ABOUT RANCH HOPE INC. ALLOWAY CAMPUS – BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES
Ranch Hope, Inc. is a faith-based treatment community that operates several facilities and thrift stores throughout southern New Jersey. At its Alloway Campus, about 30 minutes east of Wilmington, Del., the behavioral healthcare organization runs two specialty homes for “medically fragile” boys aged 12 to 16 with co-occurring disorders and a history of trauma.
There’s also 43-bed Residential Intensity of Service (IOS) Program.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the organization’s website, admission into Ranch Hope’s two specialty homes requires that applicants be males between the ages of 12 and 16, diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, and have a co-occurring disorder.
Both situated in the Alloway Campus’ treatment community, the five-bed Omega House and the seven-bed Campbell House provide boys with one-on-one therapy and medically monitored, trauma-informed care. They’ll have opportunity for self-esteem building, life skills training, and take part in a skill-focused, academic curriculum. “High levels of family involvement” can also be expected.
Ranch Hope staffs an experienced team of master’s level social workers, a board-certified pediatric doctor, therapists, and administrative professionals.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Ranch Hope’s various programs can collectively house more than 55 boys at a time. The newly-constructed Residential Treatment features private bedrooms, a kitchen, and laundry facilities, “all for a maximum of 4 youth per home.” Also on-site at the Alloway campus is a swimming pool, a fitness center, an activity center, and outdoor areas used for recreation.

WHAT STAFF SAY
In their Best-rehabs.com survey, a staff member reported many successful outcomes over their 12 years employment at Ranch Hope: “I have seen many clients who had previously made bad choices become successful members of society and obtain jobs or continue their education after their stay at Ranch Hope.”
The anonymous staff member felt that communication between the organization’s different departments – namely its residential, administrative, and academic ones – could be improved. Still, they gave their employer high marks for its counseling options, its “caring” staff’s level of training and experience, and its administrative and discharge processes, amongst other categories.
There is currently no information provided on the organization’s webpage or otherwise regarding its treatment costs. The anonymous staff member found treatment here both affordable and cost-worthy.
