Why Castle Craig?
With 37 years of experience, Castle Craig is a family-run hospital with compassion at its core.
We understand that all individuals have different relationships with their substance use and therefore require different treatment methods. We offer a wide range of therapies including physical exercise, equine-assisted therapy, art therapy and mindfulness meditation.
Recovery is not just about giving up your drug of choice. It is also about restructuring your life so that you no longer feel powerless towards that substance and can make healthy decisions that will benefit you in the long term.
At Castle Craig, we have a team of medical specialists on hand to ensure patients get the help they need for long-term recovery.
