Smarmore Castle Drug & Alcohol Rehab
We set a slow and gentle withdrawal pace from alcohol and drugs so that detox can take place alongside psychotherapy.Detox is only the first stage of addiction treatment.
It is important to start the psychotherapy in parallel with the detox process so that patients are embedded into their recovery programme and begin to form relationships with therapists and fellow patients as early as possible.

- My Loved One Doesn’t Want Help, What Do I Do?
You can’t force someone to go to rehab. At the end of the day, it needs to be their decision because they are the ones that need to be open to turning their lives around. There are ways in which you can encourage someone to enter treatment, one of these ways is via an intervention with a trained interventionist, who facilitates an honest discussion between family members and the addict. This is something Smarmore Castle can arrange – contact us today.
