Alcohol Addiction

At Smarmore Castle we have developed a specialised and effective treatment programme for alcohol addiction.

Effective treatment for Alcohol Addiction

At Smarmore Castle we have developed a specialised and effective treatment programme for alcohol addiction.

Alcoholism can have a devastating impact on personal lives, careers and relationships. However, you can overcome alcohol addiction with the correct treatment. Our evidence-based approach treats addiction as a disease of the brain that requires abstinence to achieve optimal recovery. 

If you or someone close to you is struggling with addiction and might be suffering from alcoholism, it is essential that you reach out for help as soon as possible.

Alcohol Detox

When patients first enter treatment they begin with our alcohol detox programme. Detox is an important stage of recovery, as it’s important to remove all traces of alcohol and drugs from the body allowing us to begin treating the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal comfortably and safely.

Throughout the detox process, an experienced team of doctors and nurses will support the patient at all times, to ensure their utmost safety and comfort. Our inpatient, on-site environment means that patients can join the daily programme of therapy and counselling as soon as they are physically able.

It’s important that patients begin their recovery programme as early as possible.

Individualised Alcohol Treatment Plan

Our consultant psychiatrist drafts a personalised treatment plan for each patient, which takes into account their history of alcohol abuse as well as any additional needs. Throughout their time here, our team of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses and therapists frequently meet to discuss the progress of each patient and update their treatment plan accordingly.

Alcoholism Rehab Model

The Smarmore Castle treatment programme follows the Castle Craig Model which combines a number of evidence-based therapies for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction. Our 12 step-based programme combines detox, high-quality medical care, psychotherapy including personal therapygroup therapyfamily therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy among others.

Many of our therapists have successfully been through recovery themselves and have a deep understanding of what our patients are experiencing throughout the programme. Our extensive range of complementary therapies that aid in well-being and spirituality include equine, music and art therapy.

Exercise and a well-balanced diet help patients regain their strength and also provides a solid foundation during recovery. The supportive community and peaceful, countryside surroundings make Smarmore Castle a conducive environment for overcoming addiction.

Each patient is assigned a primary therapist, who provides regular one-on-one counselling throughout their stay. They will oversee the patient’s progress and work with the head nurse and consultant psychiatrist to develop a continuing care plan when it is time for the patient to leave.
