Professionals with drug and alcohol problems

Drug & alcohol problems at work

Medical team

Castle Craig is fully medically managed. This means that there is a Medical Director who oversees the whole treatment programme, as well as a full-time Consultant Psychiatrist who works exclusively for Castle Craig, and a number of other doctors within the medical team also.

Medical care begins at the assessment by the Consultant Psychiatrist. The Consultant uses this as a basis for the personalised care plan for the patient and prescribes any necessary course of detoxification.

On arrival the patient enters detox where the nursing team take over care and ensure a comfortable and safe detoxification from drugs and alcohol.

The Consultant Psychiatrist discusses patient cases with the rest of the medical team so that patient care is well joined-up. 

He or she continually monitors the physical and mental health status of patients throughout treatment and approves all discharge plans.

Resident medical officers (general practitioner doctors) are onsite to ensure dedicated medical cover 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are immediately available to deal with any medical emergencies that arise.
