The Dawn offers recovery not only for individuals struggling with addiction but for those who need to restore their mental health as well. The anxiety retreat programme at The Dawn in Thailand provides an opportunity for individuals with anxiety problems to regain control of their lives and reconnect with their spiritual side in the beautiful, picturesque city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.
It is normal for people to feel anxious at certain points in their lives, especially when they are faced with a situation that is challenging or stressful, such as a first date, exam or a job interview. In fact, symptoms of anxiety — racing heartbeat, adrenaline rush, narrowed vision or muscle tension — are remnants of evolutionary fight or flight responses that allowed our ancestors to stay safe when confronted with survival situations. However, if these reactions start to overwhelm a person to the point that it interferes with their daily life, then they could be battling an anxiety disorder. In anxiety disorders, the brain and body overreact to everyday activities — leaving the house, driving a car, interacting with others — by interpreting them with the same intensity as life-or-death situations.
People who deal with anxiety disorders cannot control their panic responses and often find that it makes navigating their life incredibly difficult. They may experience debilitating anxiety attacks without warning, which can interfere with normal activities like working, attending social events or running errands in public. The Dawn rehab in Thailand offers specialised programming for people who experience these difficulties and are looking for a solution to regain control of their lives. Our relaxing, rejuvenating anxiety retreat programme allows our clients to take a step back from the stressors of everyday life and begin to create new, sustainable habits and methods for dealing with their anxiety.
We also offer a dual diagnosis program for those who struggle with anxiety and a co-occurring substance use disorder. Anxiety often leads to self-medication with drugs or alcohol; what’s more, many common prescription anxiety medications can become addicting when taken for too long or taken at higher doses than recommended. The Dawn rehab can help break the cycle of addiction and anxiety and allow mental, physical and spiritual healing that will last beyond our clients’ time in our programme.

The most common approaches to treating anxiety disorders are medication and psychotherapy. Medicating for anxiety, however, comes with a variety of risks as many anxiety drugs come with a host of side effects and are easily abused. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are incredibly responsive to psychotherapy, and usually in a short period of time. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in particular is an excellent tool for treating anxiety. CBT focuses on the thoughts and behaviours that are associated with the disorder and helps people to recognise and challenge their negative thought patterns and irrational views that contribute to their anxiety. It helps people “reprogram” themselves to respond differently to situations that may have once triggered their anxiety, using the power of cognition to help them feel more in control of their life and their body.
Professional anxiety retreat programming may be suitable if the anxiety interferes with a person’s daily life or causes extreme distress. Programmes like the one we offer at The Dawn are an intensive way for those who struggle with anxiety to take time away from the distractions of daily life and fully focus on overcoming their disorder. Our tranquil location, world-class services and expert staff ensure that your experience here will help you heal and give you the tools you need to manage your anxiety when you leave.

Anxiety is the way that our bodies naturally respond to danger. It is comparable to an instinctive alarm that is triggered when a person is faced with a challenging situation, under pressure or threatened. Some anxiety, from time to time, is not necessarily a bad thing because anxiety can actually help you to stay focused and alert, encourage action and stimulate problem-solving abilities. Anxiety is no longer productive, and becomes a problem, when it is overwhelming or constant, and gets in the way of one’s activities and relationships.
Anxiety symptoms can vary from person to person. One person could start to panic at the idea of a party, while another could experience panic attacks that occur all of a sudden. Even though there are different types of anxiety, all of them share the same main symptom, which is persistent or severe worry or fear in situations where other people would not feel threatened. Other general symptoms of anxiety include:
