Review by Contributors


Founded in 1978, Daybreak Youth Services is a nonprofit that operates five facilities in Vancouver and Spokane, which provide residential and outpatient services for teens struggling with substance abuse and dual diagnosis. In Vancouver, services consist of residential treatment for boys aged 12 to 17 and outpatient treatment for boys and girls aged 10 to 18.

Residential services for girls and further outpatient services are available at the facility’s Spokane locations.


The length of stay in residential treatment varies according to the individual client’s needs. During residential treatment, clients participate in at least one hour of individual counseling weekly, as well as weekend family education sessions, family therapy, education about recovery, training in skills such as mindfulness and coping strategies, and multiple support meetings every week. Residents must also complete daily chores.

Support groups include gender-specific sessions as well as ones related to recovery, spirituality, and mental health. Holistic practices like yoga, art, music, and carpentry classes may also be integrated to facilitate recovery.

Outpatient programs consist of individual and group therapy as well as family education. Group counseling is offered in a variety of courses, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), relapse prevention, and independent living skills.


The treatment team includes medical staff, a psychiatrist, chemical dependency counselors, social workers, and mental health counselors.


The boys’ residential facility has 16 beds. Meals are prepared by staff, who try to accommodate dietary needs that are accompanied by a physician’s note. Recreational activities like CrossFit, basketball, and adventure programs are offered.


The single alum polled by to date, M.C., would recommend this facility, and gave it five out of five stars for its staff support and the overall quality of its individual and group counseling, as well as its exercise provisions; however, the center’s holistic options fared more poorly, receiving just one star. “Thats where i gained the knowledge and tools to live a successful life,” they wrote.

Elsewhere online at the time of this writing, the center has eight, perfect ratings for five out of five stars on its Facebook page, which it has the ability to edit.[1] Brianda, one of the only reviewers to leave commentary, wrote: "I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at daybreak. You saved my life!!!! Couldn't have done it without you."

Additionally, on Google to date, there are also eight, perfect five-star ratings.[2] Reviewers noted that the center was "Very nice" and a "Great place."


At the time of this writing, the Spokane location of the organization had an average rating of 3.2 out of five stars based on five reviews on Indeed, which is representative of the network as a whole which received 3.3 stars from nine total reviewers on this secondary site.[3] One five-star rating came from a volunteer and graduate who had a positive work-shadowing experience. Other employees expressed reservations about management, and one noted certain conditions that could impair the quality of treatment, writing: “The work is exhausting and taxing, very stressfull The rules change depending on the supervisors mood Training is poor at best Coworkers are hostile Moral is low.”


According to Daybreak’s website, its services are covered by most insurance carriers; prospective clients are encouraged to contact their provider to check coverage. The center also accepts Washington Medicaid, has at its disposal grants from the State of Washington and the State of Idaho, and operates its own scholarship fund for eligible clients.
