At Castle Craig Hospital the Consultant Psychiatrist, doctors and therapists work closely to prescribe individualised detoxification plans, tailored to the patient’s needs, and agreed with the patient. The nursing team provides patients with 24 hour medical cover.
We set a slow withdrawal pace from drugs and start the psychotherapy gently in parallel with the physical detoxification process.
Watch this new video which describes the drugs and alcohol detox phase of treatment at Castle Craig rehab clinic to learn more about our addiction treatment programme.
Dr McCann, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Castle Craig Hospital and Prof Chick, Medical Director give a detailed overview of the detox stage of treatment: “This is not an isolated block - it’s a period when the individual is going to meet the therapist, will have his or her buddy from the community group, they’ll be getting involved in the life of the community.”
