5 WAYS to introduce DayHab for sustained recovery in Leeds

5 WAYS is launching a DayHab programme. The only one of its kind in the city, the DayHab will provide a structured programme of support for people who want to maintain their sobriety.

Designed as an extension of 5 WAYS’ existing range of groups and activities, the DayHab represents a significant step in providing comprehensive support for individuals striving to remain abstinent from alcohol and drugs in Leeds. The DayHab will offer a time-tabled daily programme, tailored to the needs of the participants, to ensure continuous guidance and encouragement throughout their recovery journey.

5 WAYS Lead Practitioner Matt Whitton said: “At 5 WAYS, our mission has always been to empower individuals in their journey towards sustained recovery. With the introduction of our DayHab programme, we are providing even greater support and resources to people committed to maintaining their abstinence from alcohol and drugs.”

By offering a structured programme that operates daily, 5 WAYS aims to fill a crucial gap in continuity of care to help more individuals achieve long-term sobriety.

The DayHab program will feature a diverse range of therapeutic activities, educational workshops, and peer-support groups, all facilitated by experienced professionals in the field of addiction recovery.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop essential life skills and build a supportive community of peers who share similar goals.

Matt Whitton continued: “We believe that sustained recovery is not just about abstinence but also about rebuilding lives and creating meaningful connections. With the DayHab programme, we will be creating a safe and nurturing environment where individuals can heal, grow, and thrive.

“The launch of the DayHab programme underscores our commitment to addressing the multiple needs of individuals in recovery and providing them with the tools and support necessary to lead fulfilling, substance-free lives.”

The DayHab is being supported through Leeds City Council using funding provided by the Office of Health Improvement and Disparities as part of the government’s 10-year drugs plan, From Harm to Hope.
