Castle Craig is frequently contacted by journalists, researchers, TV and radio producers and we are often in the media. If you have a press enquiry please get in touch with our Communications Department by email or our main switchboard phone number and we will see what we can do to help you as quickly as possible.
We believe we can help the media remove the stigma around addiction. Stigma is a barrier to recovery because the shame associated with stigma prevents people from reaching out for help. We want to play a role in spreading the word about recovery.
If you need a spokesperson (director, psychiatrist, doctor, therapist) for a media story about alcohol, drugs, gambling, gaming, cryptocurrency addiction, therapy, mental health, then we can help. Our communications team will consider your request, ask for more information and then forward it to the relevant person.
We are able to comment on a variety of topics such as:
- Alcohol addiction
- Drug addiction
- Rehab treatment
- Gambling addiction
- Gaming addiction
- Opioid addiction
- Prescription drug addiction
- Porn addiction
- Sex addiction
- Social media addiction
- Eating disorders
- Therapies such as The 12 Steps, CBT, EMDR, Trauma Therapy, Grief Therapy, Equine Therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Other mental health conditions
Interviews with former patients
In some cases, we are able to arrange interviews with former patients. Patient confidentiality is our primary concern when collaborating with the media and any filming, photography or interviews need to be agreed upon with the clinical team beforehand. We cannot always guarantee that you will be able to show the identity of the subject, this is up to the individual.
All requests need to be passed between various staff members and we request 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 your story will be published and what is your current understanding of addiction treatment.
