– CEO & Founder
– Admissions Director
Robert grew up in Pasadena, Ca. He is the younger of two siblings born to Hungarian immigrants that moved to the United States in the 1970s in their pursuit of the American dream. Robert grew up in a conservative household with very ambitious and parents. Through years of private-schooling and watching his father run a very successful business, he believed he too was surely bound to continue his education in a prestigious university followed by a successful career, little did he know his plans would abruptly be diverted when his seemingly innocent experimentation with prescription pain-killers would lead him down a destructive path of lies, desperation and hardcore opiate addiction.
After being given the choice to get sober or go to prison, he chose sobriety. Unbeknownst to Robert, this ultimatum would save he and his family’s relationship and change the course of his life. Robert started working in treatment as a technician, working directly with clients, understanding their struggles, and advocating for them, he developed an insightful outlook as to what a client’s needs were based on their experiences as well as his own. He now works in admissions, engaging with client’s and their loved ones on a daily basis, providing them with the direction, resources, guidance and compassion they need to seek the treatment and help they so desperately need.
