Residential Addiction Treatment Facility
Smarmore Castle is a recovery treatment facility located in County Louth, Ireland. Smamore Castle was founded by Peter and Dr Margaret Ann McCann, the directors of Castle Craig Hospital in Scotland.
The treatment programme focuses on various addictions, prescription medications abuse, alcohol and drug addiction, and gambling dependence. The medical treatment is supervised by an experienced Consultant Psychiatrist and a compassionate Clinical Psychologist.
The professional staff is dedicated to treating many of the co-occurring disorders that are revealed during a rehab process. Patients with addiction may also suffer from stress, anxiety, trauma, depression, and burn-out.
Our team of doctors, nurses and therapists make Smarmore Castle a welcoming environment, a place where patients can regain sobriety and learn how to live a happy and meaningful life.
