A Sherbrooke alcohol and drug rehab center is announcing that it is launching a new program that will help adults and adolescents kick their addiction to GHB at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to information on GHB released by a Government of Canada website, "GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) is a central nervous system depressant, naturally present in the body in very small amounts. However, it can also be made in illegal labs and sold on the street. Because the chemicals and processes used to make GHB vary, the purity and strength of the final product are not predictable. GHB is usually taken orally and may be sold as a white powder or as capsules. It can also be sold as a clear, colorless liquid which is odorless and tasteless, allowing it to be slipped into drinks without detection. Its sedative effects have been used to prevent victims from resisting sexual assault. For this reason, it is often called a 'date rape' drug."

The use and abuse of GHB causes many problems within an individual, and Drug Addiction Treatment Centers begins a process of rehabilitation through drug detox. This cleanses the physical body of any associated traits with this drug.

After detox takes place, therapeutic efforts begin. Usually, there are real-life issues that a person has used drugs to hide behind.

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 Addiction Treatment 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.
