Leland House is a 45-day crisis stabilization and residential treatment program for youth who’ve experienced a severe behavioral or emotional challenge that’s interfering with daily living.
We empower youth to overcome challenges through:
- Individual, group, and family therapy
- Medication management and weekly psychiatry sessions
- Psycho-education and independent living groups; recreational and pet therapy
- Social-skill development through experiential and project-based learning
- Individualized academic instruction on SOL curriculum and IEP goals (led by onsite Fairfax County school teachers)
Who We Serve
We serve males, females, and gender-diverse youth ages 12-17 (at admission) who are demonstrating unsafe behaviors that require a crisis-stabilization placement. All youth must be a resident of Fairfax County, Fairfax City, or the City of Falls Church.
Our Areas of Expertise
- Trauma histories
- Mood and anxiety disorders
- Emotional, social, and behavioral challenges
- Minimum IQ of 68 (with exceptions)
*We cannot accept youth who are regularly aggressive.
What to Expect
While the youth’s treatment is our core focus, family engagement is key to well-rounded success. Parent/guardians are expected to be involved in treatment so they may practice relational skills and address areas of conflict.
