Alcohol Addiction Support: Charities, Rehabs & Free Help

Smarmore Castle in County Louth is one of Ireland’s best alcohol and drug rehab clinics offering tonnes of addiction support. Over a thousand people have entered our drug and alcohol addiction facility, many of which have gone on to achieve life-long sobriety and abstinence.

If you’re struggling with alcohol or drug abuse, we’re here for you and can offer advice on the best course of action you need to take to seek treatment.

Your first step

To assess your needs and provide you with the right medical help, therapies and treatments we conduct free alcohol and drug addiction assessments that can take 30 minutes or less.

Here, we can also discuss your options and requirements, which can help us identify alternative care for you should Smarmore Castle not be an option for you.
