Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to organize before my first visit?

Nothing. During your first consultiation we will figure out the necessary and sensible steps together.

Do you offer treatment times so that nobody in the office notices?

By agreement, discussions can also be held in the late afternoon or in the evening after office hours.

Will my employers or family know that I'm making use of your services?

We are bound by statutory confidentiality. We offer discreet and confidential support. If you wish, we can help mediate conflicts in the workplace. In some cases it makes sense to work with the employer to find a solution. This is especially true when the job is endangered by the effects of the addiction disorder.

What's the background of your organization?

The Blue Cross and the Multicultural Addiction Counselling Centre (MUSUB) offer confidential and free counselling in 11 languages to people from the cantons of Baselland and Basel-Stadt for all questions regarding alcohol, drugs, medication or behavioural addictions as well as psychosocial problems. All counsellors are specialists in addiction issues.

Is my Data safe?

All employees of the Blue Cross / MUSUB offices are bound by professional confidentiality. Information is only passed on to third parties (social insurances, authorities, employers, relatives, etc.) with your express consent. For quality assurance purposes, the counsellors can exchange confidential information about the course of treatment in intervision/supervision meetings. We keep a written record of the counselling process. You can view this file at any time upon request.

How much does the service cost?

Our counselling services are free of charge for residents / professionals in the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Baselland. For group and course offers we charge a small contribution towards expenses.

What can I do if I have questions or complaints?

If you are unclear or irritated, please contact your counsellor at the specialist unit. If you need further clarification, please contact our manager, Mrs. Mylius (mylius@mituns.ch).
