Meet Our Team
Founder and CEO
David entered his first treatment center at the ripe young age of 17 for cocaine, alcohol, and pills. That was the first of many attempts to recover but unfortunately it took him another 10 years burning through relationships, jobs, money and countless opportunities before finally surrendering and truly asked for help from a deep place within. For 7 years, David has been on a full blown mission for his healing, recovery and discovering his true authentic self. He worked for Google for several years after treatment, a true testament that the promises of the program are real. He now owns BridgeWay Sober Living, working in his calling to help others heal and recover.
