Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab Serving London

Castle Craig has been one of the UK’s leading providers of addiction treatment since 1988. In addition to our residential rehabilitation clinics, we also have an outpatient service in London which provides pre-care and aftercare for people attending rehab.

Castle Craig is a national centre of excellence, and provides residential addiction treatment to people all across the UK, including London and the South East of England.  Our London patients often report that our tranquil rural location away from the chaos and temptation of the city is crucial to their early recovery.

Castle Craig is easy to reach from the South East of England with many of our patients beginning their journey to treatment with one of the regular flights or trains from London to Edinburgh.

Benefits of Outpatient Rehab

Once you have decided to enter rehab, you must think about whether you wish to attend a residential or outpatient facility. This decision will also depend on your personal circumstances, such as several different factors, including the severity of your addiction, and your other personal and professional considerations.  

One of the major benefits of attending a therapy service before committing to rehab is that it is more affordable and can be tailored to fit each patient’s schedule and commitments. While residential care involves a person staying at the facility for the duration of their treatment, therapy clinics offer the chance to come and go for individual therapy and group therapy sessions, and to return home afterwards.  

What Happens During Outpatient Rehab? 

Outpatient rehab is also referred to as Dayhab, or IOP (intensive outpatient programme).  Experiences will differ depending on the approach, and the quality of the facility chosen, but the structure of the programmes is often much lighter and more flexible than in a residential rehab.  There is also the opportunity to undertake much of the therapy programme online.  Most outpatient clinics provide the following:

  • One-to-one therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Access to recreational activities
  • Medical referral
  • Access to mutual-aid, including 12-step meetings.

Once you have been through an initial assessment and your treatment plan has been finalised, you will be expected to attend sessions on the specific days outlined. 

How Much Does Rehab Cost in London?

The cost of engaging in an intensive addiction treatment programme is more expensive than engaging in therapy, where prices can start from £100 per session with an experienced practitioner. Outpatient programmes generally start from around £2,000 and in some cases private health insurance might contribute to the cost.  For people who need more affordable treatment options, the mutual-aid resources and fellowships such as AA and NA offer a cost-effective solutions.  But for people who have previously tried, but not succeeded in achieving sobriety in AA, professional treatment is likely to prove helpful.  To receive a recommendatoni on the appropriate level of care for you or your loved one, we recommend you call CATCH Recovery directly to find out more about your options.  

Services in London

Castle Craig and CATCH Recovery provide London-based patients with the chance to seamlessly continue their post-rehab treatment back in their home environment. Continuing care is considered an important part of recovery, and increases the chances of patients maintaining long-term sobriety.

Aftercare Networks

Upon discharge from Castle Craig Hospital, patients attend continuing care services which involves private one-to-one therapy sessions and recovery coaching as well as a group aftercare meeting, during this important time period there are also regular check-ins from staff at Castle Craig. As well as this we encourage our clients to find a sponsor in the AA or NA or other similar group to mentor them through the early stages of sobriety and to connect up with at meetings.

Addiction Psychiatrists in London

Castle Craig has a network of experienced addiction psychiatrists in London. Psychiatrists can provide ongoing psychiatric care and medication management during aftercare, as well as being available on an outpatient basis including at the start of the treatment process.

An addiction psychiatrist most commonly provides services such as:

  • Diagnosis of addiction and other disorders
  • Medical assessment
  • Referral to inpatient treatment.

Psychotherapy in London

Our outpatient clinic in London has a team of highly experienced psychotherapists who deliver our therapy services.

Psychotherapy has a valuable role to play in continuing care after residential addiction treatment, and in dealing with family and relationship issues that are often part of the problems facing someone with a diagnosis of addiction.


An intervention describes a concerted attempt by healthcare professionals and family members to encourage an individual with an addiction problem to engage in treatment.  Interventions can be carried out by a psychiatrist, a mental health nurse, or by a trained intervention specialist.

If you are worried about a friend or a loved one who is not accepting the need to seek treatment, then our team in  London can refer you to a professional who can help to manage an intervention.

Recovery & Sober Coaching in London

Addiction is a chronic illness that is not ‘cured’ once detox or inpatient treatment is completed. Rather, this time spent in treatment can put you in a good position to continue your recovery and lead a happy and fulfilling life without the need for drugs or alcohol.

Recovery and sober coaches (or sober companions) are individuals who have at least several years of steady recovery behind them and can offer readily accessible support to someone who is coming out of treatment and making their way in early recovery.

It is important to note that recovery coaches are not healthcare professionals associated with the actual treatment of addiction. They support your recovery, help prevent relapse, build community support and work on life goals.

Free Addiction Resources London

Self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous are free and widely available in London. Alcoholics Anonymous is a friendly and welcoming group of men and women who meet to support each other in their recovery from addiction.  They share their experiences, challenges, strength, and hope with each other for mutual support and understanding. The only requirement for attending is a desire to stop drinking, but it is possible to attend an open meeting even if you don’t consider yourself to have an alcohol problem.

Similar groups exist for people with drug addictions, such as Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous London.  

Al-Anon is a free recovery resource for anyone affected by a family member or loved one’s drinking or drug use.


Can I Visit a Loved One in Castle Craig if I Live in London?

Yes, families and loved ones are encouraged to assist their loved ones into treatment, and to visit at agreed times during treatment.  We can assist family with travel and other logistics.

Can I Get Funding for Drug/Alcohol Rehab?

We understand that not everyone can afford private rehab. In certain cases, you may be eligible to apply for funding from your local authority. However, it’s important to note that this process is not always suitable for people who want an urgent admission, as the funding approval process can be lengthy and is not guaranteed.

Can I Go Through Rehab as an Outpatient?

Yes, our London service offers outpatient care for people who do not require round-the-clock care or those who are unable to attend residential rehab.

How Do I Know if I Need Rehab?

If you feel that rehab might be right for you, then this can be the best indicator for what will likely work for you.  A common misconception is that you have to hit ‘rock bottom’ before you are ready  to seek help. In fact, the earlier you begin addiction treatment, the greater your chances of maintaining sobriety.

People enter rehab at different stages of their addiction, either because they themselves are concerned about their drug/alcohol use and behaviour, or because their loved ones have expressed concern about their wellbeing.
