Symptoms and effects of alcoholism

Alcoholism is often mistakenly considered to affect individuals who are weak or cannot function. In fact, it is a chronic disease that can affect people of any age, race, social status, or income level. For many people, the effect of drinking is harmless, but for some of us, it can lead to dangerous consequences. Drinking alcohol is associated with a risk of developing health problems such as liver cirrhosis, some cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and mental and behavioral disorders such as depression and anxiety. If left untreated, full-blown alcoholism is a progressive illness that worsens over time and can cause enormous harm, both to the sufferer and to their loved ones.

The most common symptoms of alcoholism

  1. Memory impairment
  2. Extreme mood swings
  3. Making excuses for drinking such as to relax, deal with stress or feel normal
  4. Feeling hungover when not drinking
  5. Choosing to drink over other responsibilities and obligations
  6. Engaging in risky behaviours, such as drunk driving
  7. Being in denial about the extent of the alcohol abuse problem
  8. Becoming distressed at the prospect of not having access to alcohol

Alcoholism treatment

At our luxury alcohol rehab, we adopt an approach that is discreet, non-judgmental, and confidential. Our priority is to identify and treat the root causes of alcohol addiction. We look beyond the symptoms of alcoholism and examine the function of drinking in a client’s life. We then treat the entire person: mind, body, and spirit. At The Kusnacht Practice, Luxury Alcohol Rehab, we adopt four major pillars of treatment: psychotherapyBiomolecular Restoration, complementary therapies, and spiritual counseling in the form of The 12 Steps. Using The 12 Steps, our qualified experts provide care and support individually in discreet and comfortable surroundings. 


The treatment investment at our Luxury alcohol treatment center starts at CHF 97,000 per week. This covers all programme costs excluding: transportation to/from the client’s home to Zurich; medical issues unrelated to the treatment programme; Continuing Care. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies) and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice luxury alcohol treatment center services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured may be reimbursed by their health insurance for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.

Client testimonial

  • Matthew, aged 50

    “I was a leader in my industry but I was in denial about the fact my life was unmanageable due to alcohol. Initially, I just wanted to detox and lose weight, but thankfully The Kusnacht Practice identified the underlying issues that were triggering my addiction. It made me put recovery first and now my life is back on track, both professionally and within my family.”
