"I have a very strong belief that institutional money, institutional investments, and mental health, it doesn't work together . . . It needs to be a clinical decision where the budget side, the financial side, needs to be cut off from." - Jan Gerber, Managing Director

As one of the world’s leading experts on the unique treatment needs of ultra high net worth (UHNW) and celebrity patients and families, I’ve found Paracelsus Recovery not only delivers on its promises, but also exceeds them.

Dr. Paul Hokemeyer



Former Client

The team is very caring and kind, I never felt so understood. Several fantastic therapists worked with me during my stay. The program was very well coordinated. I feel like every imaginable detail of my health was assessed and all the big and small issues found were treated. Paracelsus is clearly another league, bespoke, personal, intensive, luxurious, comprehensive.

Referring Professional

I have been referring to Paracelsus over the past 5 years. I have found the service to be exceptional in every aspect. This is truly a family run service that provides individualised care to their clients. They have managed very complicated presentations with a sensitive, client-centred, well thought trough, evidence-based strategy. It is a privilege to refer to a team of experts whom I can trust to put the needs of my clients first!
