A Leading Rehab Clinic for the Treatment of Alcohol & Drug Addiction

Over 10,000 patients have passed through our doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve, long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions.

Our expert medical team of doctors, nurses and therapists is led by our Consultant Psychiatrists and Medical Director.

We help our patients recover through an intensive, personalised programme that combines medical treatment, a 12 Step programme, CBT and other psychotherapies, and complementary therapies.

Treatment Effectiveness

Castle Craig has produced several follow-up studies that prove the success of our addiction treatment programme. The outcomes showed 73% were totally abstinent from all drugs or alcohol at follow-up. 92% of respondents had improved, 8% remained the same, and none had got worse. The response rate for this study was 70%. Learn more about Treatment Effectiveness.

Highest Standards

Castle Craig is the UK’s only dedicated addiction treatment clinic with a 24/7 doctor, and hospital standards. Our recent ISO report highlighted our strong leadership, and our regulator (HIS) rated us excellent and very good in all categories at our most recent inspection. Our inspections are rigorous and equivalent to a CQC hospital inspection in England. Learn more about our Excellent Standards.

Costs & Funding

Inpatient clinic addiction treatment and detox is usually not provided or funded by the NHS. Private health insurance often fund four or more weeks of treatment. Paying privately is the preferred option in most cases. If you are travelling from another country for treatment, then the costs of treatment might be reimbursed by your funding authority in your home country. Learn more about Costs & Funding.

How to Start Treatment

Getting admitted to our addiction treatment clinic is designed to be as safe as possible, and as rapid as necessary. It is important that we gather some medical history from you and your family doctor (GP) to ensure that our treatment programme is safe and suitable. Everyone starting treatment at our rehab clinic has a primary diagnosis of addiction. Learn more about How to Start Treatment.
