Anthony Deegan


In recovery for three years after a long and traumatic journey from addiction to recovery, Anthony is a real inspiration to people in our addiction rehab programme.

Anthony is open about this journey from addiction to recovery in an effort to reduce the stigma and shame that surrounds drug addiction and prevents people from reaching out for help.

Anthony says: “When someone comes into Smarmore Castle with addiction, there’s nothing more powerful than for them to see someone else who was here in their shoes, to hear your story and to know that if I can do this, they can.”
