Twin Pillars Treatment Approach

The Twin Pillars approach to treatment focuses on equipping clients with the tools needed to cease negative behaviours and regain self-sufficiency.
Rehabilitation combines Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

The Dawn incorporates cutting edge technologies such as TMS and EMDR for effective and fast-acting psychotherapy. A mindfulness model is further enhanced in counselling sessions through breathing exercises, reflective writing and mindfulness assignments.

Aftercare and Ongoing Support

Treatment at the Dawn is designed to help clients develop a strong foundation for long-term recovery. Relapse prevention planning is utilized to assist clients in gaining a better understanding of their warning signs and triggers, allowing them to intervene early and avoid a relapse.

The Dawn provides every client with an individualized relapse prevention plan to be used as a guidebook for self-care and to help ensure every chance of maintaining successful long-term recovery well into the future. Upon completion of treatment, clients are required to join The Dawn’s online aftercare groups which are offered for free for a minimum of 10 weeks. If they wish to continue they are welcome to do so.

The Dawn also offers a Step-down Programme that facilitates the transition of clients back into daily life following the completion of treatment. In the Step Down Programme clients live on site and participate in some therapy but have the freedom to come and go as they choose. It allows clients to reintegrate with the world at their own pace with the confidence that they have professional support available where something could go wrong.

Relapse Warranty Policy

The Dawn offers a unique Relapse Warranty Policy that allows clients who complete a 12-week substance addiction treatment program to receive one month of free treatment if they relapse within one year.
