Kirk Chisholm


LMSW, CASAC Clinical Director

The people most affected by drugs are usually NOT the ones using, it’s the people who are connected to the person with the substance use disorder (SUD). Families, friends, and co-workers experience the most discomfort because of another person’s SUD. At RevCore, we help clients understand how their SUD affects those people whom they are connected to, and those that care about them, helping them put their lives back together. And we directly help those affected families as well. Helping to put family relationships, friendships, and work relationships back together is the primary reason I do this work; it’s what gives me the greatest pleasure and most satisfaction from my job.
My start in the field of substance use disorder treatment began in 2007 when I took advantage, through a federal government program, of an opportunity to attend school to become a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor-Trainee. Throughout my career, I’ve worked in outpatient treatment centers in Staten Island and lower Manhattan and I received my CASAC credential in 2012. Never one to sit still, I continued my studies and completed a Masters of Social Work, MSW, from Hunter College in June of 2016. I started working at RevCore in 2009 as a group facilitator and I am currently the Clinical Director, managing a staff of over 50 incredible, like-minded and hard-working individuals. I am available to answer any questions you may have- please reach out to me at
