Addiction treatment center
for private patients and direct payers

Many of you have had a difficult and unique personal journey. Addiction often develops over time. It starts with drinking for pleasure, maybe with a nice meal, then passes on so-called “social drinking”, later becomes a habit, e.g. to “relax”, and finally ends in a dependence, when you “can’t do without it” anymore. The path may end in addiction with the resulting immense personal issues, problems with your family and problems at work. Because we know that this is the case, all employees of My Way Betty Ford Klinik have also been trained to accompany you through these crises.

An individual therapy for your addiction problem

It provides optimum conditions for recovering from the most difficult stage in your life.

Respect, empathy and understanding of your needs, large and small, are a matter of course for us. We also attach great importance to a maximum of discretion: Your alcohol withdrawal should not entail any private or professional disadvantages for you.

Discrete withdrawal in peaceful surroundings

Our addiction treatment center is beautifully located on the outskirts of Bad Brückenau, a small town in the Bavarian Rhoen Mountains. From here, it is just a few steps to the surrounding nature, and the center of the spa town is also just a few minutes by foot. Professional medical care is just as important to us as your well-being.

Our 36 single rooms are comfortably and brightly furnished. All rooms have flat-screen TV with Sky programs, wireless and, of course, an en-suite bathroom with shower. We offer our patients complimentary coffee at several coffee stations  in our building as well as a selection of fresh fruit. Our center offers many options for leisure activities, e.g. a lounge, library and PC stations. In our beautifully landscaped outdoor area with unobstructed views of the Rhoen Mountains, you can relax, play tennis, ride a bicycle or go for a walk.

The Dorint  hotel’s “Vital Spa & Garden” is also available to our patients free of charge. The hotel is just a few meters from our center.  The spa offers a “wellness landscape” of 2,800 m² with saunas, springs and indoor as well as outdoor pools .

Certified withdrawal with high quality standards

The success of our therapy is also based on our quality management which is accredited in accordance with the guidelines of the German Council on Alcohol and Addiction (Fachverband Sucht) and  certified and regularly audited according to EN ISO 9001:2008 and FVS DEGEMED 4.0. Our Quality management includes all processes in our addiction treatment center to guarantee optimum medical care. In addition, regular patient surveys ensure the necessary transparency.  Our center works continuously at optimizing our quality management: to meet our own high quality standards and those of our patients.

Success through an effective therapy mix

As part of our addiction therapy we offer a very intensive individual and group therapy (with 5 single and 5 group therapies per week). In addition, there are numerous supplementary offers such as addiction information, relapse prevention, creative therapies, relaxation and stress avoidance techniques, as well as sports and fitness offers and testimonials. The success of this highly efficient form of therapy speaks for itself.

Relapse prevention

A clinic-internal fallback prevention course and a comprehensive aftercare concept should help you to remain abstinent in the long term even after the withdrawal. Already in the clinic you are prepared for high-risk everyday situations and work together with our doctors and therapists on the psychological causes of your addiction. Alternative problem-solving strategies help to better deal with everyday problems.

Feel good and enjoy harmony

Withdrawal therapy can only succeed if addicts and their families feel well and safe when visiting our facility. Therefore, we attach great importance to a harmonious and relaxed atmosphere. The employees of our withdrawal clinic in Bavaria are characterized not only by their qualifications, but also by their friendliness, empathy, time and understanding for the small and large needs of the addicts.

The therapy forms of our withdrawal clinic
have proven themselves worldwide

At our addiction and withdrawal clinic, we use a therapy that has proven itself countless times around the world. It is a therapy concept that is primarily holistically and individually oriented through a very high number of individual therapies and supplemented by many interesting additional offers.
