Welcome to Castle Craig Drug and Alcohol Rehab Sheffield, UK

Addiction is an agonising illness to experience and can be devastating to witness. An uncontrollable need to continue doing something that is harmful is a disease that is with you for life and you need help to get through it or the chances are that it won’t end well at all.

Addiction to drugs, alcohol, or both can devastate entire families, and wreck lives all over South Yorkshire. If you can’t tell the difference between a few drinks occasionally and drinking to excess you may have a problem. Many people don’t realise they have an addiction or they remain in denial about the severity of their problem. 

There are many forms of addiction and each takes a drastic toll on the individual as well as the people around them. Seeking treatment is the best way to make sure you beat addiction. Sex addiction as well as gambling can be an insidious force in a person’s life. Recreational use of alcohol is common, and the use of drugs is rising all over the UK and Sheffield is no exception. Heading down to the pub for a few drinks after work is considered normal in most cities almost every day, but recreational activities can quickly develop into a more sinister problem. 

The University Of Sheffield found that ‘pre-drinking’ is a typical feature of nights out for both young adults and older drinkers – and often involves heavy consumption. One study found that more and more people are drinking alcohol at home, and drinking more than they would if they went out. Of course, it’s cheaper to drink at home and this combined with dinner parties, house parties, or watching sports often leads to overconsumption and abuse. When drugs are thrown into the mix, the risks are only exacerbated. 

Alcohol abuse is on the rise and can have major effects on the community at large – and it’s not just booze that is the problem. Sheffield has seen a rise in heroin, crack and cocaine use, with ketamine, also reported as being used in Sheffield after a person’s son admitted taking it. However, the stalwart drugs of coke and heroin along with cannabis are considered the most widely used substances in Sheffield. Heroin and crack users are estimated to be slightly higher than the national average.

Castle Craig Is a Rehab Centre That Puts Your Recovery First

We help people in Sheffield with an addiction or substance abuse problem get the treatment they need, no matter the circumstances they find themselves in. Our team of experts has over three decades of top-level experience in treating addiction. We were the first treatment centre to bring the 12 step facilitation programme to Scotland, as far back as 1988. Our experience, guidance, and support will give you the best chance possible for a successful and long-term recovery.

At our exclusive residential facility, we ensure our patients live a healthier, happier life, free from alcohol. Castle Craig is one of, if not the premium rehab facility in the whole of the United Kingdom and Europe.

Beating addiction is hard to do on your own and that is why we make sure you have the support you need to get you on track to lasting recovery. We can also help your family support you during your healing process. A loved one’s successful journey to sobriety should be a moment of great joy and it can be shared with the whole family or a close network of trusted caring friends. We make sure you get the best treatment available in the perfect location to tackle your illness and embark on a new life, free from addiction.

Our Reputation

In December 2020 we were graded “exceptional” by our inspectors Healthcare Improvement Scotland, the first hospital to be awarded this category. Previously in October 2017, we were awarded grades of 6 “excellent” and 5 “very good” for every part of our care programs as well as quality in all areas in our latest inspection report.

We have a long history of making sure that people get effective treatment. Castle Craig is proud of our hospital management team, who take extra care and attention to make certain that our patients are put first and their overall health is our priority. Each patient’s individual needs are examined and then a tailored customised approach is used in our addiction treatment plan. This is because no two people are alike and we understand that the same program will not work for everyone.

For most people, the road that has led to addiction is usually stress, trauma or depression, or a combination of all of them. You can expect the highest level of innovative personalised attention and the benefit of different options rather than a rigidly enforced system. You are feeling safe and cared for during your personal recovery is our top priority, and you need the best quality of care to make sure that you can beat your addiction and move forward with a positive healthy lifestyle. At Castle Craig, we are proud of our world-class treatment programs for all forms of addiction, with a recent Intertek International ISO 9001 quality standard inspection describing us as ‘exemplary’.

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.
