The Twin Pillars Approach

At The Dawn, we strive to achieve the proper balance between therapy, relaxation, and well-being. With a mixture of Eastern and Western treatment options, our team of experts have created the Twin Pillar Approach. By following these principles in their individual treatment plans, our clients have the best possible chance to maintain long-term mental health recovery, sobriety and generally healthy living.

The Dawn is proud to offer multi-faceted treatment methods for mental wellness, substance misuse and patient care. To ensure success, we address the driving underlying negative behaviours, while simultaneously reinforcing the development of positive behaviour. Our team of dedicated treatment professionals help clients learn the skills necessary to get healthy and provide the tools to foster success going forward.

Our first pillar focuses on rehabilitating the mind, 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 psychotherapeutic programme is the combination of cognitive based therapies through the use of mindfulness. The mindfulness aspects are further enhanced in counselling sessions through breathing exercises, mindfulness assignments and reflective writing.

OUR PRIMARY TREATMENT METHODS 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.

Tension and Trauma-Releasing Exercise (TRE)

Through a focused regimen of stretching, exercise and vibrations, TRE therapy confronts stress build up and provides deep muscular relief.

CBT-Translated 12-Steps

Our secular 12-Step programme is a step-by-step approach using a group setting to provide a forum for social support and peer discussion.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT centres around the importance of using social interaction to identify negative thinking patterns and relying on refined coping strategies.

Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM)

Help individuals understand the biology of traumatic stress reactions and learn specific skills to get the body, mind and spirit back into balance.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

A form of psychotherapy which uses rapid eye movements in processing distressing memories and beliefs.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

An optional add-on – an FDA approved technology used in the treatment of depression and anxiety.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TWIN PILLARS APPROACH

The second pillar of The Dawn’s holistic treatment is our highly reputed wellness programme, which is designed to provide a positive sense of wellbeing and increased mental resilience through the practice of Eastern holistic techniques. This particular focus has helped to set The Dawn apart from many other treatment centres. When mastered, each of these techniques reduces an individual’s stress levels while improving focus, self-awareness and self-discipline and so promoting health and wellbeing.

Our wellness programme contains a number of holistic elements, each designed to increase overall wellbeing. They include:

  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical fitness
  • Art therapy

Why choose The Dawn  ?

Our multi-disciplinary team of licenced mental health care professionals have extensive experience in treating addiction and mental health issues.  We are the only centre in Asia to offer distinct treatment programmes for mental health and addiction, and we tailor each client’s treatment plan to cater to the individual’s needs. We also have a round-the-clock professional nursing team experienced in handling moderate cases of detox cases as well as mental health symptoms.

One of the things that we believe sets The Dawn apart from other treatment centres is our ability to look at each individual to determine their strengths and capabilities, instead of just focusing on their mental health situation or addiction. Once the elements in our treatment programme are mastered, our clients are less inclined to return to destructive behaviours and can focus on leading a healthier, happier life.
