Castle Craig’s Team of Trained Specialists
We have a qualified team of therapists accredited with either COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy Scotland) Scotland’s professional body for counselling and psychotherapy or BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
The 12 Step Model, provides the foundational framework for how we help patients deal with alcohol dependency.
This is one of the most world’s most reputable addiction treatment approaches for drug and alcohol addiction and we have seen it work for patients time and time again.
However, we understand everyone’s experience with addiction is unique and your programme will be specifically tailored to fit your needs including detoxification measures, length of treatment, what therapy you will attend, fitness programmes and your type of accommodation.
Different drug dependencies require different treatment methods.
If you have been using a harmful substance for a while, it is likely your body will have become dependent on it and you will need to go through a detoxification period.
Though many people fear this stage, with the right medical care it can be managed to be as comfortable as possible. It is best to go through detoxification in private rehab so that you can receive personal medical care if required.
Sometimes patients experience addictive behaviour that has a debilitating effect on their life from addictions that are considered ‘less severe.’ This can include, shopping, gambling, eating, relationships etc.
We understand that these vices can have a debilitating impact regardless of perceived stigmas. We offer treatment for Gambling addiction and Gaming addiction and many other issues. These issues are addressed through therapy that can help you understand some of the underlying feelings that may be triggering unhealthy habits that are hard to kick.
Put Your Recovery in Safe Hands
Castle Craig is a family-run hospital and we are here to support patients for the long term – well beyond their time at our wonderful castle.
Our location is an additional benefit for patients, as they often find the peace and serenity in nature that provides the headspace needed to truly heal.
Many of our patients have high demanding jobs and family lives, so taking time for themselves in our 50 acres of private woodland often offers inspiration to recover that they may not have access to in their normal lives.
Now is the time to put yourself first, and truly heal for good.
