FIND A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH ALCOHOL

Why choose the Daybreak Program?

Life is full of challenges – and how we deal with them is different for everyone. If you find you’re drinking more to get through tough times, we can help you take the first step to changing your relationship with alcohol for the better.

HCF has partnered with non-profit Hello Sunday Morning to give members free access to additional services offered by Daybreak - an anonymous alcohol support program.

Connecting you with an online community of like-minded people facing the same challenges, the program provides access to Hello Sunday Morning trained health coaches and Daybreak Care Navigators for guidance in the app and other additional benefits available to HCF members.

Daybreak offers a welcoming and safe environment to help you change your drinking habits to benefit your health.
