World Class Addiction Treatment
Just for Women
At Castle Craig, we understand that it can sometimes be difficult for a woman to talk about the emotional pain and traumatic experiences she has gone through in a group that includes men.
Women’s Group provides a safe and comfortable setting for women in recovery to open up and share stories and feelings that they may otherwise keep hidden.
There are a number of benefits to a women-only therapy group, including:
- Non-confrontational, non-judgmental, and compassionate environment for women to share their struggles, fears, and anxieties
- Sharing within a women-only group creates a safe community
- Members can develop a shared sense of empathy and community, find common issues and provide mutual support that can be transferred to a safe network once people leave rehabilitation and are back in their home environment
- All-female groups provide a more supportive setting for treating co-occurring disorders that women commonly struggle with, such as trauma or eating disorders.
- Women’s group therapy helps address specific social and emotional problems that are usually associated with substance use among women, such as:
- The negative portrayal of women in society and the media
- Stereotypes about beauty and women’s sexuality
- Social and familial pressure
- Marital problems
- Intimate partner abuse or codependency
- Other interpersonal reasons that could contribute to addiction

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.
