The Twin Pillars Approach

At The Dawn, we strive to achieve the proper balance between relaxation, work, rehabilitation and wellness. With a mixture of Eastern and Western treatment options, our team of experts have created the Twin Pillar Approach. By following these principles, 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, rehabilitation 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 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. The mindfulness aspects are further enhanced in counselling sessions through breathing exercises, mindfulness assignments and reflective writing.


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 buildup and provides deep muscular relief.

The Renowned 12-Step Programme

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

Medical Hypnosis

Hypnosis helps open the brain to suggestion, lower background noise and enhances the effectiveness of other treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy.

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)

A non-invasive procedure that stimulates nerve cells in the brain to improve mood and relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression.


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. Instead of focusing purely on the trauma or addiction, we focus on the individual and his or her strengths and capabilities. This particular focus has helped to set The Dawn apart from many other treatment centres. When mastered, each of these elements reduces the need for individuals to resort to addictive substances or behaviours that are detrimental to their health and wellbeing.

Our wellness programme contains a number of holistic elements, each designed to increase  overall wellbeing. These well-rounded approaches help clients become happier, healthier and more productive members of society. Key components of our wellness programme include:

  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Spa and massage therapy
  • Wholesome diet
  • Pilates
  • Physical exercise
  • Reiki
  • Art therapy
