David Berner – Founder & Broadcaster
David Berner is a broadcaster, actor, writer, teacher, and addictions expert.
Mr. Berner was the Founder of Canada’s first Residential Treatment Centre for drug addicts and alcoholics. The program thrives 45 years later and sends hundreds of people each year back into the community as clean and sober citizens.
In the late 1970’s, Mr. Berner shifted his energies to Show Business, where he has compiled a 5-page resume of performances in radio, television, stage and film.
He was a Province Newspaper columnist and he has just published his first book, All the Way Home, chronicling the history and theory of his addictions work.
Audiences best know him as an enormously popular Talk Show Host on CKNW Radio. These days you can see him four times a week on his public affairs show on SHAW COMMUNITY TV, CABLE 4.
He runs therapy groups at The Orchard Recovery Centre and he is the Executive Director of The Drug Prevention Network of Canada.
The Pacific Club is pleased to present David Berner as our guest speaker on Wednesday, March 13, 2013.
