Are You Based in Kirkcaldy and Dealing With a Drug or Alcohol Addiction?

This is becoming an increasingly widespread issue across Scotland, and there are many types of treatment available in Kirkcaldy offering support for substance abuse and alcoholism. See Treatment for a Loved-one.
Where to Get Immediate Help
Castle Craig is a highly favoured hospital and offers beautiful, comfortable accommodations for individuals seeking high-quality treatment at affordable prices.
As a family-run hospital that prioritises family care, Castle Craig displays a care-centred approach and patients will be supported every step of the way.
The hospital is located in the serene countryside, providing the calm and peace needed for recovery. Located in West Linton, Castle Craig is close to Edinburgh and just a 45-minute drive from Livingston.
Patients can see family and friends at designated visiting times if desired, but they can also immerse themselves in the peaceful countryside away from their daily lives if this is required for their recovery.

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 time and time again.
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.
Finding the Right Drug Rehab
Livingston locals looking for drug rehab may benefit from a variety of 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. It is helpful to do this with a team of experienced medical professionals.
A Better Behavioural Addiction Rehab
Patients experience addictive behaviour that has a debilitating effect on their life from addictions that may be considered ‘less severe.’ This can include, shopping, gambling, eating, relationships etc.
We target behavioural addictions and associated mental health issues including gambling and gaming addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and eating disorders.
At Castle Craig, we treat many kinds of addictions including alcohol addiction, prescription drug addiction, all drug addictions like cocaine and heroin, compulsive gambling, other behavioural addictions and dual diagnosis.
Castle Craig has a 50 acre estate near Edinburgh to provide an intensive and varied top addiction treatment programme. We are well-known for our many complementary therapies, such as:

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.
