Burnout and Exhaustion

For the general public the term “Burnout” is a euphemism for what in psychiatry is usually called “major depression” or “clinical depression”. A burnout can be something less severe, simply exhaustion, for which the individual only needs more rest or a vacation to recuperate; however, it can also be a much more serious affair, with significant and long-term consequences for the individual’s health and that needs to be treated and followed up very closely.

Mental and Emotional Wellbeing

At Clinic Les Alpes we work with our patients to identify mental health problems and develop plans for reducing their impact.


We think that addiction is most helpfully understood as an all-consuming relationship with a substance or behavior. It affects millions of people from all social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
