The Dawn Medical Rehab and Wellness Centre is Thailand’s leading holistic rehab and retreat for those struggling with alcohol addiction, drug addiction, behavioural addictions, trauma, depression, anxiety and burnout. Here at our calming riverside sanctuary in the city of Chiang Mai, in Northern Thailand, you’ll be poised to reap all the healing benefits of both Asian traditional practices and ground-breaking therapeutic innovations. Even if you’ve been resistant to treatment in the past, we believe that with enough personal attention paid to what truly drives your issues, you can experience deep transformation beyond what you ever thought what was possible.
Our holistic treatment approach takes your whole picture into account – your presenting issue, underlying issues, past experiences, relationships, environment and family dynamics – and addresses problems at their source to make sure they don’t recur. We’re different than most rehabs in Thailand in that we specialise in treating unresolved trauma, a hidden cause of most addictions and mental illnesses. You’ll receive a thorough assessment and custom-designed treatment plan, which will be adjusted over the course of your stay to ensure it’s meeting your ever-evolving needs.
Here at The Dawn, we take the time to get to know you. We don’t just look at the issue that brought you here, but your life as a whole, and all of the experiences that got you to where you are now. Unlike bigger rehabs where high turnover and an overwhelming number of clients can add to your stress, we keep things small and low-key. That means you’ll easily make friends with others in your programme, and you’ll have an all-access pass to our team for support whenever you need it. And while we may be known as the friendliest rehab in Asia, we take our commitment to upholding ethical treatment standards seriously. Our therapists are up-to-the-minute educated on the latest treatment techniques, and we offer onsite medical detox and innovative therapies not found anywhere else in Asia.
Led by David Smallwood, former clinical director of the Kusnacht Practice in Switzerland and manager of the Priory Hospital Addiction Unit in North London, our stellar team stays up-to-the-minute on the latest therapeutic developments in addiction and behavioural health. Our clients and staff are one big family, and as soon as you arrive, you’ll be welcomed into it. You won’t feel like a number here – everyone you come into contact with each day will know you by name. At The Dawn, we treat you as a person, not a problem.
We combine evidence-based techniques like CBT, DBT and the 12 Steps with modern treatment methods like neurofeedback for an all-encompassing approach to your recovery. Your conventional therapy will be enhanced by non-drug alternative therapies like mindfulness meditation, yoga and massage to help you relax into a therapeutic state and accelerate your progress. By learning new practices, you’ll gain the tools you need to deal with life’s temptations and challenges and stay confidently sober for the long haul.
Our tranquil grounds are set on the banks of the Ping River, on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, surrounded by picturesque rice fields and traditional Thai villages. You’ll feel cool and comfortable in your private resort-style accommodation, where you can sleep to the soothing sounds of the water and wake up to sunny skies, fresh air and stunning natural scenery. And you’ll have convenient access to our full range of services and amenities such as swimming pool, health spa, sauna, fitness centre and game room.
