We provide all patients with personalised two-year aftercare plans that will benefit them after they return to their homes and communities. We consider aftercare essential to reduce the risk of relapse and we provide continuing support for our patients after they complete treatment.
We hold aftercare group therapy sessions at four locations across Scotland. All clients are encouraged to attend one or more of these weekly aftercare group sessions on an ongoing basis for at least two years after completing treatment at Castle Craig. Castle Craig Netherlands organises its own aftercare programme in Holland. These are free of charge.
Addiction is a life-long condition and we ensure that when our patients leave here they’re equipped with the right tools and are referred to the right people. We refer the patient back to their GP, referral agency, community addiction team, or any other medical practitioners involved in their care. We arrange for a contact within the local AA / NA fellowship, usually a former patient of Castle Craig, to act as a ‘sponsor’ and help provide an introduction to these essential support networks.
We offer patients the opportunity to return to Castle Craig at any time if they need advice or help. This includes weekly aftercare group therapy sessions, and personal therapy can be arranged. Our annual reunions are a highlight event for both staff and friends of Castle Craig and we organise weekend recovery retreats in the form of our Renewal Workshops.
