NEW DETAILS: Daybreak Releases Statement On Friday's Temporary Closure

FULL STATEMENT: The Daybreak Spokane Inpatient facility operates two treatment programs:  a Chemical Dependency Treatment program for adolescents and a Secure Crisis Residential Center for youth who run away from home.

These programs are licensed under the jurisdictions of the Department of Health, the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, and the Children's Administration.

No single agency has full authority over all of the elements of the facility, and each agency has different rules and policies for the management of the treatment programs under their jurisdiction.

When the Daybreak facility was designed, each agency collaborated to create common ground for the implementation of the regulations. For the past 12 years, Daybreak has provided safe and effective services to the youth and families of Spokane and the surrounding region.

The Children's Administration is responsible for the oversight of the Secure Crisis Residential Center. They recently changed their interpretation of the standards related to the SCRC at this Daybreak facility, related to staff credentials and staffing patterns. Compliance with these changes requires certain Daybreak staff to upgrade their credentials and additional staff to be hired and trained.

Daybreak estimates that it will take at least three more weeks to have all staff trained and assigned to SCRC duties. We have agreed, at the request of the Children's Administration, to stop the admissions of clients to the SCRC until that time. These changes only affect admissions to the SCRC program in Spokane.

There is no change to the Daybreak substance abuse treatment programs provided at this facility, or at the various Daybreak locations in Spokane and Vancouver, Washington.

For more information, please call Tim Smith, Executive Director, at 509-370-4092

    SWEDESBORO, N.J.
