Jose Hernandez Jr.
Jose Hernandez Jr. strongly believes that treatment without
aftercare is wor thless. The f irst 24 hours after discharge from
a treatment center, an individual should know where their
next AA meeting is. Jose builds trust and alliance with clients
by approaching them with honesty, love and compassion. He
motivates clients to change.
From previous employments, Jose has gained knowledge and
experience from all sides of the recovery world. Working at
the Malibu Ranch, he began doing service work, taking clients
to meetings and mentoring 'newcomers'. He then managed
a sober living in Santa Monica. He later worked for an interventionist
in Orange County as a sober companion. He was
then employed at The Canyon at Peace Park in Malibu as a
resident counselor for three years. Through these professional
experiences, he developed a unique plan for case management; something
client's are not usually offered-which helps to bridge
the gap between a clients past and healthy future. This program was launched successfully in Santa Monica in 2007. Long-term
case management is essential in order to attain long-term
sobriety. Jose most recently teamed up with Paul Kaufman to take over Riviera Recovery, a business founded in Malibu. Jose finished his education at LMU to received
his CADAAC certificate.
Jose's mission at MD Home Detox is to ensure that no one
stands alone in their recovery: neither clients nor families!
