Addiction and the Elderly

Drugs and the Over 65s

Rehab Treatment for the Over 65s

Many people over 65 find the change of lifestyle difficult to adjust to, be it retirement, family moving away, chronic pain, loss of mobility, bereavement. Some use alcohol, prescription drugs or gambling to cope.

Many older adults may not recognise the need for addiction rehab treatment, believing they are too old to change or not recognising that they have an alcohol or drug problem due to their more isolated lifestyles. This makes addiction intervention from their relatives vital.

It is never to late to get rehab treatment, stop addiction, and turn your life around. Senior patients at Castle Craig have found a new lease of life through sobriety.
