Welcome to White Oaks

Situated on a 35 acre site in the tranquil countryside of Donegal, on the outskirts of Derry City, White Oaks Addiction Treatment Centre is ideally located to offer a relaxing environment to begin the journey towards healing and recovery from addiction. Over recent years it has established itself as a premier facility in Ireland for helping people to address the complex issues involved in a dependency on alcohol, drugs (illegal & prescription) and gambling. The 30 day residential programme, on offer after assessment, is comprised of group and individual therapies which are underpinned by the 12 step model of treatment.
