LORD FAIRFAX HOUSE
Who we are...
The Council on Alcoholism, Lord Fairfax Community, Inc. established the Lord Fairfax House in 1976 and moved it to its current location in August 1984. The Lord Fairfax House is a co-ed community transitional residential facility for those suffering from chemical dependency. It is licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. It is a safe and sober environment where individuals can engage in the disciplines of long-term sobriety and learn the skills needed to begin or return to a valued life situation.
Searching for hope? Well, you're right on time.
WHAT WE ARE...
The Lord Fairfax House is an alcohol/drug free environment operated by individuals with backgrounds in substance abuse services. Some are, themselves, recovering alcoholics/drug addicts.
We are a non-profit system of residential services for men and women seeking a new healthy chemical-free life that includes re-integration with and contribution to family and community, financial security, and growth opportunities. In other words, we provide a structured environment for serious people so that they can turn hope into action.
The primary qualifying factor for admission is
A DESIRE TO BE CLEAN & SOBER
Eligibility and What we expect…
The Lord Fairfax House offers services to chemically dependent adults. There is an interview and assessment process prior to acceptance.

from those that have come before you...
"Upon entering CALFC I was an addict who was desperate, homeless and needed a chance to rebuild my life, this program gave me that chance. They introduced me to a Twelve Step program, gave me structure and stability, taught me about sober living and how to become a productive member of society. CALFC saved my life." - 2013 Resident
"The house saved me from living on the streets, drinking, and committing suicide. They provided emotional support and structure." - 2016 resident.
"It's not a treatment center. It's your first home in a new life of recovery. It opens your eyes and mind to the miracle of sobriety." June-September 2015
