Daybreak Crisis Stabilization Unit
The Daybreak Crisis Stabilization Unit is the region’s only temporary, short-term (4-7 days), 24-hour alternative to hospitalization for children/adolescents ages 3-18 who are in emotional or behavioral crisis. Clinicians strive to reduce and stabilize acute psychiatric symptoms, and divert children from psychiatric hospitalization so they can return to their homes and function independently. Services include assessment of home life and the stress associated with the crisis; psychiatric intervention; individual and family therapy; linkage to longer-term treatment; case management; and medication management.
Fee: The Impact Plus program of Medicaid covers this service, as do many health insurance plans. The fees for some children may be underwritten through state funding. A sliding fee scale also is available.
Eligibility: Children/adolescents must be in temporary crisis (treatable in a short-term setting), and medically stable with no primary need for alcohol/drug treatment.
Referral: Accepts self-referral as well as from physicians, school counselors, and other mental health providers. To refer, contact Seven Counties’ Acute Child Psychiatric Services at (502) 589-8070 or 1-800-432-4510.
