Telehealth (Virtual) Programs & Opportunities
As part of its COVID-19 emergency response to support men through their recovery, St. Christopher’s Inn began offering telehealth (online) services in 2020. These services began with short-term plans to meet the immediate needs of the community and surrounding area, but because of its effectiveness, success and popularity, SCI’s telehealth programming is now a permanent fixture available to those eligible.
You can expect the same high quality care as the men in SCI’s Residential Treatment Program based at Graymoor in Garrison, NY. SCI’s telehealth services and program opportunities include:
- Group Therapy
- Individual Sessions
- Family Sessions
- Relapse Prevention & Continued Care for Alumni
Treatment planning is developed collaboratively with qualified clinical staff members and individuals seeking services. In addition to the above services, all participants have access to SCI’s extensive network of resources and connections for further support.
- Must be 18 or older
- New York Resident (city or state)
- Reliable access to the Internet
- Smartphone, camera-equipped computer or tablet
For individuals not currently enrolled in SCI’s Day Rehabilitative Program, please complete and submit our online admission and referral form (click here). Most insurances are accepted as well as Medicaid. Sliding scale payment options are also available (based on a case-by-case).
SCI’s Admissions Department will review the referral form to determine if additional information is needed. The team will then schedule a preliminary telephone interview to evaluate and assess a potential telehealth treatment plan.
If an applicant meets all criteria and eligibility for telehealth treatment, a certified clinician from the St. Christopher’s Inn Counseling Department will conduct an admission assessment. This is based on clinical and psychosocial factors and assessment tools, to make a final determination for admission.
Scheduling (as of December 2023)
- Evening: Tuesday and Thursday (6:00pm-7:00pm)
- Morning: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (10:00am-11:00am)
All services are HIPPA compliant.
