Every Company Needs an Alcohol and Drug Policy

It is important for every company to have an alcohol and drugs policy in place so that problems are dealt with effectively and consistently. Also referred to as a ‘substance abuse policy’, it can create an environment that encourages individuals to admit they have a problem and seek help. This is already an important step towards treatment and recovery.

What’s a Functioning Addict?

Ed Zuiderwijk, the Team Leader at Castle Craig’s outpatient clinic in the Netherlands explains that work is an important part of people’s lives and often one of the last places where addiction can be spotted. People try to hide and maintain appearances at work, even while a lot of other things in their life go wrong: socially, financially, and in the family.

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 4 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.
