Rob Ford claims he's getting the help he needs while still helping constituents.

In an interview with Toronto Sun columnist and NEWSTALK 1010 host Joe Warmington, the Mayor says he is making calls to constituents while in rehab.

"I am getting help but I still want to help," Ford told the Sun.

The mayor went on to call his experience at the treatment facility 'amazing' but he would not part with details on the name of the centre or where it is located.

Joe Warmington joined NEWSTALK 1010's Moore in the Morning to discuss his chat with the Mayor.

Warmington says he was surprised when Ford answered his phone call and adds that while he has no reason to doubt the Mayor's claims that he is in a rehab facility, he is taking Ford at his word...

Ford says the program he's enrolled in reminds him of a football camp he attended as a child.

The Mayor adds that he realises the mess that he left behind and calls alcohol the 'worst drug of all.'

As for the rehab program itself, Ford says he is working out every day and he's learning about himself and his past.

He says there are meetings with "eight people in a group" and sometimes four "then there is a meal" before they have "one-on-one sessions."

While Ford would not say when he might be out of rehab, he promises he will be back in time for October's municipal election.

He pledges he will 'kick butt' once he's back in action.
