Rob Ford to Undergo Substance Abuse Treatment



TORONTO (AP) - The lawyer for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says Ford will take a leave of absence to seek help for substance abuse.
Dennis Morris, Ford's lawyer, said Wednesday night that Ford acknowledges he has a substance abuse problem and he wants to do something about it.
Ford, who is seeking re-election in the October election, acknowledged last year after months of denials that he smoked crack in a "drunken stupor" after police said they obtained a video that appears to show him smoking crack. The video has never been released to the public. News reports of the crack video's existence first surfaced last May, igniting a media firestorm around Ford. He careened from one scandal to another, becoming a national embarrassment for many Canadians.
