Wes Geer, Rock to Recovery Companions CEO, founded Rock to Recovery, a music-therapy company, in 2012, after retiring from touring with the band Korn. Because he is known in the music industry as someone who helps people get and stay sober, friends began reaching out for assistance finding treatment resources. The need for experienced sober companions who are known for confidentiality and a broad range of services became apparent. Out of that need, Rock to Recovery Companions was born.
