Alcoholism is a progressive illness
Despite alcohol being accepted in many cultures, it is widely cited as significant contributor to death, disease and injury. This is due to alcohol’s nature as a psychoactive substance that can lead to physical dependency and psychological addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism states that around 7.2% of adults have an alcohol use disorder. This can be due to a combination of causes, which include physical, psychological, genetic or lifestyle factors.
We adopt an approach that is discreet, non-judgemental 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 we adopt four major pillars of treatment: psychotherapy, Biomolecular Restoration, complementary treatments, and spiritual counselling in the form of The 12 Steps. Founded on it, our qualified experts provide care and support on an individual basis in discreet and comfortable surroundings.
