Help Me Stop’s Official Launch

Help Me Stop Official Launch

A breakthrough in how people access addiction treatment in the UK

Help Me Stop, the UK’s first Dayhab, is taking a major step to making rehab treatment accessible to all, by launching their first centre in West London last month (September’19). Branded “rehab in the real world”, Dayhab has shown to keep two in three participants abstinent nine months after completing in the US.

Addiction sufferers are made to choose between long waiting times for under-funded state services, or ‘luxury’ rehab that is too expensive for many and demands long periods of time away from home.

Since 2013 £163 million has been cut from the statutory provision of alcohol and drug rehab services, with more cuts scheduled for 2020. There is a national epidemic of addiction not being tackled in the UK with drastically limited options for those in need.

Help Me Stop’s non-residential treatment approach, known as Dayhab, is designed to fit around clients’ work, study and childcare.

At less than a tenth of the cost of typical residential rehabs, their programme makes treatment more available to the 97% of people who are seeking addiction help but are unable to access it.
