Castle Craig’s Team of Trained Specialists
We have a qualified team of therapists accredited with either COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy Scotland) Scotland’s professional body for counselling and psychotherapy or BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
The 12 Step Model, provides the foundational framework for how we help patients deal with alcohol dependency.
This is one of the world’s most reputable addiction treatment approaches for drug and alcohol addiction and we have seen it work for patients repeatedly.
However, we understand everyone’s experience with addiction is unique. Your programme will be tailored specifically to fit your needs, including detoxification measures, length of treatment, what therapy you will attend, fitness programmes, and your type of accommodation.
“We are fully medically managed – Medical Director, Consultant Psychiatrists and a team of doctors and nurses.”
Different drug dependencies require different treatment methods.
If you have been using a harmful substance for a while, it is likely your body will have become dependent on it and you will need to go through a detoxification period.
Though many people fear this stage, with the right medical care it can be managed to be as comfortable as possible. It is best to go through detoxification in private rehab so that you can receive personal medical care if required.
Sometimes patients experience addictive behaviour that has a debilitating effect on their life from addictions that are considered ‘less severe.’ This can include, shopping, gambling, eating, relationships etc.
We understand that these vices can have a debilitating impact regardless of perceived stigmas. We offer treatment for Gambling addiction Gaming addiction and many other issues. These issues are addressed through therapy that can help you understand some of the underlying feelings that may be triggering unhealthy habits that are hard to kick.
Put Your Recovery in Safe Hands
Castle Craig is a family-run hospital and we are here to support patients for the long term – well beyond their time at our wonderful castle.
Our location is an additional benefit for patients, as they often find the peace and serenity in nature that provides the headspace needed to truly heal.
Many of our patients have highly demanding jobs and family lives, so taking time for themselves in our 50 acres of private woodland often offers inspiration to recover that they may not have access to in their normal lives.
Now is the time to put yourself first, and truly heal for good.

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.
