Oshawa, Ontario Drug Rehab Centers

The city of Oshawa can be considered part of the Greater Toronto Area and has a population of people just over 300,000 living in one area. There are not as many Canadians in terms of ethnicity, there are just about 40 per cent of the population that is Canadian. Other ethnicities include Irish, German, Italian, Ukrainian, Scottish and so Oshawa is very diverse in very different degrees. Because Toronto is so diverse, many of these communities surrounding Toronto like Oshawa are home to numerous cultures. Drug problems and crime affect these individuals just like any other group of people living throughout the area. The drug problems that affect the inner city of Toronto overflow into cities such as Oshawa, and this place's many people at risk. Oshawa has seen a lot of drugs, and so people should become more aware of the dangers of drugs so that we can curb this epidemic. The two drugs which one will hear of most of the time in Oshawa are marijuana and cocaine. Marijuana plays a big role in the drug market and the drug addiction in Oshawa. Stronger drug addictions often start with marijuana. However, marijuana in itself can create an addiction and so people can have trouble stopping their marijuana use. As an example, two men were caught on the road and charged for possessing marijuana with intent of trafficking. Weapons were also involved and so will not help the case of those two Oshawa men. Marijuana is very popular and so trafficking it can be very lucrative, but it also has its risks.

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.

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.
