Rehab clinic lambasted after overdose death - Times Online

Rehab clinic lambasted after overdose death - Times Online: "sheriff has criticised one of Scotland’s leading private hospitals over the “entirely preventable” death of a young drug addict.
Kieran Nichol died after he was prescribed the heroin substitute methadone at Castle Craig Hospital in the Borders. A fatal accident inquiry heard that the dying 20-year-old patient was put to bed by staff and told to sleep.
Sheriff Gordon Liddle said in his Determination following the case that it was “difficult to identify anything that went significantly well”.
Castle Craig is one of Europe’s leading rehabilitation clinics, charging about £400 a day. The former leader of Glasgow council, Steven Purcell, and Peter Howson, the artist, have sought treatment there.
Mr Nichol, a valium addict, spent six weeks at the clinic in the autumn of 2005 before discharging himself that October. On December 9, suffering from depression and suspected drug abuse, he was readmitted. He died two days later.
Sheriff Liddle said a “different decision or choice by a number of individuals could have made the difference”."
