Treatment Center Gothenburg
At the Red Cross treatment center in Göteborg we help people who are suffering from trauma linked to war, torture, and/or severe migration journeys.
How we work
The trauma experienced from war, torture and severe migration can cause permanent injury to people, however with the correct treatment people can regain their strength and are able to get on with their lives. At our treatment center we have a professionsal team of psychologists, physiotherapists and welfare officers. The team has a wide range of capabilities within various methods of treatment. We develop a personal treatment plan for every patient. We take a holistic perspective with our patients where psychological, physical and social aspects are taken into consideration. We can also refer patients to other relevant Red Cross operations such as further investigations and reunion of families.
We also accept referrals from other care givers through personal application or from, for example, a trustee, school health servcies, employment offices and Swedish for foreigners. Please use our application form which you will find here. We can arrange for an interpreter if necessary, treatment is free of charge.

Do you meet refugees through your work?
The Swedish Red Cross disseminates information about migration trauma and injuries caused by torture. We cooperate with other organizations such as the Västra Götaland regional authority, local district councils, employment services, and social insurance authorities. We have courses for personnel who deal with refugees through their work and we offer counselling and consultations.
