A lot of media coverage

Earlier this month BBC Alba aired a documentary on the lives of working horses in Scotland.  Dileas – Working Horses. In the third episode of the series BBC Alba visited Castle Craig Hospital and spoke with one of our senior therapists – Aureol Gillan who revealed how our equine-assisted therapy works and how the horses help many addicts in the process of recovery. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01m0nkw 

Last week Castle Craig also received significant cover on the front page of the Times and in the Daily Record. The headline in the Times stated, “Addicts on methadone risk brain damage,” and the headline in the Daily Record was, “Unethical and dangerous…Methadone users risk brain damage and heart problems.” http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/health/methadone-users-risk-brain-damage-1278295 

The BBC and other news stories also covered news of our latest inspection in February. The BBC reported “Castle Craig private hospital receives positive report” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-16853431
