Peaceful and quite

A mental health centre in a healing environment

At U-center we know that you can use every added extra in the healing process as you work on yourself. Your surroundings play an invaluable role in that process. A beautiful, quiet location does wonders for our mental state. We take this into full consideration and you can both see and feel it at on our premises in Epen near Maastricht.


Step into the welcoming comfort of U-center

Our centre near Maastricht has been designed on Feng Shui principles for a special energising, warm and welcoming stay. Our clients are our guests, who are treated with respect and hospitality. Formerly a hotel, U-center’s premises consist of a southern wing for accommodation, a central section with restaurant, lounge and opportunities for relaxation, and a northern wing for treatment and initial stay. The treatment wing includes large spaces for group sessions as well as smaller rooms for individual consultations. We have 59 pleasantly furnished private rooms with their own bathroom, and living area where consultations take place with therapists.

Our mental health centre is not only equipped with all the necessary facilities but also provides many extras. Our excellent restaurant offers a menu that changes daily. Our chef creates a varied menu incorporating fresh local produce. We can also cater to to dietary needs and allergies. The fitness room, sauna and indoor swimming pool provide some relaxation options.

You can also share experiences with other like-minded people who, just like you are equally motivated to really start working on themselves, in the lounge or on our inviting terrace. Our centre is comfortable and welcoming, in short the ideal place to start your U-turn. Below is an overview of all the comforts we offer.

A treatment and rehabilitation centre that feels like home

Located in the beautiful countryside of South Limburg, U-center provides a setting where you immediately feel at home. Our treatment centre is situated on a hillside overlooking the idyllic nature of the protected Geul valley (Geuldal). U-center is located in a former hotel which was fully renovated in 2008. It is comfortably equipped, private and peaceful so that you can fully focus on your recovery. At U-center we believe that when following an intensive seven-week residential programme, attention should be paid to quality and hospitality.
