Today’s episode is a conversation with, Joe Schrank and his refreshing and direct perspectives on recovery advocacy. Joe has spent his life in and around active alcoholism. After stabilizing his own post-undergrad depression and alcoholism, he returned to school and studied clinical social work at Iona College and the University of Illinois. Following a tenure at Promises in Malibu, CA, Joe established the first sober living facility in New York City, Loft 107. Frustrated with the lack of media attention on the recovery community, Joe then co-founded TheFix.com a really great online presence on things addiction and recovery. Most recently, Joe founded Rebound Brooklyn, an innovative treatment program in Brooklyn, New York. Joe has a regular media presence in mainstream media as an outspoken and well spoken Recovery Advocate par excellence.
Joe’s hobbies include obsessing over the Yankees and avoiding human contact in that very New York and great way. Joe’s dog, Mik, is one of the staff at Rebound Brooklyn in a very unique way. Joe’s been intoxicant free for a long time and just wait till you get a hold of this man’s “go brainer” as a result. To find out more about Joe go to TheFix.com and ReboundBrooklyn.com.
