A Windsor alcohol and drug rehab center is launching a program to stop cocaine addiction for adolescents and adults through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Information from a Government of Canada website indicates that "cocaine is a stimulant that comes from the leaves of the South American coca bush. The leaves are processed to form a white crystalline powder (cocaine hydrochloride). This is the form of cocaine that is snorted, or dissolved in water and injected. Cocaine, in its powdered form, is sometimes mixed with things that look like it, such as sugars, cornstarch or talcum powder. Crack cocaine or 'freebase' cocaine are smokeable forms of cocaine that look like crystals or rocks. These forms of cocaine are made by chemically changing cocaine powder. Cocaine is also known as angie, blow, C, Charlie, coke, crack, flake, freebase, hard, Henry, nose candy, rock, snow, and stardust."

In order to kick cocaine out of an adolescent and adult's physical body, drug detox is an initial step. This allows all traces of cocaine to be filtered out under the guidance of a medical team. Counseling and therapy follow next, taking the client through his or her life and attempting to understand where their drug addiction started.

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.

Drug rehab centers stand firmly upon the foundation of the Twelve Spiritual Principles of recovery, which include Honesty, Hope, Faith, Courage, Integrity, Willingness, Humility, Love for Others (Brotherly and Sisterly), Justice, Perseverance, Spirituality and Service.

These centers exist to support and guide recovering individuals as they learn to seek a different path that does not involve drugs.

Entering and going through drug rehab can become a life-changing journey for any person serious about kicking their habit. For more information on Drug Addiction Treatment Centers, visit or call (226) 773-2395.
