Cheshire Alcohol and Drug Abuse
Between 2008 and 2010, there were an average of 14 deaths as a result of drug use in Cheshire West and Chester. This was slightly lower than the average for the whole of England and Wales, but not significantly. In Cheshire, there was estimated to be 6.88 crack or opiate users per 1000 of the population in 2009/10. Among individuals registered with IMS (Integrated Monitoring System) treatment services in Cheshire in 2015/16, steroids were the most commonly abused drug group. In Cheshire East, this was followed by heroin (10.7% of drug users), and the same was true for Cheshire West and Chester (32.1%).
In 2010/11, 258 people were admitted to hospital due to drug-related mental or behavioural disorders, which was lower than the national average. However, 117 hospital admissions were attributed primarily to poisoning by drugs, which was higher than the national average.

Our Treatment Programme
The addiction treatment model at Smarmore Castle has been developed over 30 years by a world-renowned team of doctors and psychologists. We provide an intensive rehab programme that follows the 12 Steps Model.
The programme incorporates a rapid admissions process, during which the patient receives a full medical assessment and physical examination. They will then begin a period of detoxification from alcohol and drugs, which is closely monitored by our medical team.
- Our core treatment programme is made up of specialist addiction therapies including individual therapy, group therapy, CBT, Trauma therapy, grief therapy and family therapy.
- Our residential rehabilitation treatment programme is based on the clinically proven rehab treatment model pioneered by Castle Craig, our partner establishment in Scotland. At Smarmore Castle, our expert team of therapists, nurses and doctors are led by a highly-experienced Consultant Psychiatrist.
- It is supported by a range of complementary addiction therapies, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, equine therapy and drumming therapy. For patients suffering psychological conditions such as depression or eating disorders in addition to addiction problems, we offer dual diagnosis treatment.
- Patients enjoy access to our 22-metre indoor heated swimming pool with a sauna, steam room, gym and sports with our fitness instructor. In addition, patients can explore the 16 acres of private gardens surrounding Smarmore Castle.

Effectiveness of the Treatment at Smarmore Castle
Residential rehab treatment has been demonstrated to be more effective than outpatient treatment by numerous studies of patient outcomes. Although a fairly new rehab centre, Smarmore Castle follows the same clinical model as Castle Craig, our partner establishment in Scotland.
The resulting treatment programme is based on 30 years of experience rehabilitating drug and alcohol users. Castle Craig has conducted several studies on patient outcomes that demonstrate the effectiveness of this programme in cultivating long term abstinence in patients.
The results for 2015 revealed that around 73% of patients were still completely abstinent after one year of finishing treatment, while 92% were abstinent or reported reduced drug or alcohol use.
