About Castle Craig
Castle Craig is a world-renowned residential rehab clinic which treats people suffering from alcohol and drug addictions, many of whom have other complex conditions, such as gambling and gaming addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and eating disorders.Castle Craig is part of the Castle Health Group that includes Smarmore Castle in Ireland, Stockholms beroendeklinik, CATCH Recovery in London, and Castle Craig Nederlands.
Built by a wealthy family in 1798 (whilst Napoleon was invading Egypt), the mansion house of Castle Craig has retained many of its original features including magnificent fireplaces, marble pillars and exquisitely carved paneling. After it left private ownership around the time of WWII it became a hospital for the wounded in the war. And after this it became a school for children with respiratory problems. Since it was purchased by the McCanns in 1988, the house and other buildings have been fully renovated to fulfill all necessary requirements of a leading mental health hospital in the UK while preserving the original feel of the estate.
There are 50 acres of woodland and gardens (that’s the equivalent of 50 football pitches) at Castle Craig with a lot of space for activities and therapies that have evolved over the years such as equine therapy, alpaca walks, nature walks, fitness activities and outdoor therapy.
A world-renowned addiction treatment clinic, introducing recovery to the lives of over 10,000 people and their families. We have run successful outcomes studies, the most recent in 2017 showed that XX% of patients who come into treatment remain abstinent for up to a year. We are inspected regularly by our governing body Healthcare Improvement Scotland - and here’s a nice story - our current Medical Director, Consultant Psychiatrist Professor Jonathan Chick, used to actually be an inspector for HIS, and he was so impressed by what he saw at Castle Craig that he applied for the role of Medical Director when it came up.
The Castle Craig vision of ‘recovery’ goes beyond helping patients when they are in treatment; they aim for long lasting results, and that is why their programme encompasses a range of therapeutic tools that really get to the root of the problem. Their abstinence based, evidence-based programme follows the 12-Step philosophy and incorporates one-to-one therapy, group therapy, complementary therapies such as equine therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, acupuncture and massage, a robust family programme and a continuing care programme with a range of options.
Compassion and respect for each person who walks through the doors is the focus.

I have been referring to Castle Craig and Smarmore Castle for many years and have had many happy patients returned to me from the excellent primary care which they received at your facilities. Not only have you made myself and my supervisor extremely welcome on site visits. It has always felt as if Castle Craig, the founding family and personal service is part of the culture and fabric you deliver with the highest industry standards.
