Jerry Spates, Clinician Assistant

Jerry has a long standing dedication to the recovery process. He brings his knowledge and experience to the program at Summit and goes out of his way to inspire the clients and help them realize life outside of mind altering substances. He enjoys going on adventures of all kinds with clients but leads an in house meeting that clients speak of long after they graduate from Summit. How he relates to clients is unmatched and nothing says more than a staff member who will go out of their way to make a client feel heard and safe. Jerry brings an energy to recovery without a forceful and aggressive manner.  He lives locally and has an amazing wife who he is proud to say has walked this journey with him for more than two decades.
