TORONTO – A cottage country rehab facility has confirmed Rob Ford is undergoing treatment at the Muskoka facility.

GreeneStone Clinic Muskoka issued a press release confirming Ford’s attendance on Friday afternoon.

“We ask that the public and the media respect the privacy of all the patients at GreeneStone, to ensure they receive the most comprehensive and effective treatment,” the release said.

Ford has been in the rehab facility since early in May when he took a leave of absence after an audio recording surfaced of him in a racist, sexist rant at an Etobicoke bar.

The same day, the Globe and Mail reported it had seen a second video of the mayor smoking what could be crack cocaine.

Global News has not been able to verify the existence of the video.

A photo of Ford, believed to be taken at the facility, was published on Twitter Friday morning.
