At Castle Craig, we believe that alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, is a primary, chronic brain disease. As a result, patients must undergo an abstinence-based programme in order to achieve long-lasting recovery. The specialized residential treatment programme for alcoholism that has been developed here at Castle Craig will help patients suffering from alcohol addiction find get the personlised care they need to combat the disease.

Personalised Alcohol Detox Programme at Castle Craig
Detoxification—the treatment of any withdrawal syndrome associated with the abrupt or gradual cessation of the drug or drugs that the person has been taking—is the first step on the road to recovery, and Castle Craig’s 30+ years of experience are what help make our success rates so high. Our personalised alcohol rehab detoxification programme is supervised by an experienced team who work together to make detox as safe and comfortable as possible. We understand that this is an extremely difficult time and provide 24/7 round-the-clock care, support, and encouragement.
We closely monitor all patients throughout detox until they are stable; easing withdrawal symptoms and reviewing a patient’s care several times a day. A specialist doctor is available exclusively to Castle Craig, onsite, 24 hours a day, seven days a week in case of emergency.
Detoxification is more supportive when there is a shared room environment and in general patients share a bedroom during detoxification although there is provision for single and single en-suite accommodation. After detox patients move to a bedroom which is either single or shared.
We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Because each patient comes to us with unique life experiences and circumstances surrounding their addiction, the personal treatment needs of each individual are taken into account when we form their alcohol treatment plan.
Our world-class psychiatrists, doctors, nurses and therapists meet regularly to discuss the patient’s ongoing condition and update their treatment plan according to their progress in treatment. Because our treatment is residential and located on one site, patients can join in the daily routine of individual counselling and group therapy as soon as their physical condition permits.
Castle Craig’s Treatment Model for Alcohol Addiction
Because of our belief that alcohol addiction is a primary, chronic brain disease and that patients must undergo an abstinence-based programme in order to achieve long-lasting recovery, we utilize the 12 Steps, along with other treatment methods.
- Medical assessments
- 12 Step facilitation
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Family therapy
- Complementary therapies that have been proven effective for patients with substance misuse disorders.
The recovery process is assisted by a combination of exercise and a healthy diet, in peaceful, private surroundings. We assign a personal focal therapist who works with patients throughout their stay, conducts one-on-one therapy sessions and shapes their aftercare plan alongside the Head Nurse and Consultant Psychiatrist.
Get Help for Alcohol Addiction Now
If you or a loved one struggles with alcohol addiction, getting help as soon as possible is critical. Trying to detox from alcohol on your own is dangerous and doesn’t address the underlying issues of your addiction. A structured rehab programme that includes detox, consultant psychiatrist care, medical treatment and psychotherapy provides a good chance for lasting recovery.
