Welcome to Daybreak - Drug Addiction Counselling, Therapy, Family Work and Training For Dagenham, Barking & Havering, Essex
Rebuilding families affected by addiction
Daybreak was set up by a local vicar the Revd Deryck Spratley in 1985 as a result of his concern for the drug related deaths of three young men in the local area of Barking and Dagenham. Since those days its aim has evolved within the community it set out to serve, always looking to how it can be of most help. As a result Daybreak is fully committed to helping where possible any member of a family affected by drug use not just the person with the addiction.
Daybreak’s commitment to the family is based upon 26 years experience which has shown that families where addiction is a problem are best served as a family unit rather than isolating the individual with the addiction problem. It also believes that early intervention with children from the family helps prevent similar behaviour from passing on to the next generation.
The clinical team consist of staff from various professional/clinical backgrounds who have earned an excellent reputation for providing a quality service which is confidential, safe and set within a comfortable friendly environment.
Daybreak is an independent charity which enables us to be innovative and responsive to emerging needs identified within the community. There is an ongoing strategy to develop and pilot new services and to maintain active involvement in current local community issues.
Our team have a broad range of professional qualifications and skills in teaching and training which also qualify us to train other professionals in the area of addiction and drug work and thereby offer accredited training courses and one day workshops for continued professional development (CPD).
