What Happens When I Call Today?
The first step is getting to know you and understanding a bit more about your history. We’ll arrange for one of our addiction specialists from the admissions department to build a complete picture of your needs and treatment goals.
By providing a brief summary of your history and answering some key questions, you will help our clinical team determine the correct level of treatment you require. This process takes place over the phone and takes around 30 minutes to complete.
If necessary, our Consultant Psychiatrist may follow up for more information by phone or email. All information will be kept in strict confidence by our team.
To further ensure programme suitability and safe admission, our clinical team will also request the contact information of your GP or other clinicians. This will allow us to gather any and all relevant medical information and gain a more accurate understanding of your needs.

Funding Options for UK & International Patients
Castle Craig is committed to providing the highest quality addiction treatment to our patients at an affordable price. Treatment must be self-funded by the individual, covered by a health insurance policy, or funded by the NHS or CGL (Change Grow Live).
In support of veterans, active military personnel and their families, Castle Craig is proud to be a core provider for Tricare and ISOS. For patients travelling from abroad, you may be reimbursed for treatment costs by the funding authority in your home country.
Self-funded treatment offers many benefits, including immediate admission into Castle Craig. Learn more about the costs and the benefits of paying for your own treatment.
We work with many health insurance providers in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Netherlands, France and the US to ensure as many patients as possible can access treatment with us.
In some cases, the NHS may fund your treatment at Castle Craig, although the process can be lengthy and not always successful. Learn more about the steps here.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Pay For Rehab?
One concern we sometimes hear from people is how they will fund their rehab treatment. The cost of rehab varies depending on what kind of accommodation you choose. You can pay for treatment at Castle Craig privately, or through medical insurance, and some people receive funding through the NHS.
How Long Is the Rehab Programme?
Residential rehab treatment starts at four weeks and can go up to 12+ weeks. Research shows us that the longer you stay in rehab and are part of the residential therapy programme, the longer the likelihood of continued abstinence and stable recovery.
Who Will I Speak to When I Call?
When you call you will reach our Help Centre team who will give you all the information you need to help you decide whether to choose treatment at Castle Craig. Once you have decided that you would like to have a free screening assessment you will be put in touch with our admissions case managers who will guide you through the admissions process.
What Happens at the End of My Treatment?
Castle Craig thoroughly prepares patients before departure by creating a personalised continuing care plan which is formulated following discussions with the medical and therapeutic team. We offer an online continuing care programme which runs for 24 weeks after leaving treatment, in order to ensure a smooth transition back into your everyday life. Patients leaving treatment automatically join our Recovery Club where they can stay connected via our annual reunion, events, online workshops and recovery newsletters.
