Why Consider a Private Rehab?

Although there are few options available, it can often be difficult to secure NHS funding for rehab treatment.

For those who are financially comfortable, or have health insurance that can contribute to their treatment costs, private rehab is by far the best way to secure reliable, trustworthy treatment.

Castle Craig

Castle Craig is a private residential rehab near Edinburgh. The centre provides treatment for alcohol, drug and gambling addictions.

Castle Craig uses the 12-step treatment approach in combination with other proven treatment options and boasts a patient satisfaction rate of 98%.

The clinic is located in the beautiful, serene Scottish countryside and provides the perfect location for individuals to focus on their selves and find some calm away from their usual daily stresses.

Alcohol Rehab

There is a large body of evidence that proves alcoholism is a brain illness that is most adequately treated with a combination of talking therapies. At Castle Craig, patients will undergo an abstinence-based programme and will have an on-hand team of medical professionals to support them during this period of withdrawal.

Drug Rehab

Drug dependencies can affect your mental health, your physical health, your work life and your relationships and it is important to get help before things get too bad. At Castle Craig, we have a specialist detox unit where patients can complete their detox in a medically supervised environment.

Behavioural Addictions Rehab

People with behavioural addictions often experience feelings of a loss of control over unhealthy habits.

Engaging in certain activities can become compulsive and obsessive and can often have damaging consequences.

Other behaviours such as eating, shopping, browsing the internet, pornography and sex can act as secondary addictions and become compulsive eventually impacting your life negatively.

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.
