Sun rising on new initiative to reduce alcohol consumption

With excessive alcohol consumption affecting approximately 132,000 people across western Sydney, this week’s edition comes at an opportune time to promote a new alcohol initiative - Daybreak.

Commissioned by the Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) to increase treatment options for those experiencing mild to moderate alcohol issues, Daybreak, developed by Hello Sunday Morning, is a smartphone app that enables patients to access a support network and trained coaches to help them reduce their alcohol intake.

Currently, demand for mild to moderate alcohol treatment is two to three times the available supply. As an online solution, Daybreak has no waitlists and patients can begin receiving support as soon as the app is downloaded.

Daybreak is available at no cost to patients who receive a referral code from their GP. Throughout February local practices across the region will be receiving information packs containing further details and promotional items.

To learn more about Daybreak, contact the WentWest helpdesk on (02) 8811 7117 or visit

Daybreak is a new free app to support individuals concerned with their alcohol consumption.
