Barry Rosen was a man of courage, faith and spirit who walked his talk and opened his heart on a deep level to every human being who was thirsty and open to learn. We are forever indebted to him for his compassion, humor, honesty and brilliance. He could connect with the highly educated and kids alike when he greeted them with "Dude". You will live forever in the hearts of all of us that were blessed by your presence.

There are people all over the world who owe their 2nd chance at life to Dr. Rosen and the guidance he so selflessly gave to them. I am one of those people. His wisdom coupled with his unique understanding of addiction, and all the things that come with it, was unparalleled. The world has lost a great man and his presence shall me missed by so many. His influence on my life shall be remembered and cherished always...

I went through the Sequoia Center back in 2002. I had a great experience and I am still sober and very indebted to this man! His Wednesday lectures were very informative as well as entertaining! Glad I spent a few moments with him! sincerely Peter from New Jersey!
