Our Dayhab exists to make rehab more accessible, affordable, and achievable for those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. Our revolutionary programme means that our clients can access a non-residential rehab programme, either in London or online, at a fraction of the cost of traditional rehab. Our team members work with our clients closely to tailor our treatment programmes to each individual, and guide them in the direction of recovery. We utilise the 12 step approach, as well as integrative counselling, to give you the tools you need for recovery in the real world. 

We can also work with clients in one-to-one counselling who have a wide range of mental health and wellbeing needs, including depression, anxiety disorders, stress, relationship issues, all forms of addiction, debt issues, bereavement, and much more.

Read stories from past clients who have been through the programme, and get advice for life in recovery  Most of our team are in long-term recovery themselves, so they know exactly what it is like and what you’re going through. 

We are committed to supporting you and equipping you with the tools and information you will need beyond your time with us. For our Dayhab clients, we offer three months of aftercare free of charge following your programme, and we offer a range of resources to help beyond that point. 

If you are keen to learn more about Dayhab and how non-residential rehab in London and online could help you with addiction, then get in touch on +44(0)208 191 9191 or send us an email at and we will get back to you to talk through the options.

Please also get in touch for details of our one-to-one counselling packages, in London and online.
