Lectures and Workshops

Rediscover Who You Are

Our residential rehab model incorporates evidence-based therapies, 12 Step philosophy and medical care.

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.

Members of our clinical team deliver around 10 lectures a week, this can also include carefully chosen educational DVDs. These daily lectures cover around 60 different topics including:

  • The disease of addiction,
  • The Twelve Steps
  • The medical complications of addiction,

  • My Loved One Doesn’t Want Help, What Do I Do?

    You can’t force someone to go to rehab. A person must be ready to commit to treatment if they want to get the most out of the programme. However, there are ways in which you can encourage someone to enter rehab, one of these ways is via an intervention with a trained interventionist, who facilitates an honest discussion between family members and the individual. This is something Smarmore Castle can arrange – contact us today.
