Youth For Tomorrow (YFT) held the grand opening for its Loudoun County Regional Behavioral Health Office for clinical behavioral services on October 9, 2018.

The new YFT Loudoun Regional Office is located at 19415 Deerfield Avenue in Lansdowne. Staff includes a licensed clinical psychologist and two licensed clinical social workers. YFT accepts private insurance and Medicaid, making its services available and affordable to anyone including underserved populations.

YFT began offering outpatient behavioral health services in 2012and maintains  five Regional Offices serving over 1,500 children and adults each month – including veterans and military families.

YFT provides diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of issues including but not limited to:                   

  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic symptoms
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Anger issues
  • Obsessive-compulsive issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Self-harm
  • Attachment and  co-occurring disorders

  • Attention deficits
  • Familial and relational issues.

YFT holds the highest level of national accreditation among programs providing behavioral health care clinical services, being awarded national accreditation from the Joint Commission (Oakbrook Terrace, IL.), which evaluates health care organizations throughout the nation for their standards of care.

Youth For Tomorrow is a non-profit organization with a distinguished 32-year record of success in providing effective behavioral health services to children of all ages and adults in crisis. YFT opened its doors in 1986 to boys with behavioral issues and provided them with residential care including counseling and education. In 2003, YFT added services to girls, in 2007, pregnant teens and mothers and in 2009, sexually abused and trafficked girls.

The outstanding success of YFT’s residential program for boys and girls led to requests that it provide behavioral health services in public schools and in the larger community. YFT now provides services in 48 public schools in Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun Counties.
