Support Specialist

Jeff Hocking works as a Support Specialist here at Asana Recovery, directly assisting our clients and medical staff members throughout detox and residential treatment. He helps with medication, performs observation, including monitoring withdrawal symptoms, and assists in other ways, including scheduling medical appointments. Jeff focuses on each client individually, supporting overall client health in recovery, and ensuring that each client’s stay here is both safe and successful. Jeff says, “As a life-long drug addict myself, I failed in many attempts at sobriety until one particular case manager showed genuine empathy, respect, and acceptance of me right where I was.  That was what triggered my motivation and confidence to be able to succeed in recovery.  That man saved my life, and I want to be able to help others in the same way—meeting them right where they are and hopefully inspiring them to find success in recovery, too.”

Jeff is a Registered Alcohol and Drug Technician in the State of California. His recovery is the most important thing to him and it is what drives him to advance his career in addiction treatment. He is currently working toward his state certification as a drug and alcohol treatment counselor, and we are glad to have him on our team at Asana Recovery.
