DANCING with ADDICTIONS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS has invited me to speak next Tuesday evening at 7 P.M. at the Waterfall Building, 1540 West 2nd Avenue. Come join us.


 David Berner    Nov 5 2013

David Berner is the Executive Director of the Drug Prevention Network of Canada and runs addiction therapy groups at the Orchard Recovery Centre on Bowen Island, British Columbia and for VisionQuest Recovery Centres. An early pioneer in the field of residential treatment, David founded the X-Kalay Foundation Society in 1967, the first of its kind in Canada for addicts, alcoholics, ex-cons and others. David has recently chronicled his life and advocacy for addiction treatment in his wonderfully received book, All The Way Home. 
David is also an accomplished broadcaster, actor, journalist, social activist and teacher. Local audiences best know him for his many years as an enormously popular Radio Talk Show Host on CKNW Radio, and these days you can see him four times a week on his public affairs show on SHAW COMMUNITY TV, CABLE 4. David regularly contributes to many local and national newspapers and magazines.
