Why Residential Treatment for Depression is the Most Effective Option
More than 2 in 3 people suffering with depression do not seek treatment leading to other serious social and physical consequences including:
- Chronic pain to memory and heart problems
- Relationship breakdowns
- Loss of productivity and career
- and in worst cases scenarios, loss of life. Over 60% of people who commit suicide have depression
When struggling with a severe mental illness, outpatient therapy cannot offer the level of medical care and psychiatric support provided through residential treatment.
Inpatient depression treatment is therefore best for those whose depression has become more severe - as it typically features a longer length of stay, giving people the time and space they need to recover. A residential facility also allows a person to get away from the pressures of their daily life -- as stress, worry and lack of downtime are known to worsen depression.
Most Common Barriers to Effective Treatment
Waitlists for qualified specialists can range from 3 months to a year or more.
Effective residential treatment can cost up to $60,000 per month in Western countries.
Appropriate specialists for your condition may not be available in your location.
Many fear knowledge about their depression condition could risk career and social status.

Why Clients Succeed at The Dawn
For those requiring medication-assisted treatment, our psychiatrists collaborate with the client’s focal therapist to ensure they receive the appropriate prescription. We also have a 24-hour professional nursing team, experienced in all psychiatric conditions, always on site to care for clients.
Apart from medical support and evidenced-based psychotherapy, our clients participate in Eastern wellness practices such as meditation and yoga, which have been scientifically-proven to reduce stress levels and focus the mind - not only improving depression treatment outcomes but equipping our clients for life with the tools to manage their real-life pressures.
The Dawn is the only non-hospital inpatient depression facility in Asia to offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS therapy. TMS is a cutting-edge, FDA approved, non-invasive technology that improves symptoms of depression, even in those resistant to medication -- and when combined with psychotherapy enhances depression treatment outcomes greatly.

"I suffered for more than 10 years because I thought treatment was beyond my means. In two months The Dawn has given me back my life, in fact a better version of it. And at half the price of what I would have paid in the UK."

The Dawn is internationally accredited by the American Accreditation Commission International (AACI), a widely recognized body overseeing clinical excellence and provision of health care, and accredited nationally by the Thai Ministry of Public Health.
Whether you’re seeking treatment for anxiety, depression or another psychiatric condition, we will tailor your treatment plan specifically to your needs. The length of your treatment will depend on the complexity of your diagnosis as well as your responsiveness to treatment, a process that can take anywhere from four weeks to six months. Ideally, we ask clients to try to clear their schedule for approximately two months in order to see clear results.
Our clients typically participate in two individual counselling sessions and over 20 hours of group therapy per week. Your counsellor will continually monitor your progress during these sessions. If they find that you are struggling, you’ll get additional one-on-one time to further explore your issues and needs, and strengthen your recovery.
Yes, group therapy sessions and group activities are a major component of treatment at The Dawn, and play a pivotal role in the effectiveness of our mental health programmes. In fact, most of our clients attribute a big part of their recovery to the ability to identify with the group and the support they received from the community.
Yes, we offer weekly online group counselling sessions. We believe that aftercare is vital in helping you work through any issues as you settle back into your daily routine at home. Aftercare is also a key factor in preventing the recurrence of symptoms and to support your continued recovery.
The Dawn has a 24-hour onsite professional nursing team who has vast experience in handling medications as well as patients with psychological issues. Under the supervision of our psychiatrist, who handles all prescription medication, the team carefully monitors and assists clients as required.
This will depend on your initial assessment by our medical team. If medication is determined to be necessary for your condition, then it will be prescribed by our psychiatrist.
Yes, visitors are welcome if the visit is of therapeutic value and the visitor is pre-approved by your focal counsellor. Visits are typically encouraged during the weekend and last for a maximum of two hours so as not to disrupt your treatment schedule.
Yes, but with a few conditions so as to ensure your continued recovery. During the first four weeks in treatment, you’ll enjoy a weekly group outing with members of our staff. Any other trip off-site during this critical month in treatment must be for medical reasons, and include a referral from our in-house medical team and a staff escort.
After a minimum of four weeks in treatment, you will be allowed to leave the centre unescorted for a few hours, as long as the outing has been pre-approved by your focal counsellor.
Though a loved one is welcome to drop you off at the Centre and to come for periodic visits (as long as the visit is pre-approved by your focal counsellor), only clients are able to live on site. This is to help you focus your time and energy solely on yourself and your recovery. However, our staff is happy to recommend hotels for your loved one if they would like to stay nearby as you concentrate on your healing and wellness.
Yes, we allow phone, computer and internet access – unless restricted by our Clinical team for therapeutic purposes.
We have a simple, yet robust, intake procedure. Within 12 hours of receiving your initial enquiry, we will contact you to gather more information about the client’s personal details and history, as well as provide an overview of The Dawn and answer any questions you may have. After this initial contact, one of our Clinical staff members will follow up with the client to do a preliminary assessment to gage if we can treat your condition effectively.
We require a US$2,000 deposit at the time of booking. After we receive the booking and deposit, we can help our clients with travel arrangements, such as visa support, flight bookings, and airport transfers.
Yes, we accept insurance from leading healthcare providers worldwide. Please consult with your provider about their coverage to ensure that all your questions are answered prior to treatment.
We take the confidentiality of every one of our clients very seriously. Our staff strictly adheres to international standards of medical confidentiality, and no information about you will ever be released without your written permission.
