Therapy in Extended Care

A Highly Qualified Team of Staff

Our professional, dedicated team of Extended Treatment therapists are highly trained and experienced in treating addictions and mental health as well as providing relapse prevention skills. Each patient is assigned a focal therapist who they will meet with regularly for individual therapy.


The timetable at Castle Craig Extended Treatment is varied and engaging, but less intensive than primary care. Patients have more free time to engage in other non-therapeutic activities during the day. There is still a high emphasis on the 12 Steps and patients work through this in their time at Extended Treatment.

Patients benefit from twice-daily group therapy sessions, regular gym fitness sessions, individual therapy, complementary therapies and psychoeducational lectures.

Evenings involve offisite AA or NA meetings in Edinburgh, Peebles or Biggar, or inhouse fellowship meetings onsite, as well as weekly invited speakers from outside who come to share their stories of recovery.
