MA, MBA, CAC Diplomate

Mr. Rotenberg is Vice President of Treatment at Caron Treatment Centers and is recognized throughout the industry as an expert in treating co-occurring mental health disorders, relapse and family issues, especially related to adolescents and young adults. He has pioneered innovative treatment approaches and developed gender-specific programs that emphasize cultural literacy as a key element in adolescent and young adult addiction treatment. His assertion that industry experts and parents must “speak teen” in order to prevent and treat adolescent addiction inspired ground breaking research that identified how teens communicate about alcohol and drugs on the internet. He has also actively campaigned against the phrase “gateway drug,” which often dismisses the harm caused by alcohol and marijuana on today’s teens and young adults. He is a regular guest on Trudge the Road, a nationally syndicated radio show, a frequent speaker on the national circuit and is a board-certified addictions counselor.
