Rob Ford loves rehab and can't wait to get back and run for another term as mayor

Rob Ford thinks “rehab is amazing.” It reminds him of football camp.

The Toronto mayor, who has admitted to smoking crack and heavy drinking, is taking a leave of absence to rehabilitate after one-too-many public scenes. The treatment center reminds Ford of camp, “kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid,” he said in an interview with the Toronto Sun.

Ford spoke about the effect substance abuse has had on him. “I think alcohol is the worst drug of all. It makes you do things that you would never do or say things that you wouldn’t,” he said.

Ford is also apparently still intent on running for a second term as mayor this year. “Of course, I am coming back and I am going to kick butt,” he said.
