Erich Rabe is a Mental Health Technician at Recovery Unplugged’s Detox Facility in Lake Worth. On any given day it is his responsibility to keep track of and communicate with clients to ensure they are safe and that their needs are met. He also does pick-ups and transfers clients, helping with their intake processes from time to time. Erich can relate to the clients because he’s gone through the process himself, doing everything from inpatient to outpatient care. Before working with Recovery Unplugged he managed a halfway house.
Originally from Michigan, Erich came to Florida in February, 2018 to get clean and sober. He works the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, and truly believes he wouldn’t be where he is or who he is without his fellowship. Outside of work, his main interests all revolve around music. Listening, playing, and writing music has been as fundamental in his recovery as his fellowship.
