Drug addiction is a disease that can lead to changes in the structure of the part of the brain which controls brain functioning, coordination and movement of the body.
It is important to treat the problem as soon as possible, for the best chance of a complete recovery. Attempting to detox on your own can be dangerous and does not tackle the underlying causes of addiction. We can help.

Studies of patient outcomes show that our approach effectively helps people to achieve life-long abstinence from drugs.
Drugs Detox Plan at Smarmore
At Smarmore Castle, patients begin their stay by completing our drug detoxification programme to remove all traces of drugs from their body. Throughout this stage, an experienced team of doctors and nurses support the patient at all times, to ensure their utmost safety and comfort. Our residential, on-site treatment means that patients can join the daily programme of therapy and counselling as soon as they are physically able.
Individualised Drugs Rehab Programme
Detoxing from drugs is not enough to achieve long-lasting recovery. The patient must tackle the psychological and behavioural components of their addiction too.
Each patient at Smarmore Castle is given a personalised treatment plan developed by our Consultant Psychiatrist which targets every aspect of their drug addiction. This 12 step programme includes detox, medical care, personal therapy, group therapy, complementary therapies, family therapy and continuing care arrangements. A healthy diet and regular exercise in a discreet private, countryside location helps the patient to regain both their mental and physical strength.
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.
