Making that first step in seeking help can be very difficult, it can be hard to know how to start
We understand this, which is why we offer free telephone addiction assessments with experienced addiction experts and case managers. If we cannot help, we can tell you where could.
Castle Craig is a private rehab. Assessments are available to all who are struggling with addiction or with addiction and other mental health issues. Treatment at Castle Craig is not free.

*Please note that this phone call is for you and is completely free – whilst this is an introduction and will not provide you with an official diagnosis, if you pursue treatment at Castle Craig, this will serve as the initial foundation for a psychiatrist to review and manage your case. By taking this call, there is absolutely no obligation to undergo treatment at Castle Craig following this assessment.
What is an addiction assessment?
An addiction assessment is where our addiction team will sensitively assess your condition prior to any treatment.
Examples of what we will try and ascertain include the extent of your addiction, any previous rehab stays and your withdrawal experiences.
Throughout the assessment, it will be important for you to be as informative and open as you can be about the true extent of your addiction, as well as any physical and psychological symptoms you might be facing.
From this assessment, our medical caregivers will look to identify risk, which includes triggers, signs and symptoms of addiction and the risk at present. This will give an initial idea of how Castle Craig can help manage and minimise these risks.
What to expect during the assessment:
The call can be organised over the telephone to support those who are interested in accessing hospital addiction treatment services.
- A 30-minute or less confidential phone conversion with an addiction admissions specialist at Castle Craig, who will refer and consult with a psychiatrist on your unique case
- We will talk in detail about your current situation and assess any mental health needs and areas we can provide critical support
- Help you figure out if treatment is needed and what options will be available to you
- To determine and identify whether detox will be necessary
- Financial guidance and advice about funding
- External referrals to local clinicians if appropriate
If you miss our call, please be safe in knowing that our team will not leave a message, or make it aware of where we are calling from to anyone other than you.
Our promise to you
The call is confidential and you can trust us to handle your information sensitively – we will never contact you without prior acknowledgement.
