St. Christopher’s Inn is open and currently accepting new clients into all levels of care. In order to ensure the health and safety of our clients and staff, all prospective clients are being thoroughly COVID-screened and cleared according to CDC, WHO & NYSDOH guidelines prior to admission to our Residential & Shelter program. Although we fast-track clients who have been COVID cleared and under care at other inpatient facilities for at least 7 days, all in need are invited to contact us.
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 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.
