CALDA Clinic obtains the European Award in Medicine to the Addiction Treatment category in Paris
Dr. Claudia Elsig
Exclusive and private yet conformable and discrete, CALDA Clinic is a private owner-operated facility specialising in rehabilitation programmes for mental health. Its offer is aimed at international, exclusive figures looking for a private rehabilitation programme tailored to them in a luxurious environment.
Absolute discretion, trust and humanity take first priority at CALDA Clinic. Thus, they offer individual counselling and state-of-the-art treatments and techniques in the psychiatric field.
The unique CALDA Concept is based in a highly qualified team that work alongside a wide network of experts, guaranteeing tailored precision medicine and individual one-to-one premium support. The CALDA technique de-emphasises reliance on psychotropic drugs, replacing them where possible with carefully managed micronutrients.
The therapeutic programme comprises six to eight hours per day, seven days per week, under the supervision of a personal lifestyle and diet coach, and includes intensive psychotherapy.
Dr.med. Claudia M. Elsig, founder and owner of the CALDA Clinic, cuts an elegant yet business-like figure, projecting the confidence and sophistication of the European cultured classes, together with the intellectual earnestness of a learned medical researcher.
The luxuriously furnished surroundings of CALDA Clinic have an exclusive view of the north-eastern ‘gold coast’ of the Lake of Zurich, so named because it bathes in the evening sun - the south-western slopes of the Pfannenstiel mountain are given over to wine growing. But the area also deserves the appellation for its low tax-rates and high property prices.
As the CALDA Clinic’s UHNW (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals) patients would expect, treatment is conducted in surroundings of comfort and luxury, with a personal service team consisting of a Client Service Director, an interpreter, a butler who cares for the client around the clock, a Haute Cuisine chef, and a chauffeur with limousine available at any time.
Also employed are ‘alternative’ therapies. Dr. Elsig says: “As proponents of integrative medicine, we extend our spectrum of measures by proven and successful ‘alternative’ techniques such as acupuncture, yoga, voice therapy, art and creativity therapy, meditation and mindfulness, even tango therapy classes and horse assisted therapy.”
Unsurprisingly, the CALDA Full Program is not inexpensive, with a four-week course of treatment typically costing from € 290,000, not including external hotel costs, medical services by third-party institutes and post-treatment programmes.
So, the setting of the CALDA Clinic – though its precise location is a closely-guarded secret for reasons of security and confidentiality – is ideal for the treatment of high-net-worth individuals who are used to the best of everything, including medical resources. “We specialize in personalities from business, politics, art, showbiz, nobility. In the banking business one speaks of UHNWI’s” she explains. “Most commonly, we treat addiction (mostly multi-substance abuse), post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, burnout, chronic stress. But eating disorders (especially bulimia) and borderline personality disorder are also part of our competence. Incidentally, in depression we have developed a special program for postpartum depression where mothers can take their babies with them. That's very important to us”, explains doctor Elsig.
CALDA Clinic represents an exclusive, high level addiction treatment centre. Company’s excellence and treatment innovation allowed them to obtain the European Award in Medicine 2021 at the Addiction Treatment category. The award recognizes CALDA Clinic as one of the most exclusive and professional addiction treatment centre throughout Europe.
Dr. Elsig received the award in a gala event at the Ritz Hotel in Paris in a perfect season for the attendees to visit the city. The hotel’s charm and elegance made it the perfect choice for the occasion.

The winners of the European Awards in Medicine are always people whose professional careers are an example of overcoming challenges to gain success. They are those who, through effort, determination, and creativity have earned esteemed recognition. CALDA Clinic is a prime example of these qualities.
