Fast and Easy Admissions, Our Team Are Here to Assist You During This Challenging Time

Fast, Simple Rehab Admission Process

If you need help with alcohol dependency, drug use, and gambling addictions, we invite you to contact our admissions team at Smarmore Castle.  

Deciding to seek help can be challenging, but we will support you at every stage, providing the information and guidance you need. In addition, every patient receives a free pre-admission assessment.

Rehab Admission: Referral and Funding

Initial contact and referrals do not need to come through a patient’s GP or psychiatrist.

  • We accept self-referrals from the patient, family members, employers, or other relevant professionals.
  • We admit and accept patients from Ireland, the UK, The EU and even further afield.
  • Patients either pay for treatment privately, through medical insurance or via a statutory funder such as the national health system.

Once we establish the type of funding, our admissions team will be able to process your admission to Smarmore Castle, and treatment can begin.

Our Caring Admissions Team Are Here to Answer Your Questions in Complete Confidentiality.

Free Pre-Admission Assessments

Every person considering admission receives a free pre-admission assessment over the phone before entering treatment.

The assessment is led and managed by our mental-health trained admissions team and is easy to organise, either through this form or by calling +353 (0)41 214 5111.

The pre-admission assessment is essential as it will act as the basis for your future treatment plan.

Once conducted, one of our therapists or doctors will use this pre-assessment to assess the complexity of your case so that they can begin to assign and plan the most suitable in-person treatments and therapies.

  • How to Access Rehab With Health Insurance

    For those experiencing existing mental health conditions in Ireland, there are private medical insurers who can help you cover treatment. As addiction experts, we know that receiving the appropriate care and support when you have a mental health disorder is pivotal to attaining long-lasting recovery. Below, we will go through the various health insurance options to help you understand your options when it comes to seeking private residential care for substance abuse. Please note that there is no guarantee that you can be covered for all addiction problems as policies are always assessed on a case-by-case basis. Find Out More

  • 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.
