Crack Cocaine Addiction, Treatment And Detox in Nova Scotia

Crack Cocaine is the new drug of choice for many people all over the world. Nova Scotia is proving to be no different. Crack cocaine due to its incredible psychologically addictive properties, is destroying and taking lives all over the province. While all illicit drugs are a problem for the community, crack cocaine is quickly climbing to the top of the list.

Crack cocaine's addictive properties are so powerful that it's hard to combat. So many people believe that simply trying it one single time will be a harmless experiment with an illicit drug. They could not be more wrong. The smoking of crack cocaine delivers to the brain an intense feeling of euphoria, power, and confidence. It also gives for a short period of time a feeling of great physical strength. These feelings are almost instantaneously and of the highest order. When the euphoria of smoking crack cocaine subsides in a half-hour or so, the absence of all those feelings, in contrast, will bring a person's way down; a crash. Now that person will do just about anything to feel that again. The results are an instant crack addict.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed.

With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
