Finding Direction. Realizing Dreams.

Welcome to Stillwater, a residential treatment facility (RTF) for children who experience serious and persistent emotional and psychiatric problems requiring intensive treatment.

We are located in the beautiful, calm surroundings of Upstate New York. The environment we provide is nurturing; a safe haven where children struggling with emotional and psychiatric difficulties can heal and learn coping skills leading to a positive future.

Stillwater is a safe and structured environment where children receive the treatment they need and families learn skills and strategies to help them succeed, as they are guided along the path to a better life.

Stillwater RTF is a nonprofit organization, licensed by New York State Office of Mental Health and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations. The children and families we serve are referred to us by the New York State Office of Mental Health Pre-Admission Certification Committee. They come from a 21 county area in New York State.

We provide comprehensive and compassionate care in a setting that is child and family focused with the goal of successfully transitioning the children to a return to their home and home communities.

Located in tranquil Greene, New York our campus offers the added beauty of its natural rural setting. Our many acres of grounds include an organic vegetable and flower garden, areas for active play, walking, or quiet solitude. The facility houses a school, dining areas and kitchen, boys’ and girls’ living areas and bedrooms, a nursing clinic, therapeutic areas – including a state-of-the-art multi-sensory room, recreational areas and gymnasium, administrative offices, and living rooms suitable for private family visits.
