Scottish Government travel guidelines say that anyone is allowed to travel to Scotland for healthcare purposes, so regardless of the lockdown levels, Castle Craig will continue to take patients from all parts of the UK and abroad.
We know that admitting you need help is the biggest step, but reaching out for help is also the first step you can take on the road to recovery. Our dedicated admissions staff are waiting to help you or your loved one find their way into recovery from addiction. We handle all enquiries with the strictest confidentiality.
