Mental health conditions — residential rehabilitation
At Paracelsus Recovery, our luxury mental health treatment programmes are based on pragmatism and empathy. We will help you overcome your mental health challenges with tailored treatment in beautiful surroundings.
Our mental health treatment programmes include
Intensive psychiatry and psychotherapy
Our expert psychiatrists and psychotherapists will help you address the emotional issues, traumas and negative thoughts that are related to your mental health condition. Psychoeducation will provide you with more knowledge about your mental health condition by exploring the triggers of the illness and how to manage or eliminate the symptoms. If necessary, and with your agreement, the psychiatrist will also prescribe medication.
The live-in therapist stays in the same chosen residence as you and is available for emotional support and therapeutic assistance whenever you need it most, around the clock.
When a person suffers from a mental health condition, their diet and lifestyle often take a toll leading to a lack of essential nutrients that the mind needs to function optimally. Biochemical restoration will restore these nutritional deficits and repair any damage done to the brain and body on a cellular level. Healthy biochemistry is integral to a long-lasting recovery because it improves cognitive skills, physical vitality and emotional stability.
Physical health therapies
We provide numerous complementary therapies based on individuals’ needs and recommendations from our medical team to ensure that your treatment is as stress-free as possible. These can include yoga to strengthen the mind-body connection, massage to encourage relaxation, acupuncture to provide relief from chronic pain and reflexology to promote the body’s natural healing process.
We provide numerous hours of lifestyle and nutrition counselling to help you examine how certain lifestyle choices have influenced your mental health. Our specialists will help you implement a healthier lifestyle.
Some of the mental health conditions that we treat at Paracelsus Recovery
Mental health conditions in ultra-high-net-worth individuals
Mental health conditions are often widespread amongst ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) individuals due to the stress that is found in their environments. A private survey we conducted among UHNW families found that over 70% reported an addiction or mental health issue in their immediate family.
The majority of these issues were left untreated because of the stigma surrounding mental health and UHNW individuals. For example, if a C‑Suite executive suffers from a mental health condition and word got out about their difficulties, it could detrimentally impact their company’s stock price. Similarly, an individual living in the public eye will experience numerous negative stereotypes attached to the idea of using ‘rehab stints’ for publicity.
360-Degree Treatment Approach — The most extensive and comprehensive treatment worldwide
Recovery is one of the most challenging journeys people will ever undertake and the idea that they are doing it for ‘attention’ can have a negative impact on their self-esteem.
At Paracelsus Recovery, we take all of these unique obstacles into account. We only treat one client at a time to ensure we provide the most confidential treatment available. We also provide bespoke accommodation and 5‑star hospitality to ensure that Paracelsus Recovery is a ‘home away from the home’ for the client.
When a person is suffering from mental illness, life can feel isolating. If they are not aware they have an illness, they may believe that this is ‘who they are.’ As a result, they can internalise the misguided belief that they are weak which could not be further from the truth. Mental illness is just like physical ill-health in that it can affect anyone, regardless of their background, income or success.
We recognise that people suffering from mental health problems are in a great deal of pain. This pain can be physical, psychological or neurobiological. We are well equipped to help you process this pain, address your symptoms and restore your wellbeing.
Psychotherapy in conjunction with biochemical restoration and sometimes medication is the most effective mental health treatment.
At Paracelsus Recovery, we believe that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ treatment when it comes to mental health conditions. Our treatment ideology is multidisciplinary and comprehensive, incorporating psychotherapy, biochemical restoration, psychiatric support and complementary therapies to manage stress levels and restore physical and mental health.
Underlying mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or posttraumatic stress disorder are some of the leading causes of addiction issues. At Paracelsus Recovery, we address any co-occurring mental health conditions with the aim of treating the whole person – mind, body and soul. We will never just treat the symptoms, as we believe it is equally important to address the root causes that lead to the symptoms in the first place.
