“Who am I? I'm the guy with the horn-rimmed glasses and the hat that you've seen on VH1's popular TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. I'm also known in some circles as ‘the Junkie Whisperer.’ It's a title I worked hard to earn. I've helped addicts from all walks of life and have offered them support, encouragement and guidance based on my own first-hand experiences as I navigated the stormy seas of my own drug and alcohol dependency. It's been a strange trip. I started out as a suburban teenage drunkard from the Southern California suburbs and became a sidekick of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and, later, to Dr. Drew Pinsky. Now, here I am. You'll have to judge for yourself.” Bob Forrest is a certified addiction specialist and counselor as well as a musician. A rock-and-roll Zelig who has been on the Los Angeles music scene since the early eighties with his bands Thelonious Monster and the Bicycle Thief, he’s also a recovering addict who’s been sober for the past fifteen years. The father of two boys, Elijah, twenty-four, and Elvis, eighteen months, Bob lives with his wife and baby in Los Angeles, CA.
