For five years, from 2000 to 2005, Rob was a Program Development Specialist at Bellwood Health Services, an in-patient addiction treatment facility in Toronto, where his principal responsibilities were development of sexual addiction treatment programs and concurrent addiction and PTSD treatment programs for military members and veterans.
