Transforming Lives with Compassionate Care & Lasting Recovery Solutions

Castle Craig – Addiction Treatment & Alcohol Rehab Durham

Drug, alcohol and behavioural rehab clinics offering proven and first-rate recovery programmes and therapies in Durham can be few and far between. Perhaps you or a loved one are looking for help.

Our inpatient treatment centre is based in an idyllic country location that offers patients in Broompark, Bearpark, Croxdale and the entire North East of England detoxes and proven therapies delivered by expert psychiatrists, therapists, doctors and nurses. We deal with primary addiction that often includes co-occurring mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. We believe in complete abstinence.

Located in the charming south-eastern Scottish Borders, Castle Craig near Edinburgh is an evidence-based residential rehab that has rescued thousands of lives, over 10,000 to be exact.

Patients can self-refer themselves to our recovery facility and can do so by partaking in a short, FREE addiction assessment, which will serve as the foundation of their custom therapy plan (if they choose to pursue treatment with us).   

From here, a psychiatrist will manage your addiction recovery, ascertain a diagnosis and prescribe a suitable course of treatment/therapies.

During this call, we will begin to examine the possible underlying causes of your addiction or substance abuse and distinguish any co-occurring mental health concerns.

Becoming Yourself Again… The First Step

Here at Castle Craig, we often receive patients from County Durham (DA1) in need of essential addiction treatments and therapies delivered in a safe, structured environment.

We Treat Various Addictions and Dual Diagnoses

All of our patients have their own stories to tell and their journeys to travel. However, most all share mental health challenges like trauma, anxiety and depression alongside problems with drugs and alcohol. We can help.

Travelling to Castle Craig from Durham

We offer all patients the use of our sober transport service, which will arrange for you to be taken to and from rehab with a sober companion. A sober companion is someone who will accompany you or your loved one on your flight or car journey and assist you through the difficulties of travel.

How Patients Can Recover From Addiction

We expertly combine detox and a range of therapy methods to give our patients the best chance of maintaining long-term sobriety.

This is why here at Castle Craig, we suggest 35 days (5 weeks) of treatment rather than shorter residential stays.

Patients choosing our facility can depend on and benefit from 24/7 medical monitoring and proven to-work therapies.

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.
