Tailor-made Care

We offer individual support and treatment for any dependence as well as for hepatitis C – open-minded and unbiased. Professionals from different specialist fields will work with you to improve your physical and mental health.

Treating You as an Equal

In a first meeting, we will be discussing your situation and inform you of the possible ways forward. Whether you would like to consume less, want to stop consumption temporarily or permanently, or whether you don’t know if your habit is at all problematic: We are here for you. We will support you to reach your goals – in a respectful collaboration with you.
