Leading alcohol addiction treatment
At Paracelsus Recovery, our world-leading and exclusive alcohol addiction treatment program is grounded in compassion, care, and pragmatism. We embrace a harm-reduction framework which means whether your alcohol abuse problem requires drinking less than before or giving up alcohol completely is a decision that stays with you. We will provide the tools needed to regain control over alcohol use on a physical, psychological, social, and spiritual level.
Alcohol addiction treatment
“I’m an alcoholic, actually. Up until the point when I went into treatment, I’d never asked for help from anybody. I would rather not have known the answer than have to ask you for help. That’s why treatment was fascinating for me.” – Eric Clapton in What I’ve Learned for Esquire.

Are you an alcoholic?
Numerous studies show that our habitat and relationships impact our disposition for substance abuse. A downward spiral can occur whereby our reliance on alcohol begins to negatively affect our lives more and more, impacting our relationships and wellbeing.
For example, if we are going through a difficult period and rely more heavily on alcohol than usual, it can lead to secrecy or shame surrounding our drinking habits. Shame can create walls between our loved ones and us, therefore isolating us further. We can begin to feel misunderstood, afraid, or out of control, all of which affect how we perceive ourselves, how we interact with others, and how we engage with our habitat.
If you think you have an alcohol dependency, consider the following
- In the last few months, have you failed to meet deadlines or expectations because of your drinking?
- Do you ever need alcohol to function after a night of heavy drinking?
- Do you often find it hard to identify what you are feeling when or after drinking?
- Have you ever had a blackout while drinking?
- Do you think, or know, your relatives and friends are concerned about your drinking?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you might have an alcohol abuse problem.
Paracelsus Recovery has services available in Switzerland and London. In Zurich, our alcohol rehabilitation programs take place in our treatment center. In London, we provide alcohol rehabilitation within your home, hotel, or apartment.
Following treatment, we recommend a carefully planned relapse prevention and aftercare program. If recommended, family or couple therapy sessions can be organized to facilitate unfavorable family dynamics.
Alcohol abuse can lead to lasting changes in our brain’s biochemistry. Biochemical deficits and imbalances caused by stress, substance abuse, or unhealthy eating habits can lead to cravings, anxiety, depression, and sleep problems. All of these will debilitate our ability to fight off both physical and psychological ill-health. At Paracelsus Recovery, restoring the brain’s biochemistry is one of our top priorities when it comes to alcohol addiction treatment.
Harm reduction is a pragmatic approach to addiction that has gained across-the-board scientific support in recent years. It acknowledges that some people may not, or are not ready to, practice abstinence in their lives. Harm reduction aims to minimize damage and to improve emotional wellbeing. If you would like to learn more about harm reduction, you can read about it on our blog.
