Information for employers

An effective treatment for your employee

Integrated treatment for people with psychological conditions or problems with addiction.

Our approach

Intensive and effective treatment

Mental health centre

Some people have difficulty overcoming depression, addiction, anxiety or trauma. As an employer, together with your company doctor, you may have tried everything to help your employee without reaching the desired or a lasting effect. Most treatment programmes in the Netherlands focus on a single condition, while there are often multiple, interrelated problems. U-center specializes in integrated and simultaneous treatment of comorbid mental disorders, with substantial and lasting results for a successful return to work.

Unique approach

Focused on reintegration

We treat the person, not just the condition. We look at your employee’s situation as a whole, and what is causing the psychological problems. At U-center, clients receive personalized treatment, that takes into account work, lifestyle, personality and relationships with family members. We do this through a range of interventions that are given individually, in groups and with the assistance of system therapy. Reintegration is often possible during treatment, and we would like to involve you as an employer regarding your employee's agreement to treatment and follow-up.

Five reasons to choose U-center






Reason 1: Intensive treatment in a comfortable environment

In an intensive residential programme lasting seven weeks, we help your employee to realize the U-turn – the point at which your employee makes lasting change in his mental health condition. The comfortable setting of our clinics in Epen contributes to the turn-around.


Reason 2: Expert in co-occurring mental health disorders

Usually several problems occur together and are related. They can also provoke or reinforce one another. U-center specialises in treating two or more co-occurring mental health conditions together, through a combination of therapies.


Reason 3: Highly effective treatment

Research which monitors how our clients progress in the year after they leave U-center, shows that our treatment for mental health disorders is extremely effective. Around 75% of our clients maintain significant recovery, or show further improvement in this year, results which are above the national average.


Reason 4: Excellent customer satisfaction rating

After completing a programme of treatment with us, we invite our clients to rate us. A high proportion - 86% of former U-center clients - recommend us. Former clients also award us an average satisfaction rating of 8.2.


Reason 5: Scientifically based

U-center uses the most up-to-date, scientifically proven methods to improve mental health. To achieve this, we work closely together with the University of Maastricht.


Impressive treatment results and satisfied clients

Treatment at U-center is a special experience. This is evident from the high satisfaction ratings given by our (former) clients. No less than 84% of former clients recommend us, something we are very proud of, but which makes us no less ambitious. We are constantly developing and improving the treatment we provide.
