Jeff Rap, MSW


Jeffrey D. Rapp has an MA in Experimental Psychology and a Master’s Degree in

Social Work. He has been a Licensed Social Worker since 2008. His first area of

interest was mental health and psychopathology, and he completed a research study on

trauma, anger, and alcohol.

After working at a psychiatric hospital while interning with an addiction treatment group

for homeless men, Mr. Rapp spent many years as a drug and alcohol counselor. He

worked at an inpatient rehab and various outpatient programs, providing group and

individual therapy to people who often had severe addiction combined with trauma or

psychological issues. Following this, Mr. Rapp continued his focus on mental health as

a telephonic consultant for an Employee Assistance Program, at times providing

immediate support for callers in crisis.

As a writer for American Addiction Centers, Mr. Rapp appreciates the opportunity to

speak to a wider audience, and to communicate the truth about drugs and alcohol as he

understands it.
