Your Body Needs Abstinence in Order To Heal

Years of alcohol and drug abuse can leave vital organs such as the brain and the liver in a fragile or diseased state. Yet our bodies have a remarkable ability to heal over time, and abstinence provides the ideal conditions for this. The exercise facilities, healthy diet, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy of Castle Craig’s programme all assist in this process.

Addiction Is a Family Illness

Addiction destroys family life. At least 20% of the Republic of Ireland’s population is affected by the behaviour of someone with a serious drug or alcohol problem.

Abstinence Is the Safest Road to Recovery

The addicted person often lives in a culture of addiction, living dangerously and surrounded by negative influences. Many also live in isolation cut off from those they love. An abstinence-based programme such as Smarmore Castle’s, helps patients to steer their lives in a different direction, to avoid temptation, and to ensure a fulfilling life without alcohol or drugs.

Every individual has the potential to do this but there is one condition: you have to want it!

If alcohol controls your life, abstinence can set you free. Whether it be alcohol or drugs, addiction is a disease and the addicted person is unable to control their consumption. The only solution is to give up completely.
