Castle Craig is frequently contacted by journalists, researchers, TV and radio producers and we are often in the media.
We are open to assisting the media by sharing our experiences of addiction treatment to spread the message of hope for sufferers of 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.
You can find photographs of Castle Craig, our surroundings, rooms, and depictions of our treatment programme on our photo gallery.
If you need a hi-res version of one of these photos please contact us.
Our media contact is Victoria McCann, Communications Manager at Castle Craig. She will consider your request, ask for more information and then forward to the relevant person. Victoria can be contacted by email.
If you require an urgent comment to a current news story please call our switchboard on 01721 722 763 and ask for Victoria McCann.
