Treatment programmes

Our residential treatment programs for substance abuse and mental health do not adopt the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Instead, we tailor-make a treatment program that suits your unique set of needs.

We use a comprehensive 360-degree approach that considers the whole person — mind, body, and soul. We address every psychological and physical element that could have a bearing on your wellbeing through a comprehensive range of medical, psychological, and physical assessments and treatments. In addition, we provide many hours of psychotherapy to treat the underlying causes of the addiction or psychological issues as well as functional medicine appointments to treat underlying causes of physical ailments. Nutritional and lifestyle counseling help to address numerous external factors that influence general and mental health. Complementary therapies including yoga, massage, and acupuncture are incorporated into every treatment program, when appropriate.

While we provide the most advanced and exclusive addiction and mental health treatment programs available, we also provide an unparalleled hospitality service.

Each program starts with a detailed medical, physical and psychological assessment and based on the results, will include varying degrees of psychiatry, biochemical restoration, psychoeducation, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling.

At the exclusive lakefront luxury penthouse in Zurich, you will have a chef or housekeeper and a limousine and driver for scheduled clinical appointments. In London, our accommodation options include 5‑star hotels, luxury apartments, or your own home. Our treatment programs include

We understand the specific obstacles that ultra-high-net-worth individuals face when it comes to seeking help. For example, we recognize that many UHNW people cannot just take a month away from work. Often, they cannot practice complete sobriety nor can they share freely in a group setting. Our programs are designed with these parameters in mind, offering complete discretion, and include many hours of psychotherapy as well as complementary therapies, functional medicine, biochemical restoration, and nutritional therapy.

Going to a rehabilitation center to treat substance abuse problems ensures that the difficult journey of recovery is conducted in a safe, caring, and supportive environment. Psychotherapy also provides education and the resources to understand the mental health condition and process underlying emotions. Complementary therapies ensure that physical wellbeing can be restored. Research shows that these attributes can decrease the likelihood of relapse and increase the chances of a long-lasting recovery. If a withdrawal procedure is required, professional help will ensure that this process is medically safe and as stress-free as possible.

Yes, a residential treatment program can treat many mental health conditions. Our team at Paracelsus Recovery is highly skilled at treating numerous mental health conditions and we tailor-make each treatment program to suit the specific needs of the individual. For example, our residential treatment program for anxiety provides specialist psychotherapy including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), extensive assessments, and optimal nutrition. CBT is a very effective technique for treating anxiety. Underlying health conditions such as thyroid problems or dietary choices often play a significant role in triggering anxiety disorders.

We provide a 5‑star setting simply because this is what our clients are used to. A limousine and chauffeur are everyday normalities for most clients and we believe that undergoing recovery in a ‘home away from home’ environment not only makes the recovery process more comfortable, but it also increases the chances of a long-lasting recovery.

The intense programs we provide are just the start of the journey. Early on in a program, we will begin to create a personalized aftercare plan. This will vary for each client and can include anything from the live-in therapist accompanying you home for an agreed period of time to a more intense aftercare program with support from other members of the team. Aftercare often includes follow-up sessions with the psychiatrist and specialist psychotherapist, family or couple therapy, if required. In London, we can provide appointments with our functional medicine doctor. You can learn more about our aftercare services here.
