International Admissions to Residential Rehab

Patients from outside the EU usually access treatment at Castle Craig in Scotland or Smarmore Clinic in Ireland as private patients. We are usually able to arrange rapid admission, as soon as we have all the necessary medical documents and the pre-admission assessment has been finalised.

Steps for an International Admission

  • We require a letter from your family doctor and any relevant previous medical records.
  • This is followed by the pre-admission assessment. This is an in-depth assessment over the phone or a secure video-link, conducted by our Consultant Psychiatrist. The purpose is to gather as much medical and background information about the patient and his/her history of alcohol/drug abuse so that a proper, personalised addiction treatment plan can be established.
  • If you are a privately paying patient, you can contact one of our clinics directly for admission or you can call our London consultants on 020 3468 6602 who can advise on the different treatment options available for you.

Paying for Treatment

There are two options to pay for treatment: through private medical insurance or other private funding. Contact us and we will be happy to discuss treatment packages and payment options.

Our personalised alcohol and drug treatment programme at our clinics in Scotland and Ireland is covered by major international private healthcare providers such as BUPA, AXA PPP, WPA, Aetna, Aviva, BCBS, JSIS, Coventry and Cigna. 

International Quality Assurance

We are committed to providing the highest standards of clinical care. Our practice is governed by clinical protocols and procedures which are regularly reviewed. Both our clinics: Castle Craig and Smarmore Clinic have the International ISO 9001 quality assurance system in place. This is an internationally-recognised accreditation for quality management and the world's most established quality framework.
