Most people suffering from alcohol and drug addiction don’t know why this has happened to them. We want to educate our patients and inform them that they are suffering from a disease, not a moral disorder.We want to educate our patients.
We deliver lectures helping patients at Smarmore Castle to gain awareness of the behaviour and attitude patterns resulting from addiction which provides relief and direction throughout the rehab treatment process.
