A Regina drug rehab center is launching a program that will help adults and adolescents stop their addiction to bath salts.

According to information from the Government of Canada website, "'Bath salts' are man-made designer drugs that produce both stimulant and hallucinogenic effects. While these drugs are often sold as white crystalline powders that resemble conventional bath salts sold for hygienic purposes, these two very different products should not be confused. Short-term effects are usually felt within minutes to an hour after consuming 'bath salts' and can last for several hours. They can include rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest pain or chest pressure, palpitations, high blood pressure, decreased blood circulation and painful white or blue extremities, blurry vision, tremor, fever, and hypothermia."

Drug rehabilitation allows adults and adolescents a chance to get clean from their drug of choice, whether it is bath salts, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, or prescription drugs. A part of this process is detoxification, cleansing out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances.

Once this process takes place, then counseling and therapeutic methods can be brought in for support. Real-life issues that a person has used drugs to hide, repress or deny within themselves sometimes lie behind the drug abuse. Some issues might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse.

Counselors and therapists with many years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment and addiction can help make the transition from addiction to recovery easier. These drug rehab staff members can rely on their personal and professional experiences with addiction to offer compassion and support to recovering individuals working to overcome their addictions.
