Family Support

Louise C, business owner and Paul Kirsten, therapist at Castle Craig

Louise C, who runs a successful business in Scotland, tells the story of how it took her husband, father and brother to get her in a car and drive her to a rehab clinic: "it took three men to drop me at the door of Castle Craig. The car doors were locked because they knew I would jump out."

Paul Kirsten, therapist at Castle Craig, talks about the fear people have of 'coming out' about their problems with alcohol and drugs, especially in the workplace. "If people know they are going to be supported around the issues of addiction they are going to be more encouraged to open up and to seek the neccessary help."
