Treating the underlying problems
The clinical team at The Kusnacht Practice has a rich heritage of developing innovative methods of looking beyond surface issues in order to identify the true underlying causes of psychological disorders.
Very often the immediate problems that confront a client – such as addiction to drugs or alcohol – can actually be symptoms that are caused by a much deeper compulsion to escape from emotional stress or other factors.
We find that these forms of compulsive behaviour are usually associated with biochemical and neurochemical imbalances. These can dictate not only the manner in which a person functions, but also the way that they feel on an emotional and spiritual level.
Whilst we recognise that medication can play an important role to play in recovery, we prefer to use it as a last resort, as in many cases we consider it is only effective for the short-term relief of symptoms.
Instead, we use a wide range of scientific and clinical procedures along with measures such as The 12 Steps and complementary treatments, to bring about a spiritual shift that facilitates recovery.
Our combined treatment programmes ensure that, during their residential stay, clients are freed from their destructive patterns and with balance restored to their biochemistry, neurochemistry and self-perception.
Caring for clients and loved ones
Many people who seek treatment at The Kusnacht Practice may be experiencing emotional pain or may have suffered trauma, which can also be very distressing for family and friends.
Although not mandatory, in most cases we strongly recommend that family and close friends take part in our treatment programme. This helps each party to truly understand what is causing their family member’s disorder and their part in the healing process. Thorough preparation for a healthier and happier life after treatment and during our continuing care programme for the whole family system is an important part of lasting treatment success.
As with the clients, we offer a medical concierge facility to address any needs that may arise due to the involvement of loved ones, and all clients have the assured security of data in line with Swiss data protection standards.
We have a diverse alumni community from many different countries, including countless clients who have already visited us and are now free from the addictions and other disorders that had previously crippled their lives.
