 822-day rehabilitation and clinic-level treatment program that meets seven days a week and combines cutting-edge trends with traditional best practices to deliver a quality of care that is second to none.
Shelter and Outpatient Treatment
Brothers Christopher attending DRP may reside at the Inn while attending treatment through the generosity of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. This has many benefits and assists in reminding the men that no matter what they have done or where they have been, they are now in a safe place and loved. Inn beds for DRP are limited, and admission depends on availability. The typical stay in DRP is approximately 75 to 90 days, with an average of 85 days.
