Criteria for Admissions
The Admissions Office accepts requests for admission from clients themselves, from concerned family members, and from referral agencies such as detoxification units, outpatient clinics, or inpatient rehabilitation programs.

- Aged 18 or over
- Medically Stable
- Psychiatrically Stable
- Financially Cleared (Treatment Payment Options)
If you are currently not in a treatment program, and you are seeking admission to St. Christopher’s Inn, please contact one of our intake coordinators at one of these numbers:
845-335-1020 – to speak with Intake & Admissions Staff
845-335-1022 – to speak with Intake & Outreach Manager
You can also email us at SCIAdmissions@AtonementFriars.org for more information.
If you are being referred for admission to St. Christopher’s Inn by another agency such as a detoxification unit, an inpatient rehabilitation program, or a crisis center, please have a staff member at the referring agency complete the forms attached below. The more information provided the better to ensure a timely scheduled bed date if the client is deemed appropriate for treatment.
