We have a contract with Region Stockholm, the local health authority, for multimodal rehabilitation at specialist level for severe stress-related exhaustion disorder. This means that if you send in a personal referral you should already have received help from primary or private healthcare and that we can take over treatment when this help has not been sufficient and where ill-health remains.

It is important that a doctor/general practitioner has gone through your blood test results, examined you and discarded other possible explanations for your ill-health. This is why there are questions regarding this in the form. To make it easier for you, we also request your consent to allow us to read your medical notes. 

High-cost protection applies to treatment. We are also happy to take over sick leave responsibility during the treatment period.

It is usual for assessment to take place within 2 weeks from receipt of the referral. In the case of positive feedback, it usually takes less than 2 weeks for your treatment to begin.

Our treatment programme takes place several times a week during a 4 – 5-month period which means that we can only offer rehabilitation to those who live within commuting distance to the clinic, which is close to Fridhemsplan, Stockholm.

Our goal is to give you the knowledge and tools that you need to be able to regain your health and life balance. We often need to work with both recovery promotion and building new skills in dealing with stress in everyday life.

Most of those who come to us achieve their goal of regaining health to the degree that they can break their sick leave and start working again. By actively working with your own rehabilitation, you will reach your health goals. It often takes time, more time than you think or indeed wish, but it is achievable. 

It has probably taken years of stress to result in having a stress breakdown, so it is unreasonable to expect to be fully recovered in a few short weeks. With each step in your rehabilitation, you will be getting gradually closer to your goal.At Stressmottagningen we alternate research with rehabilitation and in that way our programme is always up to date with the latest findings on what causes stress and how the body is affected by long-term stress and disturbed recovery. We continuously evaluate our treatment to ensure that what we do is of top quality.
