As most of his followers know, Dr. George transitioned on June 21, 2015
and, while we are happy he is at peace, the world has lost one of its
great servants. He saved so many lives as an interventionist and helped
so many Friends of Bill stay on their path to health realization.
Awarded the Gratitude Award for Lifetime Achievement in mental health
and substance abuse treatment in the community by Sierra Tucson
Treatment Center, and as founder of the Alpha Treatment Program at
Glendale Memorial Hospital, Dr. Patterson has been recognized for his
contributions in the areas of intervention and dependency counseling by
the President of the United States, Governor of California, Senators
Feinstein and Boxer, Congressman Adam Schiff, the County of Los
Angeles, and the Mayor of the City of Glendale, California.
Anyone who encountered "Dr. George" was truly blessed. He was
definitely our Creator's gift to us all. An avid catch and release fly
fisherman, fish all around the world will breath a sigh of relief this
day. 'Bye for now, my dear George, we know you will have all the folks
in Heaven in stitches with your jokes.
