Clínica Galatea is specialized in treating ill medical professionals through residential rehabilitation. The Caring Program for Sick Physicians (PAIMM), has over 20 years of experience and has cared for over 4,000 health professionals.
Clínica Galatea is a point of reference nationally and internationally for the care it provides to ill health professionals. It offers confidential, multidisciplinary, all-around treatment in a setting that promotes the full rehabilitation of the user. We have a multidisciplinary therapeutic team with ample experience in treating addictions and mental illnesses that has addressed over 4,000 cases.
We do not only treat addiction through pharmacological detoxification; one of the keys to our intervention is intensive psychological treatment (with both individual interviews and group sessions) in order to help patients live without substances and to work psychologically on the causes that lead to substance use.
We also consider the physical welfare of our patients, with an exhaustive evaluation by an internist doctor and a range of activities aimed at physical welfare (workshops on healthy habits, gymnastics, physical therapy, etc.).
The program for healthcare professionals in Catalonia is one of the services offered by the Catalan Health Service, as long as the professional association in question has an agreement with Fundació Galatea. Our clinic also treats patients from the Spanish PAIME network.
Health professionals who do not want to access the Clinic through their professional Association can also receive care. They will receive the same specialized treatment, with the same measures to protect their anonymity.
Whenever possible, we incorporate the patient’s affective environment (generally, their birth family or their household) into their rehabilitation process. When authorized by the patient, we contact those closest to them in order to fully address the problem and incorporate those around them into their therapy.
Located in Barcelona, it is the center of detoxification and treatment of additions and mental disorders specialized in doctors and health professionals.
