Depression treatment & help

— depression affects 320 million people

We offer the best residential treatment in completely private and luxurious surroundings at Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Our internationally renowned team provides intensive one-on-one care, identifying and treating the underlying causes of the depression.

Treatment for depression:

restoring clients to a normal life

We adopt an approach that is discreet, non-judgemental and confidential. Our goal is to identify and treat the root causes of depression (not just the symptoms) in order to restore you to a healthier life. This can involve adopting a healthy approach to coping mechanisms and self-perception. We aim to do this by treating the entire person: mind, body and spirit.

We prefer not to use prescribed medications unless absolutely necessary. When we do, our clinical team monitors the effects carefully and strives to ensure that their usage is short-term. We are often able to use diet, nutritional supplements and amino acid treatments instead of medication.

Depression can often be eliminated by addressing the underlying issues and by correcting any biochemical and neurochemical imbalances. However, successful treatment is not possible while these imbalances remain. Biomolecular Restoration is the missing link in most treatment programmes and we therefore make it our priority in cases of depression. This is combined with psychotherapy to treat any underlying psychological causes of depression. These procedures can be particularly effective alongside complementary treatments.

Clients are treated individually, never in groups. Our clinical team (comprising doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counsellors and nutritionists) and our complementary team (including yoga instructors, acupuncturists, masseurs and personal trainers) can therefore fully concentrate on your specific requirements.

Upon arrival, clients will be admitted to one of our partner hospitals for a full medical examination.  You will then move to one of our luxury private residences with Swiss 5-star service, where a live-in counsellor will be available to you on a 24/7 basis.

Treatment costs

We provide the very best care and comfort. Our fees are typically CHF 80,000 – CHF 120,000 per week, depending on the requirements of the individual. These 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 services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered by the clients directly. 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.

Individualised treatment

Everything that we do at The Kusnacht Practice is highly tailored to your unique treatment plan and to your personal needs. The individualised care allows for the flexibility to strive for the best possible results, always in complete privacy and maximum comfort.
