Safe & Expert Addiction Treatment & Detox
For the latest guidance please contact our admissions team. January 2022.
At Smarmore Castle Private Clinic we firmly support the involvement of family and close friends in the recovery of our patients. On admission, patients are advised about contact with family and friends; we generally advise that this is kept to a minimum during the first 7 days of treatment to encourage full immersion in the programme without distractions, and then following this, phone calls and visit days are encouraged and advised upon by staff members.

- 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.
