Improving Outcomes with Extended Treatment

It has been shown that the longer a person stays in treatment, the better the outcome for abstinence as well as overall improvements. Three months is now referred to as the “gold standard” of treatment.

Patients Coming from Castle Craig

For patients coming from the Castle Craig primary treatment programme, our Consultant Psychiatrist makes a recommendation for Extended Treatment to the patient based on their progress in their personal treatment plan.

Patients Coming from External Referrers

Our admissions team will work with you over the phone to gather the information necessary to complete the admission. Our Consultant Psychiatrist may wish to speak with any treating professionals or with the patient. For more information please visit our Information for Referrers page.

Our Extended Treatment programme is open to anyone who has been through a 4-6 week, 12 Step based rehab treatment programme.
