Switzerland: Natural Beauty, Privacy and Discretion in Medical Care

We believe our location nestled in Switzerland’s Alpine region is the perfect place for high-end addiction treatment for residents of New York City. Switzerland itself is a country known for valuing the privacy, discretion and highest standards of medical care our patients desire and more importantly, need, for the most complete healing and restorative experience.

Our Breathtaking Facility

Clinic Les Alpes’ stunning facility is just one part of what makes us a luxury rehab for NYC residents seeking integrated healing of mind, body and spirit. Our spacious historic Alpine chateau’s tasteful interiors and state-of-the-art medical spa merge with the surrounding natural beauty through wraparound porches, an infinity pool and 360-degree views overlooking Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.

Conditions We Treat

Clinic Les Alpes is fully licensed by the Swiss Department of Health, and our counsellors and medical team are dedicated to compassionately, expertly and holistically treating a multitude of behavioural and substance addictions as well as other mental health issues.

As a luxury rehab for NYC residents, many patients come to us experiencing varying levels of burnout and exhaustion from their busy, over-stimulating lives and environment. We provide patients with the support and systems needed to create and maintain more balanced and joyful lives.

Emotional well-being is essential to everyone’s health and quality of life. Our counsellors create customized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique history to create the foundational support needed for a true sense of well-being.

Anxiety and depression affect many, whether or not they struggle with other conditions such as substance abuse. Our licensed and experienced staff draw from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), art therapy, horse-assisted therapy and other holistic practices to treat each patient according to their specific needs.

Behavioural addiction can be just as disruptive to a person’s life and as difficult to overcome as substance abuse. Clinic Les Alpes’ staff provides judgment-free treatment of gambling, porn, sex, food, shopping dependency, as well as other behavioural addictions.

Clinic Les Alpes provides on-site detoxification, daily one-on-one counselling, holistic treatments and much more to help patients overcome addiction to substances including alcohol, opiates, prescription drugs, stimulants and more.

Most often, substance or behavioural addictions don’t affect an individual’s system or life in isolation. Our licensed staff creates tailored treatments to address every behavioural or mental health disorder affecting a patient.

Our Approach & Treatment Programs

Clinic Les Alpes provides the highest levels of compassionate, tailored and comprehensive care available in a luxury rehab for residents in New York City. Treatment extends beyond the length of a patient’s stay through our extensive aftercare Program and works to integrate wellness into each patient’s external environment, relationships, body, mind and spirit.

We are fully medically licensed by the Swiss Department of Health, and our integrative medical practice begins with full physical assessments upon a patient’s arrival. We work to improve a patient’s diet, ease tension and adjust any medications as necessary throughout a patient’s stay.

We integrate the power of nature in our recovery therapies through regular outdoor activities and horse-assisted therapies, as well as spa treatments such as acupuncture, reflexology and more.

Education and ongoing practice are essential to lasting recovery; therefore, we provide patients with custom workbooks, family support and an extensive aftercare Program for when they return home.

First, we connect prospective patients with our Admissions Department staff to discuss our Program options and answer any initial questions the patient may have.

After this, our staff and the prospective patient work together to decide the best plan and timing for admission.

The clinic ensures all patients receive the most effective, personalised care we can provide by requiring each patient to agree to a minimum of four weeks. However, the length of time is tailored to each patient’s wishes and needs.

We recognize the crucial role family plays in a patient’s recovery process, as well as the fact that family members are often also deeply affected by a loved one’s addictions. We offer family therapy sessions as well as a 3-day Program for family members.
