The Twin Pillars Approach 


At The Dawn, we strive to ensure the correct balance between relaxation, work, rehabilitation and wellness. With a mixture of Eastern and Western treatment options, our team of experts have designed The Dawn’s own Twin Pillar Approach. By following these principles, our clients have the best possible chance to maintain long-term sobriety and healthy living.

Rehabilitation Programme

Our first pillar focuses on rehabilitation, equipping our clients with the tools needed to stop their negative behaviour and regain self-sufficiency. We focus on finding equilibrium, an essential step toward growth and development. The key element of our rehabilitation programme is the combination of cognitive-based therapies through the use of mindfulness approach to treatment.

Our primary treatment methods used include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – a common form of “talk-therapy,” CBT helps individuals identify negative thoughts and behaviours and learn healthier skills and habits
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) assists clients in mindfully recognising and getting in tuned with their negative thoughts, feelings and bodily sensation patterns
  • 12-step programme is a group therapy model that provides a forum for social support and peer discussion.
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) – this practice is based on a 3-part “moment to moment” sensation awareness experience through the mind and body


Understanding underlying motivations and developing the core lifestyle skills of discipline and self-restraint are essential to avoid making the same mistakes in the future. These utilisation of different types of treatment methods allow clients to adopt a wide range of coping strategies and lower the chances of relapse. Additionally, they will come to better understand the reasons why they make certain decisions and how to be proactive in developing their own happiness.

Wellness Programme


The second pillar of The Dawn’s holistic treatment is our highly regarded wellness programme, which is designed to provide a positive sense of wellbeing and mental fortitude required for a better future. Instead of focusing purely on the addiction, our programme looks at the individual and his or her strengths and capabilities.


This particular focus has helped to set The Dawn apart from many other treatment centres. When mastered, each of these elements reduces the need for individuals to resort to addictive substances or behaviours that are detrimental to their health and wellbeing. Our wellness programme contains a number of holistic elements, each designed to increase the overall wellbeing. These well-rounded approach to wellness help clients become happier, healthier and more productive members of society. Key components of our wellness programme include:

Mindfulness meditation


Mindfulness is becoming increasingly popular around the world as a treatment for drug and alcohol dependency. It is also a useful tool that helps combat mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. During mindfulness and meditation sessions at The Dawn, clients come to better understand their bodies and attain greater clarity of their thoughts. This includes learning how to deal with urges and cravings, thus developing a deep sense of relaxation and calm in stressful situations as they arise.
