The first step to getting help
Castle Craig offers free addiction assessments with expert admission specialists.

- No sales pitch, just support
- Assessments free of charge

You can click here or telephone 01721 722 763 to arrange yours now. Assessments can be organised over the telephone or via Skype.
How assessments help with treatment
During our first conversation, our series of questions help us to identify what will serve as the basis for your individualised treatment plan.
If you were then to attend Castle Craig for addiction treatment, this saves us time when it comes to discovering a diagnosis.
The psychiatrist from here will review the assessment and meet with you to follow up to devise the best course of treatment for your condition.

Behavioural addictions rehab
Behavioural addictions take on many shapes and forms. Types of addictions such as eating disorders, shopping, the internet, porn and sex are all compulsive behaviours that drive addiction.
Get help with:
Scottish funding and admissions:
Privately paying patients can access addiction rehabilitation immediately, or as soon as they are ready to do so. Emergency and critical admissions can also be processed quickly.
NHS Scotland referrals:
Whilst drug and alcohol addiction services can be paid for by NHS Scotland, underfunding and lack of space tends to mean that waiting lists are long. Therefore, admissions via this route can take several months.
UK medical insurance:
Admissions to private residential treatment via medical insurance is also another option. Here at Castle Craig, we are accepted by several providers including BUPA, Aetna, Aviva, CIGNA, AXA, Geo Blue and many others. Patients with insurance are usually granted access within 48 hours.
The benefits of private rehab
When it comes to addiction treatment the staff who manage your care are crucial to your recovery.
For those with drug and alcohol dependency issues, we always recommend the heavy involvement of medical staff such as on-site doctors and nurses, as well as a psychiatrist and medical director who can oversee your case.
This often ensures you get the best treatment available.
One of the main advantages of attending Castle Craig is the access to our 24-hour, round the clock medical team, which includes psychiatrists, doctors, nurses and therapists, all of which are accredited by Counselling Psychotherapy Scotland (COSCA).
You can meet our medically-trained staff here.
