“Celebrity Rehab star Bob Forrest’s memoir about his drug-fueled life in the LA indie rock scene of the ’80s and ’90s and his life-changing decision to become a drug counselor who specializes in reaching the unreachable.
On Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab and Sober House, Bob Forrest is a counselor who helps some of the most unruly celebrities heal. He gets through to them because he knows what they’re going through–he was once the frontman of Thelonious Monster, a cult-favorite band, and ran with a group of musicians that included the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis and Flea. Though his band’s future looked bright, Forrest was in bad shape and let his career slip away as he sunk deep into chemical dependency. He went through many unsuccessful stints in rehab. When his sobriety finally stuck, he saw an opportunity to help others who were in his same predicament. Fed up with the traditional rehab approach, he eventually developed his own outpatient program called Hollywood Recovery Services. He has since helped guide many people back from the brink of death.”
