The Ranch at Riverhead works closely with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, the Department of Social Services and the Department of Corrections to provide beds to children and young adults in need.

We currently accept referrals from the following counties:
  • Suffolk, NY
  • Nassau, NY
  • Orange, NY
  • Schenectady, NY
  • Rockland, NY

The referral process begins with a team of clinical experts reviewing the individual’s needs to determine if the Ranch at Riverhead is a good match.

  • Once in contact with a clinical staff member, applicants must complete a formal review process.
  • Timothy Hill is not a substance recovery center, while support services are provided all applicants must be drug free before they may become eligible for the program.
  • The length of our application process varies by an applicant’s situation and commitment level. Applicants who demonstrate a high level of commitment have the potential to be placed more quickly into our program. Entry into a Ranch home depends on many variables, including space availability, age, demonstrated commitment, and medical stability.

If you know of young person between the ages of 11 and 25 that you think would benefit from placement in one of our residential programs or would like to learn more about The Ranch at Riverhead and the referral process please contact one of the staff members below:
