Privé Swiss is a luxury residential treatment center for upscale clientele. The facility’s website describes its typical client as a seasoned professional between the ages of 40 and 65 who has “achieved financial success” but has lost themselves in depression, exhaustion, or addiction. While residential treatment for those struggling with substance abuse is among the facility’s offerings, Privé Swiss also offers a host of other services, including a “Psychological/Emotional Treatment Program,” and a “1-Week Superstar Intensive” for high-achieving individuals short on time, as well as a Legacy Young Adult program.

According to its website, Privé Swiss maintains three confidential facilities along both the East (Connecticut) and West (Southern California) Coast.


Privé Swiss’s differentiating factor is its personalized attention; according to its website, all clients receive one-on-one attention, and the facility admits only three clients at a time. Its main offering, the Clarity Program, typically lasts two to four weeks, though length of stay varies depending on needs.

Programs are highly structured and guided by coaches for nearly every element. For example, clients meet with a psychotherapist three times per week, along with coaches for fitness, stress management, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), life coaching, relapse prevention, and medication management (if needed). Other components include expressive therapy, yoga/meditation, weekly massages, acupuncture, spirituality counseling, daily off-site outing opportunities (i.e. shopping, visiting the local village), journaling, and nutritional counseling. There is also a couples program available.


According to the Privé Swiss’s website, most of its licensed staff members have over 20 years of experience. The wide-ranging, multidisciplinary team consists of a nurse practitioner, therapist, “transformative coach,” organizational and clinical psychologists, physicians, a registered nurse (trained in relaxation), a mindfulness specialist and meditation trainers, life coaches, a licensed acupuncturist, a yoga instructor, an art therapist, and several licensed counselors.


The facility’s website boasts luxury accommodations and notes that “Each retreat is offered to only three clients at a time.” Clients stay in private rooms or suites furnished with fine linens and maintained by a housekeeping staff. They have access to cable TV and internet and eat meals prepared by a gourmet chef. Other amenities include yoga, Pilates, massages, and acupuncture.
