(PRWEB) January 30, 2018
Chris Kirby, Director of Admissions at The Last House, stops by Dr Drew's show to talk about sober living with Bob Forrest and Dr. Drew Pinsky. They discuss the advantages of sober living and how to keep patients alive and well after rehab.
Chris Kirby came to The Last House originally as a client from the San Francisco Bay area. After he graduated from the program, he joined them as a "live-in" manager. He's worked on the front lines as a DUI school administrator and counselor and at a high end luxury aftercare program where he utilized motivational interviewing to illicit change without the ability to use consequences, and he is fostering hope in families of active drugs users. Chris continues his education by studying the latest assessment driven protocols to increase client retention.
