Calda Clinic- Addiction treatments in Switzerland

Calda Clinic- psychological rehabilitation – Addiction treatments

The corporation specializes in rehabilitation programs for psychological health. The unique success-proven CALDA concept, the international medical team and the network of highly qualified experts guarantee customised precision medicine and an individual 1:1 premium care.


The specialists from the areas of psychiatry, psychotherapy, orthomolecular medicine, alternative and complementary medicine as well as from preventive-, better aging- and lifestyle medicine, work without psychotropic drugs whenever possible. Instead, methods from integrative medicine take the organism back to the desired balance.

During the entire inpatient stay, which usually takes at least 4 weeks, our team accompanies the clients empathically, discrete and professionally on their path to a happy, liberated and healthy life, in safe and luxurious, private surroundings.

Integrative medicine in the service of psychiatry leads to new promising treatment strategies for phenomena like trauma, addiction, depression etc.

Psychological diseases do not only cause mental and physical pain but are also a threat to personal freedom. In many cases, the aftereffects of traumas limit the ability to act of those affected and lead to devastating dependencies. Currently, efforts are made to no longer classify psychiatric diseases by specific categories, but to summarize them by their spectrum of symptoms. The reason for this is that treating only the tip of the iceberg, the acute symptoms respectively does not prove to be effective and does not do justice to the individual in their entirety.

The greatest challenge in state-of-the-art psychiatry lies in consequently personalising the medical treatment. In order to elaborate individual therapy programmes, new paths need to be followed.

Psychiatry has to open up to the entire established medical world. The combination of field-tested and scientifically profound methods from conventional medicine, complementary medicine and Asian medicine in many cases leads to extraordinary results within short time. One of the keys to this success is, that these methods are summarised into personalised and holistic concepts by including the most current molecular and epigenetic insights.
This insight caused us to develop the CALDA concept. The CALDA concept includes new treatment strategies to overcome phenomena like trauma, addiction, stress, aging etc. The core of the concept is the advanced and deepened diagnostic system, the interpretation of results through an interdisciplinary team of experts and the development of personal, creative treatment strategies, which revert to all proven recipes taken from integrative medicine.

The main attitude towards the common practice of psychiatry of uncritically and sometimes hastily prescribing psychotropic drugs is a critical one. Therefore, the clinic initially stops medication as far as possible to see what is underlying.

The personal service team consists of the Client Service Director, the interpreter, the butler who cares for the client around the clock, 7 days- 24 hours,  the chef who besides Haute Cuisine enjoys to fulfil wishes and cooks according to the medical instructions as well as a chauffeur and limousine that are available at any time.
