Dr. Robin Barnett is a revered behavioral health, addictions and sex addiction expert, and former CEO of a progressive addiction rehabilitation facility in New Jersey, which she co-founded in 2006.  A Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor for over two decades, she has helped countless people conquer addictive behavior and a multitude of behavioral challenges.

Inspired by firsthand experience when her own brother encountered a downward spiral with alcoholism and drugs, Dr. Barnett learned that exhibiting “tough love” is one of the hardest and emotionally challenging strategies for an addict’s family to do. Dr. Robin found that she could take the “tough love” concept and create something new, and healing, freeing the family and the addict of the guilt that accompanies managing an addictive situation. She hopes to help others manage the heartache of this struggle by sharing her professional-and personal-insights in a practical guide for families of addicts, Addict In The House: A No-Nonsense Family Guide Through Addiction and Recovery, Dr. Robin’s first book, was published in August of 2016. This book quickly became the go-to guide for rehabs across the country in assisting families with their loved one.

Dr. Robin holds a Doctorate in Human Services Administration, and Masters in Social Work. She holds 2 clinical licenses, and is certified as a sex addiction counselor, hypnotist, and is a National Master Certified Interventionist.

Dr. Barnett is currently working on her second book with celebrated publisher, New Harbinger.
