If you are one of the thousands of people across Scotland who suffer from addiction, it is likely you have tried to ‘kick the habit’ more than once.

Why Private Rehab?
Choosing the right hospital is integral to making sure you get the right support. Castle Craig is known to be one of the most affordable, high-quality treatment facilities and they offer beneficial continuing support after your in-patient stay ends.
The main disadvantage of NHS rehab is that waiting lists are often long and funds are stretched, so that treatment may not be as high quality as some private rehabs.
Often when your body has become dependent on a substance, you will experience symptoms of withdrawal when attempting to give it up.
This makes it much more difficult to resist your addiction and is one of the reasons it is so important to have a professional team of medical experts to support you with the appropriate detox and treatment.
Long-term substance abuse can have debilitating effects on your mental health, making it even more important that you get help as soon as you can.

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.
