Media Information

Media Enquiries

Castle Craig is frequently contacted by journalists, researchers, TV and radio producers and we are often in the media.

We are open to the media, keen to share our experience of addiction treatment and do our best to accommodate all requests. We publish short articles about addiction every week on our blog and can provide comments, quotes and articles about addiction.

We may be able to arrange interviews with our therapists, psychiatrists, directors or other staff members. Some of our therapists are in recovery from addiction themselves. In some cases we are able to arrange interviews with former patients and here you can see an example in a Scottish sunday newspaper.

In general it is not permitted to film, interview, photograph or otherwise publicise any patient in treatment. Patient confidentiality is our primary concern when collaborating with the media.

All requests need to be passed between various staff members and it is essential that you describe, in writing, in as much detail as possible what you would like from Castle Craig. We would like to know what kind of story you are planning, where you are based, what is your current understanding of addiction treatment and to see some of the work you have already published or broadcast.

To see photos and videos of Castle Craig, see this section.
