Addiction and the Legal Profession

Greg Dorst, JD, CAS

Greg Dorst was born in Fontana CA in 1955, the son steel mill parents. In 1973 he graduated from Chaffey High School and elected to attend Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, CA. Greg was a student-athlete earning a varsity letter in three (3) sports while lifeguarding on the beach in San Clemente in the summertime. By 1983 Greg had earned a law school degree from the University of La Verne College of Law and passed the California State Bar Exam.

As an attorney, Greg worked as a trial lawyer for the San Bernardino County Office of the District Attorney and as a private practitioner specializing in criminal defense and real estate litigation. In July of 1997, Greg stopped practicing law and began a new chapter in his life.

The year 2000 brought Certification as an Addiction Specialist and a career in the field of mental health and addiction. In 2004 Greg was selected to consult for The Other Bar, working with attorneys, judges and law students in need of help for substance abuse issues and mental health needs. Moreover, in 2009 Greg became the CEO of Cedar House Life Change Center and presided over its expansion on the way to becoming Southern California’s premier Co-Occurring Treatment Facility.

In 2014 Greg took a position as the Spiritual Director and Sr. Pastor of the Claremont Center for Spiritual Living, a non-denominational church and educational center in Claremont, CA. Greg finds that his work in the field of addiction “dove-tails beautifully with spiritual work”.
