Leading Alcohol and Drug Treatment in the Netherlands

World Class Addiction Treatment

We give patients the therapeutic tools they need to stay abstinent and live fulfilled lives.

Since 2008 Castle Craig has had a sister network of outpatient addiction clinics in The Netherlands. The clinics in Holland are located in The Hague, Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

Since 2008, Castle Craig Nederlands has provided outpatient care and referrals to Castle Craig and Smarmore Castle rehab clinics for people suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction and dual diagnosis. Castle Craig Nederlands have a network of clinics around Holland and the team includes a Treatment Director, Consultant Psychiatrists and Therapists.

Patients begin their journey to recovery with a Castle Craig Nederlands outpatient clinic. They receive a referral to inpatient treatment at Castle Craig, Scotland or Smarmore Castle, Ireland; or they are referred for outpatient treatment in one of the Dutch clinics. After inpatient treatment they will go back to the care of Castle Craig Nederlands outpatient clinics for aftercare.

Treatment at Castle Craig for Dutch residents is fully or partly reimbursed through Dutch private medical insurance. Those who do not have private Dutch insurance can pay privately for treatment.

Expats Living in Holland

The Netherlands is known for its lenient approach to drug policy and its large drug market. However, it is important to note that although the use of cannabis is decriminalised, it is still a controlled substance, and the distribution of drugs is forbidden. There are a number of drug and alcohol rehab clinics in the country, but most only offer services in Dutch. As a result, many English speaking people living in the Netherlands often travel to the UK for English-speaking rehab.

Castle Craig is a popular option because of the connection through Castle Craig Nederlands outpatient clinics that provide pre-admission assessment and therapy as well as the continuing care you will receive when you return to Holland from abroad. Castle Craig Hospital is also proud to be recognised by major international insurers including BUPA, AXA Health, WPA, ISOS, Tricare, Henner, Healix and more.

Admissions Process in Holland

The Castle Craig Nederlands Admissions Team deals with admissions/’aanmelding’, liaise with your insurer, and can give you further information about our treatment programme or about addictions in general.

Our Consultant Psychiatrist in the Netherlands conducts a pre-admission assessment and this is sent to Castle Craig for approval by our Consultant Psychiatrist. A date is set for your admission to Castle Craig and flights and transport are booked.

The Admissions Team will send you an admission information pack with details of what to expect when you arrive at Castle Craig or Smarmore Castle.

On arrival, you will be collected from Edinburgh airport or Dublin airport by one of our drivers and brought safely to the clinic.

Continuing Care After Rehab

Reintegration or ‘re├»ntegratie’ is the process of integrating someone back into society after a period of intensive rehab treatment. It is important to take the time and space necessary to explore how to shape your life going forward after you have been away for residential addiction treatment. Castle Craig Nederlands has programmes in place to identify your needs, qualities, and abilities. This support can be an important part of your recovery.

How Can Castle Craig Help?

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.
