Professionalism and experience

Our team includes experienced professionals with years of experience in addiction treatment. It includes a Medical Director (Consultant Psychiatrist) and a Clinical Director together with skilled and trained Counsellors. The clinical team at Rutland Centre is multidisciplinary and includes psychotherapists, addiction counsellors, clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists and nurses. All of our counsellors are accredited members of their respective professional bodies including Addiction Counsellors of Ireland (ACI), Irish Association for Counselling Psychotherapists (IACP), Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP), Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI), and undertake regular training on new and emerging issues.

Rutland Centre also has an attending GP who visits every week (or as required) and we have experienced addiction nurses on site each afternoon, evening and through the night. Additional doctors, physicians, psychiatrists, and emergency hospital services are always available when necessary.

All of the staff at Rutland Centre, from the Board of Directors, Counsellors, Administration, Nursing, and Facilities staff are dedicated to providing a safe, secure, and highly confidential environment for our Clients.
