Leland House

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.
