Joe Schrank

Social worker, interventionist, community advocate, cofounder of TheFix.com


Joe Schrank has spent his life in and around active alcoholism and addiction. Joe underperformed on the USC campus preferring to blame coaches and professors for his issues rather than to get mental health treatment. After a girl dumped him for his “drinking problem”, Joe entered treatment for depression and alcoholism. Following successful treatment, he returned to school and studied clinical social work at Iona College and then at The University of Illinois. Following a tenure at Promises in Malibu, CA, Joe established the first sober living facility in New York City, Loft 107. Frustrated with the lack of media attention focused on the recovery community, Joe then founded TheFix.com with Maer Roshan. A big believer in “meeting the client where the client is” Joe founded High Sobriety, the first cannabis inclusive addiction treatment center, using medicinal cannabis as an option for some people. Joe continues to advocate for public health policy over incarceration, alcohol tax justice, and ending the violent and racist drug war. Joe’s hobbies include obsessing over the NY Yankees, overeating, and avoiding human contact. He has yet to keep “that’s the last tattoo” or “no more dogs” promise. He has been intoxication free for 25 years and has two boys who have never seen him drink.
