When Castle Craig was founded in 1988, Peter and Dr Margaret Ann McCann arrived in Scotland with a vision and a passion for helping those suffering from addiction. They had taken a leap of faith, leaving behind Clouds House in Wiltshire and bringing their young family north to Scotland to launch the first 12 Step rehab clinic Scotland had seen.
In the late 1980s, this was truly groundbreaking. At the time, Scotland had no residential rehab clinics, and it was a relatively new phenomenon in the UK.
Peter McCann had spent time in Hazelden in the United States, learning from their successful treatment programme in order to bring it over to the UK. Following the success of Clouds House, which they founded in 1983, they knew that this was what Scotland needed.
