The Good

  • Exclusivity
  • Luxury accommodations
  • Holistic approach to treatment


The Kusnacht Practice only treats one patient at a time, and because of this, it may rightly be the most exclusive alcohol treatment center in the world. Patients receive eight hours of one-on-one treatment each day, and with the exception of additional leisure and cultural excursions, all treatment occurs at the patient’s selected 6-star residence overlooking Lake Zurich.

This approach to treatment provides privacy, anonymity, and allows for intensive treatment that is truly individualized for the patient.

Luxury Accommodations

In addition to its location in the Swiss Alps, The Kusnacht Practice also provides 6-star residences to its patients. Patients select the residence they see fit, choosing from a selection of lakeside penthouses, mountain chalets, or the Dolder Grand Hotel & Spa. All residences feature breathtaking views, offer privacy, and reside in a relaxing environment.

Each luxury residence is outfitted with a personal butler and a gourmet chef suited for the convenience of the patient and his or her needs. Patients also receive maid service and a personal driver to provide transportation to and from the airport, nearby excursions, and the local hospital where initial tests are run before treatment begins.

Holistic Approach to Treatment

At The Kusnacht Practice, Alcoholism and drug addiction is treated as a chronic disease. The facility prioritizes identifying the underlying causes of the addiction and treating those causes instead of a symptomatic approach to treatment.

The Bad

  • Isolation
  • Reserved for Celebrities and the Wealthy


A stay at The Kusnacht Practice can be a much needed retreat for many patients. With privacy and exclusivity also comes isolation, which can have a detrimental effect on some patients who thrive in more social or group-oriented treatment protocols. The level of isolation at The Kusnacht Practice can be diminished with a dedicated butler, gourmet chef, driver, and intensive daily one-on-one treatment, but it is not a one-size fits all treatment regimen.

Reserved for Celebrities and the Wealthy

Being an exclusive, luxury alcohol abuse treatment facility, The Kusnacht Practice is extremely expensive. They treat only one patient at a time, and of those patients their ideal clientele are celebrities and c-level employees or family members of major corporations. With this reservation for celebrities and wealthy comes an unpredictable queue for entry to the facility, a queue which may not be suitable for those patients who have more immediate needs. Stays are anywhere six to twelve weeks, and The Kusnacht Practice can be booked out years at a time.

The Kusnacht Practice to does provide treatment cost transparency, listing their weekly rate at CHF 72,500–100,000/week or up to $93,000/week USD.

The Bottom Line

For wealthy patients who thrive in a one-on-one environment of exclusivity and luxury, The Kusnacht Practice may be the very best option for alcohol abuse treatment. With luxurious surroundings, beautiful views, and truly dedicated one-on-one therapy, the Swiss Alps seem like a great place to get away and address the underlying conditions affecting alcohol abuse. The Kusnacht Practice, however, is not for everyone, so unless you have a sizable amount of discretionary income, steer clear.
