The Most Expensive Rehab in the World | High Society

by CHZ



Paracelsus in Switzerland is the most expensive rehab in the world, serving a clientele of royalty, politicians, oligarchs, business tycoons and A-list celebrities. Forget the £20,000-a-month celebrities spend at The Priory in Surrey, or the £41,700 they shell out for 45 days at the Meadows in Arizona – a five-week residential rehab here costs a whopping £315,000 – about ten times the average UK annual salary.

Staying at a lakeside villa in Zurich with 24/7 limousine transportation, a personal chef, a butler and a concierge, clients have access to a five-star hotel spa and a live-in therapist (who sleeps in the spare room). Activities include tennis, yoga, martial arts, weightlifting, massage and more.

We sent writer and model Sydney Lima there to see if it could help her kick her partying lifestyle. But while she was there, she uncovered a strange, unexpected world.

In the next report from High Society, we investigate how deadly synthetic drugs made by Russian darknet cartels are spreading through Tbilisi’s world-famous nightlife scene.

Damn as a licensed therapist I would never ever live in with a client, no boundaries whatsoever. Totally unethical.

I understand that this establishment is for a privileged class of people still I would like to see a completely out of mind meth head tweaker in this setting who's got a fully blown paranoia sores all over his body and whose only thought is just another hit of a crystal meth .

I cannot take this serious when I think of an addict going into a rehabilitation center, you go in at your lowest, withdrawing and sick. This person doesn’t seem bothered by anything. She seems pretty fine. Having no self control because “everyone else” is normalizing it is not addition. She doesn’t seem to be physically and mentally or really even emotionally addicted.

I’d legit kill someone if I was in active withdraw and they A. Tried getting my shivering ass into an ice room and B. Had some pompous guy asking me how I feel every five minutes and telling me I can call him daddy.

There seems to be less "rules" here
You are allowed on the internet pretty soon after arrival
Rich people get healing on their own terms…we have to follow rules AND pay $$$$

Cravings for alcohol? I’ve never heard of that? Wtf so what’s an alcoholic?

If you need to spend $370,000/month for rehab, I doubt you’re getting sober lol

Second comment: I know the classical comment at 11:15 is Mozart, from the Requiem, so it's possible the first classical piece is Mozart, not Beethoven. Just spitballing here.

Reply
Cait Turner November 21, 2020 - 2:40 am

what is the classical piece that starts around 1:48 and ends at 2:08 Is it Beethoven?

all these methods remind me of homoeopathy (an esotheric approach on medicine invented in switzerland with no scientific backing, but scarily famous in switzerland, germany and austria…). and hell yeah do they rip you off

Because peak-pampering the addicted is the way to get them off their wonderland….. Wow, this is by far the biggest nonsense scam out there I have ever seen. …bonus: VICE reporter is a cocain sniffer, great…what else please….daddy listens to you midnight while nobody is watching, right after you just fed with something you are allegedly allergic to, but seemingly nothing happens, yet your allergy test is done after…..I don't know how on earth this could be a bigger mess then already is, but hey there is an other 10 minutes to watch…boy….this world..

So much bullshit, and scientifically unproven stuff. it's just a scam if it's not proven scientifically, in essence is just like a health centre
, it's only overexpensive, and full of useless crap testing with "random technology".
Also the unknown guy she talks with it's probably just an actor, prepared for the role based on the informations they took from her.

If the guy who said he could live there for the rest of his life did so, say it was 1 million every 2 months for 40 years, he would spend $24,000,000. That is crazy
