The Dawn’s Original Treatment Methods

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.

The Dawn Addiction Rehab and Wellness Centre prides itself on offering multi-faceted treatment methods to rehabilitation and patient care. To ensure long-term positive change, we address both underlying negative behaviours (rehabilitation) and reinforce the development of positive behaviour (wellness). Our team of dedicated treatment professionals is on hand every step of the way to provide clients with the skills and tools necessary to remain drug and alcohol-free after their return home.

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 methods used are Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) and the renowned 12-step approach.

We also incorporate the use of modern technologies such as TMS and EMDR for an effective and fast-acting psychotherapy. The mindfulness aspects of our treatment model are further enhanced in our counselling sessions through breathing exercises, mindfulness assignments and reflective writing.

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.

The Renowned 12-Step Programme

Our secular 12-Step programme is a step-by-step approach using a group setting to provide people in recovery 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.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT)

Address cognitive distortions and maladaptive impaired thinking associated with the traumatic events, and allow effective cognitive restructuring.
