At Castle Craig rehab clinic in Scotland we offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to our patients in detox and during our recovery programme. HBOT involves breathing 100% oxygen in a spacious, pressurised oxygen chamber.
Breathing oxygen under pressure has many benefits. It can:
Our HBOT staff are fully trained to supervise conditions in the chamber; and the type of chamber we use is so safe that it was deregulated by an Act of Parliament in 2008.
A 2016 HBOT research study, funded by the US Government National Institute of Health, and published in the journal Brain Research, found that HBOT can halve the symptoms of opiate withdrawal. The lead researcher hailed the discovery as of “profound importance” at a time when heroin use has doubled among young Americans in the last decade.
We hope that HBOT will be of interest to liver damaged patients and their doctors where standard treatment options are restricted.
The Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Trust, a non-profit organisation, provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy on-site at Castle Craig. Visit the trust's website for more detailed information and advice on HBOT.
