At Paracelsus Recovery, psychoeducation is an integral part of our comprehensive treatment model. Psychoeducation provides you with the resources and information needed to understand your mental health condition. As the name implies, the technique involves a combination of psychology and education.
Psychoeducation and recovery
One of the main goals of any treatment program is to empower people to live healthier and happier life. To achieve this goal, it is important to acquire an adequate understanding of why you are experiencing difficulties.
At Paracelsus Recovery, we will provide practical, evidence-based techniques for understanding and dealing with a mental health condition or addiction. For instance, if an individual suffers from panic disorder, our team of experts would provide them with information about their brain’s neuropathways and what occurs in the nervous system during a panic attack.
Once we understand these aspects of ourselves, we are more capable of recognizing negative thought patterns and behaviors when they arise. When we can recognize our thoughts, we have more control over how we respond to them. As the old saying goes, knowledge is power.
We include psychoeducation in both the one-on-one sessions and with the live-in therapist. Our team of experts will provide you with the practical tools and educational resources needed to change maladaptive coping mechanisms and ensure a robust long-lasting recovery.
Psychoeducation plays a vital role in all of our treatment programs in both Zurich and London.

In so doing, psychoeducation can help improve your relationships and ensure a long-lasting recovery.
Numerous studies and experts affirm that psychoeducation, when used in conjunction with other therapeutic methods, is highly beneficial. Numerous clinical trials show that psychoeducation programs enhance psychosocial outcomes and help with relapse prevention.

Psychoeducation is beneficial to both you and your partners and/or immediate family members. Where appropriate, and in agreement with each client, we can provide joint psychoeducation sessions. The aim of these sessions is to explain the treatment process and discuss how both you and your family can prepare for your return home, addressing any potential issues or challenges which may arise.
