Smarmore Castle Drug & Alcohol Rehab
Abstinence is The Only Way to Treat Addiction
At Smarmore Castle, our programme helps patients to achieve long-term sobriety from drugs or alcohol. We believe that abstinence is the only way for a person to truly recover from addiction. It is very unlikely that after being addicted, the person will be able to use drugs or alcohol in a recreational, non-abusive manner. This is why long-term sobriety is the only way to free themselves from addictive behaviour.
An addicted person sometimes surrounds themselves with other drug or alcohol abusers. Alternatively, they could be isolated and lonely because of their habit. In the former situation, the person is surrounded by triggers to negative, drug or alcohol abusing behaviour. If all of their friends also partake in heavy drinking or drug use, then they will find it very hard to maintain contact with these people after leaving rehab without relapsing.
People start drinking or using drugs for various different reasons. They could have initially been seeking a method of controlling stress at work or due to family circumstances. Whatever the reasons, our treatment programme at Smarmore Castle effectively helps patients to achieve long-term abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Abstinence is Proven to Work
At Smarmore Castle, our rehab programme has been developed over 30 years of experience in treating addiction. Thousands of patients with drug and alcohol abuse problems have successfully recovered as a result of our residential treatment. Our rehab centre is a new one, but our treatment programme is based on the clinically proven model of Castle Craig, our partner facility based in Scotland. Studies of patient outcomes from this addiction facility have proven that this treatment programme is effective. We achieve impressive results, helping people every day to find health and happiness in sobriety.
We incorporate the 12-Step ethos into our programme, which is also the model employed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). It is responsible for the effective treatment of countless people across the globe.
Achieving Long-Term Recovery
Prolonged drug and alcohol abuse can take a toll on the body, leaving the brain and the liver in a damaged state. However, the body is capable of healing itself to some extent if treated with respect and care. Abstinence is the only way to create the conditions necessary for healing to take place.
Although it can be incredibly challenging, abstinence is the only way for an addicted person to get better, and to live the life that they deserve.

- 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.
