An Oshawa alcohol and drug rehab center is introducing a program geared toward helping adults and adolescents stop their cocaine addiction through services available at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to information from the National Anti-Drug Strategy, ecstasy is a “street drug only made in illegal labs. Tablets may not even contain ecstasy - could be filled with cornstarch, soaps, detergents or other drugs. The logos on the tablets are meaningless. They don't identify what's in the pills or what are the risks. The effects of a single hit of ecstasy can last from 3 to 6 hours - but the after-effects may last for days or weeks (much longer than any party). Short-term effects are unpredictable; may cause euphoria, as well as anxiety, decreased appetite, increased blood pressure and heart rate, teeth grinding, nausea, paranoia, hallucinations and more. Long-term effects of ecstasy use include weight loss, exhaustion, anxiety, depression, psychotic symptoms and more."

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

Once this process takes place, then counseling and therapeutic methods can enter into play. More times than not, there are real-life issues that a person has used drugs to hide, repress or deny within themselves. Some issues might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse. Drug rehab allows clients time to discern and figure out what is their truth around these situations.

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.

Staff and clients are able to exchange stories of shared experiences, which will let recovering individuals know they are not alone in their journey. The relationships formed between recovering individuals and staff members provide a strong support network that offers strength and guidance during the recovery journey, throughout the transition to life outside of treatment and as recovering individuals adjust to sobriety.
