Expert Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Over 10,000 patients have passed through our rehab centre’s doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions.
Our medical team of doctors, nurses and therapists are led by our Consultant Psychiatrists and Medical Director. We help our patients recover through an intensive, personalised addiction programme that combines medical treatment and a range of addiction therapies that include the 12 Step programme, CBT and other psychotherapies, complementary therapies, oxygen therapy, and continuing care.
Castle Craig is owned and run by the McCann family who have pioneered addiction rehab in the UK for over 40 years. We understand that addiction is not a choice, but an illness and that recovery is possible. Our mission is driven by compassion for those suffering from addiction and respect for them as individuals who need help. We are dedicated to providing the most effective addiction treatment and therapy possible.
Who Needs Help?
Whether you need help for yourself, a loved one, or a work colleague, it’s important to understand that addiction is an illness not a lifestyle choice. Addiction does not discriminate based on gender, ethnicity or religion, impacting individuals and family members from all walks of life. Learn more about the different ways we can help today.
