Daybreak Family Services offers a wide range of opportunities to the community to
receive help and support from our services. While it is difficult to fully state the range of services offered, the following are the key components of the Daybreak program:
A key part of treatment is a thorough assessment of the individual and family issues present so that an appropriate diagnosis can be made. Our clinicians will use their experience and skill to complete assessments in a caring but effective manner to ensure the most accurate treatment plan of action possible. After the assessment is completed, a detailed treatment plan is developed and shared with the individual and/or family so they will understand the focus of treatment.

Experienced clinicians who are licensed or license eligible will meet with individuals in one on one sessions to address problems that have been identified. This approach takes as much focus and commitment from the client as it does from the clinician. Sessions will usually be for 45 minutes one time per week, but may at times occur more than one time a week. The value of individual sessions is clearly the opportunity it presents for an person to meet one on one confidentially and be able to express and work honestly on improving themselves as a person.

Where possible, Daybreak Family Services believes strongly in the importance of including the entire family. This allows the opportunity for skills to be taught about behavior management, or communication or just an opportunity to improve relationships. On occasion, the clinician may meet with the parents alone in order to work on specific skills or issues that need to be addressed without a child being present.


Working with children and adolescents in groups has long been evidenced to be a very effective means of treatment. Children and adolescents often feel more comfortable expressing their needs and feelings in a group of their peers.

Our therapists also provide case management to our clients who receive therapy. Our case management services include linkage, advocacy and referral assistance provided in partnership with the client, family members, law enforcement personnel, community agencies and other supports as needed.
