Years of Experience
About David Gates
David Allen Gates has over 20 years of experience managing and directing nationally recognized behavioral healthcare treatment centers and various other addiction treatment organizations. David’s expertise ranges from patient advocacy to successful intervention work. He has repeatedly guided family members to be agents of change for their loved one who is suffering from alcohol and drug problems. David has worked with some of the most talented and respected intervention professionals and American addiction centers throughout his career, such as Ken Seeley from the A & E show ‘Intervention’ and Kristina Wandzilak from the TLC show ‘Addicted’.
David has both the clinical and managerial experience in behavioral healthcare to effectively and ethically guide you to the appropriate clinical treatment program for your family.
Furthermore, David has successfully performed over 500 interventions during his career. He specializes in complex interventions that require a higher level of urgency and the ability to locate the person struggling with addiction in order for the intervention process to begin.
Sadly, many families have lost track of their loved one’s location due to alcohol and drug addiction or mental health issues. This prevents an actual intervention from ever even being able to happen for a family and their loved one who is battling substance use.
David fervently believes that addiction and mental health issues eventually separate loved ones from their families and push the person struggling with substance abuse into either extreme isolation or into the arms of strangers who will not encourage them to seek treatment.
David is married to his beautiful wife Allison Gates of 16 years, and they live with their 9-year-old son Jack in Aliso Viejo, California.
David enjoys barbequing and creating dinner parties for his friends and family. He loves going river and stream fishing in the Eastern Sierras with his son Jack. He also appreciates a great round of golf when his wife allows him to do so.
