Advantages and disadvantages

Advantages and disadvantages of alcohol rehab

For us at Castle Craig, there are rarely any disadvantages to our specialised therapies and alcohol addiction programmes, which our expert psychiatrists and therapists deliver.

Whilst this might be a bold statement to make, we see the success our dedicated alcohol programmes deliver on a daily basis and are confident in the high standard of care we deliver to our patients.

To experience our exceptional quality of care for yourself, and to learn more about our success rates, just ask.

However, with alcohol addiction present across the country and very few successful treatment facilities available or accessible, we understand that for some patients, who might have to travel further afield that this can pose certain disadvantages.

Advantages of inpatient alcohol rehab

Our inpatient alcohol rehab offers the highest level of care available and is the option most recommended by addiction treatment professionals and psychiatrists.

Residential settings provide round-the-clock medical care and clinical support, as well as a full schedule of therapeutic activities.

Care is delivered via a highly personalised, systematic plan, while complimentary wellness therapies make the treatment process more comfortable.

This intensive option is designed to remove you from your using environment and create space to focus entirely on your recovery.

Castle Craig’s alcohol rehab unique benefits:

  • 4% of those who attended treatment at Castle Craig were totally abstinent from all drugs or alcohol at follow-up (after about 1 year). Read more about our success rates here.
  • We have a fitness trainer and an entire fitness centre
  • Nestled into 50-acres of rolling hills and natural beauty
  • Laundry service / free daily newspapers and water delivered to rooms
  • Wellness and holistic therapies like acupuncture and massages
  • Choice of bedrooms and suites

Disadvantages of an alcohol rehab

Residential rehab is more resource-intensive than other options and requires you to take time off work or school, as well as spend time away from your family.

It also requires travel to the centre, which may or may not be located near you. 

Here at Castle Craig, we are aware that travelling away from your home, job, family and local area might be a little scary. But travelling away for rehab actually has so many benefits too.

However, to make you feel more comfortable during your stay, we have family and visitor accommodation on our grounds and can integrate the family into joint therapy sessions.

Meet the new you

With anything in the world, there will be pros and cons, however, in our medical opinion, attending rehab can often outweigh any of the common disadvantages associated with treatment.

Getting better from this illness is not going to be easy and it’s going to require dedication and commitment.
