Nestled above Montreux in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, Clinic Les Alpes is a world class facility treating emotional, mental, and behavioural dysfunction. This state-of-the-art residential treatment centre is fully licensed by the Swiss Department of Health and our pioneering programme is grounded in Switzerland’s exacting standards of clinical excellence. We take a holistic approach to mental health, integrating: 

• a cutting-edge medical unit for detoxification, scoping and ongoing psychiatric assessment, and an emphasis on functional medicine where doctors assess, analyse, and strategize nutritional and lifestyle approaches; 

• a fully-serviced medical spa where experts focus on somatic processes and experiential approaches;

• a rigorously developed programme of talking and creative therapies

This robust approach to clinical care takes full advantage of the intrinsic therapeutic potential of its built and natural context; a beautiful facility on the ridge of a mountain overlooking Montreux and Lake Geneva to one side, and the Alps to the other. We work with a small number of patients at any given time so that the clinical team has the capacity to develop bespoke approaches and relational depth with patients, while the patient community is contained within a mindful, intentional programme and can harness the therapeutic power of group approaches.
