Les Alpes- Mental Rehabilitation Clinic in Switzerland
Les Alpes Clinic- psychological mental rehabilitation – Addiction treatments
Nested in the Swiss alps, near the town of Montreux, you’ll find a completely renovated building housing a clinic for those seeking to free themselves from the prison of addiction. The scenario seems almost fairy-like, with 360 degrees view of alpine meadows, forests, snow-capped mountains and lake Geneva. If the time to start a change is now, the ideal place to do is certainly here.
Clinic Les Alpes is the result of 10 years of dedication and investment. The starting point was the conception of a luxurious facility, lodging the most state of the art examination rooms, detoxification suites and medical spa. A great deal of effort was put into the choice of materials and decorations, all with a single thing in mind: patients safety and comfort.
Licensed by the Swiss Department of Health, this inpatient facility specializes in providing personalised treatment plans for various types of addictions. These include addiction to substances, such as alcohol and drugs, and behavioural addictions, such as those related to gambling, social media, or pornography. Co-existing mental health problems, like burnout, depression, food disorders are also treated at this clinic. A multilingual and experienced team of doctors, counsellors, nurses and therapists are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure patients receive the best possible care.
Clinic Les Alpes provides a service where a member of the therapeutic team can collect the patients from home and accompany them to the facility. Upon arrival, the medical team will proceed to a complete medical health check, a micro-nutritional profiling and a psychiatric assessment. With all elements in hands, the medical and therapeutic teams will create, together with the patient, a tailormade treatment plan that suits the patients’ particular and unique needs.
Mind and body balance are extremely important in the process of recovery. Daily counselling are complemented with psychotherapy sessions and complementary therapies as, for instance, medical hypnosis, stress management, 12 steps, art therapy. It’s in the 1’000 square meters medical and wellness spa, comprising four treatment rooms, male and female sauna, steam bath and relaxation suites, indoor/outdoor infinity pool, that integrative medicine takes place with sessions of acupuncture, reflexology, pilates, yoga, among others.
Good nutrition also aids wellbeing. After a consultation with a dietician, a tailormade programme of supplementation of vitamins, minerals, aminoacids and micronutrients is elaborated.
Learning new healthy habits and regain life balance is the goal. Recovery is a journey that requires practice and time. Having this in mind, the medical and therapeutic team draw up a personalised and detailed aftercare programme that may include weekly counselling sessions, trimestral consultations with the head psychiatrist, the establishment of a network that will support the patient outside of the clinic, and the possibility to organise booster stays to reinforce the key learnings of recovery.
“The journey of recovery has a different path for every sufferer,’ says the founder, Patrick Wilson, ‘but the liberty and peace of freeing oneself from addiction to sub¬stances or behaviours is one of the greatest personal achievements an individual can attain.”
