Crack Cocaine Addiction, Treatment And Detox in Ontario

Crack cocaine is becoming quite a problem in the province of Ontario. Drug use in Toronto and Ottawa have skyrocketed over the last decade. And even a small city such as Barrie is getting a reputation for hard drugs, organized crimes, and prostitution, which are associated with crack. Ontario is trying to step in and control the crack cocaine on the streets and help the residents overcome their addiction.

Most of the drug rehabilitation and treatment facilities in Ontario are funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. They also receive some funding from the federal government. The cost of rehabilitation for most addicts and their families is far less than they would spend if they lived in Alberta or Saskatchewan. However, there are not enough facilities to get all the addicts the crack-cocaine addiction treatment and detox that they need. Crack cocaine addiction almost always has to be managed by an inpatient treatment; it is very hard to break the cycle of cocaine use while being in the same environment that they once did drugs.

The first step in getting a drug treatment is the assessment. Just about every drug abuse treatment facility in Ontario offers an assessment. Another option is to go to an assessment facility that is not associated with any rehabilitation center so as to get an unbiased answer about what is the best course of action for you. The next step is detox, and unlike a lot of other provinces, Ontario will let crack cocaine addicts detox in their treatment facilities since comparatively, it is not as bad as detoxing from other drugs. Most cocaine addicts sleep through the whole detox process. There are toll-free numbers throughout Ontario for anyone to call at any time of day or night to get their questions answered about how to best proceed, either for themselves or for a loved one.
