ONE OF THE most exclusive holistic wellness centres AND addiction rehabs in ASIA 

The Dawn Medical Rehab and Wellness Centre

The Dawn Medical Rehab and Wellness Centre is Asia’s leading holistic addiction rehab and wellness centre for those struggling with alcohol addictiondrug addictionbehavioural addictionstraumadepressionanxiety 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 treatment methods. 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 Thailand drug rehab centres 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.

The Small Rehab Where Big Changes Happen

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 one of Thailand’s top drug rehab centres, 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 TMS therapy not found anywhere else in most rehabs in Asia.

Medical Expert Making an Assessment on a Client at The Dawn Rehab Thailand

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.

TMS Treatment Session at The Dawn Rehab Thailand

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.


We’re confident that our high treatment quality standards and your personal growth and skill-building while in treatment will prepare you for a life of sobriety.
