Our new Dayhab, situated in Percy Street, Fitzrovia, W1 just off Tottenham Court Road will open its doors in July 2021. This easily accessible West End location will also serve as the headquarters for Help Me Stop and following the successful launch of our West London unit in 2018 will be our second London Dayhab facility. As part of our planned expansion a third Dayhab and our first residential Detox facility will be opening in South East London at the end of 2021.
This expansion presents an opportunity for clients who live or work within commuting distance of London to access intensive addiction treatment in an easily accessible, convenient location.
We are currently undertaking assessments and accepting referrals for clients to commence treatment on Monday July 19th, 2021 with the Central London office opening on Monday the 12th of July.
Breaking down the stigma associated with treatment or the labels of 'addict' or 'alcoholic' by bringing help to the high street. Help Me Stop is making leaps and bounds in the treatment sector with a reputation for quality care.
Here at Help Me Stop we work with a proven model of rehabilitation. Recovery within everyday living means that the initial shock of returning from residential treatment is not an obstacle to overcome when transitioning back into everyday life. ‘Rehab in the real world’ has proven very successful for Help Me Stop clients, here is what one of our recent alumni had to say:
“The Dayhab model is a brilliant idea and very suitable for those who know they have a problem but don't want to be in residential rehab for whatever reason / have other commitments. I also find the model helpful because "real life" takes place alongside the rehabilitation. The fees for HMS are very reasonable and helped make my decision to try it quite an easy one. I was very impressed with how quickly HMS responded to me when I first reached out for help, and how fast the assessment by Chris, and getting me onto the programme, was. You really understand that when people ask for help then they need to get it fast, not a week on Tuesday or next month or whatever like other programmes do. You guys also never cancel. I have tried previous outpatient programmes where sessions were cancelled -- pre-COVID so that wasn't the reason. Just lack of organisation. HMS did not have that problem. I really appreciate the support and guidance HMS gave me and believe it could genuinely be a turning point for me. Thank you.”
At HMS we offer a warm and welcoming environment. It is a safe, non-judgmental, caring and compassionate place. The look and feel of the space is non-clinical, which makes you feel right at home. We operate in a peaceful atmosphere which assists in facilitating the client’s recovery process.
The Help Me Stop team of experienced and qualified therapists and staff members are all in long-term recovery, helping to foster an environment of understanding and empathy. Our team of psychotherapists are in personal recovery and experienced at working with drug and alcohol addiction. All of our staff at Help Me Stop have a genuine desire to help and understand how it feels to be 'stuck' in addiction.
The Q1 2021 survey from our alumni shows that 100% of graduates agree that Help Me Stop:
A vast majority of our graduates also stated that the Dayhab model and affordable pricing were the top two factors that influenced their decision to choose Help Me Stop.
Bringing this model to a Central London location we hope to help many more people to enter into abstinence based recovery, giving them the best possible start in their new lives free from problematic substance use.
Here is more of what our clients had to say…
“I did not think HMS would have the impact that it did, from my very first call with the Admissions Manager Chris to the first 1-1 with my therapist Tony when I really connected with the programme and then on to the different activities we did throughout my 6 weeks. The staff at HMS and the programme have changed my life, i didn't think it would be possible for me to be sober this long and to have completely changed my mindset. I couldn't thank the staff at HMS enough. “
“I have left the program a much better version of myself with the tools in my pocket to successfully continue on my recovery journey.”
“Help Me Stop has helped me massively and I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to get the help I needed”
Many people cite reasons such as, family or work commitments, or how rehab is very expensive, often making it an inaccessible for those who are seeking help.
Our new location is very convenient and gives people the opportunity to recover in an environment that is accessible, and still in the ‘real’ world. Many people in the city suffer with alcohol and substance misuse problems. The new location puts Help Me Stop on the Central London map and Dayhab in one of the most accessible places in the world. With this new addition we hope to break down another barrier to rehabilitation and also the stigma attached with addiction or alcoholism by bringing it out of the shadows and into the high street.
