Types of Addiction Treatment in Belfast

We understand addiction like no one else.

Whatever your vice is, we know that addiction can often make you feel like you’re all alone, with no one there to listen or understand your story, let alone help guide you to the other side.

And whilst addiction programmes can be few and far between in Belfast, there is help and support near you if you know where to look.

Here at Smarmore Castle, we believe that everyone deserves to be heard and helped, so regardless of who you choose to reach out to, we are happy to help you find the right place to recover.

For advice, immediate support or admissions help to our centre, contact us on live chat or click here.
