3.2 out of 5
Well-targeted social platform
Fee may be considered high/ some online community features are missing
Daybreak is mostly suitable for users facing mild to moderate problems with alcohol consumption. The focus on social support could be helpful for people who often do not seek out or receive professional support. At the time of review, the community was active. On the downside, at the time of review, some online community features were missing (e.g., the ability to follow a community member). Furthermore, since the program’s focus is on controlling drinking habits, additional information about alcohol consumption could be helpful.
Notes for Clinicians
Daybreak could be recommended as a supplement to ongoing treatment for patients dealing with alcohol consumption who may lack social support. Although the program is accessible to any user, it would probably be most beneficial to those who would like to but find it especially difficult to display and share their struggle in person. In these cases, the shield of anonymity might improve patients’ ability to share their struggles in person.
