This Centre was first established in Long Ke Wan, Saigon, in April 1968, providing a boarding faith-driven treatment and rehabilitation services to male drug abusers. With approval from the Hong Kong Government in 1976, the Centre was moved to Fo Tau Fan Chau, Saigon, and has continued to operate under the name “Dawn Island Gospel Addiction Treatment Centre” to this day. In July 2006, a South-Asian Ethnic Zone was officially set up on the Island, offering addiction treatment to South-Asian male students. With this, there are now three student groups on the island, namely, the Adult Group (aged 23 and above), the Youth Group (aged 22 and below), and the South-Asian Ethnic Group (for non-Chinese).
