Detox from alcohol or drugs is the first stage of residential rehab treatment where patients rid their system of poisonous toxins. Our full-time Consultant Psychiatrist prescribes individualised detoxification plans, tailored to the patient’s needs, and approved by the patient.
We have over 30 years’ experience in detoxification from drugs and alcohol and we ensure that detox is as safe and comfortable as possible.
Our experienced nursing staff are sensitive to the needs of patients during this difficult time and we provide 24/7 round-the-clock care, support and encouragement. Our detox is referred to as 'Tier 4', meaning that all medical care takes place at Castle Craig.
We closely monitor all patients throughout detox until they are stable; easing withdrawal symptoms and reviewing a patient’s care several times a day. A specialist doctor is available exclusively to Castle Craig, onsite, 24 hours a day, seven days a week in case of emergency.
Detoxification is more supportive when there is a shared room environment and in general patients share a bedroom during detoxification. After detox patients move to a bedroom which is either single or shared. Most rooms are en-suite, a couple have adjoining bathroom facilities.
Detoxification alone is not enough and will not curb compulsion to drink or use drugs. A combination of individual psychotherapy, group therapy, specialist therapies, educational lectures and complementary therapies (all monitored by our experienced and dedicated medical team) will see a patient through to a full recovery.

I'd never been in contact with horses before and I did have some fear of being around them at first but what I learned about myself from even the first session with them was absolutely incredible. I walked away stunned by the experience.
