Caring, compassionate, dedicated and driven. These are the most visible qualities when watching how one of our Executives, Jeff Chasen, interacts with prospective clients on arguably one of the toughest days of their lives; the day they ask for help. Jeff has been at the helm of several successful treatment centers’ Admission Department’s and Business Development efforts throughout his career. Being on the team at Refresh is Jeff’s most meaningful project yet because our center is located in the South Shore of Massachusetts which is the area he grew up in. “If I could help one person or family that I grew up with, after all I’ve done and put my own family through before finding recovery, that would really make me feel like I’ve come full circle. It’s exciting to think about!”In his spare time you can catch Jeff on adventures with his 5 year old son, in the gym hitting new fitness goals or out creating digital content for his social media audiences!
