RIVERHEAD - Troubled teens now have a new option to help them transition from jail into mainstream society.

A transitional home at the Timothy Hill Children's Ranch will give former inmates a place to stay to deter them from previous behaviors. Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco says the facility, which can fit up to four teens and a staff person, will provide classes on self-discipline and vocational skills. Ex-inmates will also be able to continue their training in the Right Path Program, which they likely started while still behind bars.

DeMarco says prospective residents must show a desire to improve their lives in order to live in the home.
