Here at Castle Craig, we often receive patients from County Durham (DA1) in need of essential addiction treatments and therapies delivered in a safe, structured environment.
Our inpatient treatment centre is based in an idyllic country location that offers patients in Broompark, Bearpark, Croxdale and the entire North East of England detoxes and proven therapies delivered by expert psychiatrists, therapists, doctors and nurses. We deal with primary addiction that often includes co-occurring mental health issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders. We believe in complete abstinence.
Becoming yourself again… The first step
Located in the charming south-eastern Scottish Borders, Castle Craig near Edinburgh is an evidence-based residential rehab that has rescued thousands of lives, over 10,000 to be exact.
Patients can self-refer themselves to our recovery facility and can do so by partaking in a short, FREE addiction assessment, which will serve as the foundation of their custom therapy plan (if they choose to pursue treatment with us).
From here, a psychiatrist will manage your addiction recovery, ascertain a diagnosis and prescribe a suitable course of treatment/therapies.
During this call, we will begin to examine the possible underlying causes of your addiction or substance abuse and distinguish any co-occurring mental health concerns.
