Government Contributes to Development of Anti-Binge Drinking App


Thousands of Australians will benefit from a new program designed to help them cut down on alcohol, which the federal government has invested in.

The government pledged $3million towards the program- a mobile app called the Daybreak Program. The app offers access to professional health coaching. It also offers an anonymous support platform.

Health Minister Greg Hunt recently said of the government’s investment that alcohol is the third highest risk factor for premature death and disease in Australia. He said early intervention is important which is why the government is getting involved.
