Coping with Drinking Problems in Zurich, Geneva, Basel and the rest of Switzerland
- Are you an executive or professional working in Zurich, Geneva, Bern or Basel, and worried about your drinking problem?
- Are you the spouse or family of a Swiss person who can’t find the right treatment option in Switzerland?
- Are you a Swiss national looking for expert English-speaking addiction treatment abroad?
Expats, living in Switzerland, may experience executive burn out and stress at work and this may cause them to drink excessively or take cocaine. Due to language and cultural differences, expats may not know where to turn to get help for their alcohol problems. Expats are often faced many challenges living in a foreign country and can be isolated from their support network back at home.
A citizen of Switzerland may lack information on their drinking or drug problem and not know where to turn for rehab advice and help. Switzerland is a small country and citizens may be concerned about maintaining their anonymity, especially if they are a high profile person.

Alcohol Treatment Clinics, Switzerland
Although awareness of 12 Step rehab treatment is growing and more people are attending AA meetings, English language residential 12 Step rehab options in Switzerland are few and are often prohibitively expensive requiring top tier private health care insurance for full coverage.
The cost of healthcare in Switzerland are notoriously high, and not everyone has the right level of private healthcare insurance to cover medical and therapeutic treatment for residential alcohol and drug addiction. Instead of paying around 30,000chf per week of treatment, prospective patients might consider looking abroad, for example to the UK where costs begin at £2,000 per week for a basic service and £10,000 for a boutique service (not including hidden extras which most clinics charge).
