Welcome To Daybreak Treatment

Since 1992, Daybreak Treatment Center has provided exceptional day treatment for children, adolescents, and their families. Daybreak could be right for your family if your child is struggling in any of these areas: impulsivity; emotional regulation; suicidal thoughts or self harm; chronic depression or anxiety; intense family conflicts; unstable sudden mood swings; angry outbursts; poor boundaries; school failure or avoidance. Daybreak is designed to help children and adolescents become more capable of making healthy, responsible, and realistic decisions. Daybreak’s staff works closely with outside professionals to provide an affordable, effective, treatment experience.
