The First Step to Getting Help

Castle Craig offers free, confidential addiction screenings with experienced admission specialists. The screening explores:

  • Your alcohol drinking levels
  • Any other substances you are misusing,
  • Any addictive behavioural patterns such as gambling and gaming,
  • Any underlying mental health conditions that may also be affecting you,
  • Any other health issues you have received medical treatment for,
  • Whether you will benefit from a residential addiction treatment programme.

How Assessments Help With Treatment

During our first conversation, our series of questions help us to identify what will serve as the basis for your individualised treatment plan.

Our Consultant Psychiatrist or a doctor reviews the assessment and recommends the best alcohol rehab and detox treatment for your needs.

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.
