All the Way Home by David Berner
Read The Vancouver Sun‘s rave review of All the Way Home
With a distinguished broadcasting and entertainment career on his resume, it would have been an expected course of action for David Berner to pen a memoir about his achievements in journalism and acting. Then again, David Berner has never been one to follow the rules of expectations.
Instead, he returned to his professional roots in addictions treatment to write a book that he felt was communicative rather than cheeky and necessary rather than complementary. As the founder of the X-Kalay Foundation – one of the most successful treatment programs of its kind – David Berner used his own experiences as a starting point towards tackling an issue that affects countless lives and communicating a call to action for the status quo to change.
The result is All the Way Home.
Building recovery that works.
All the Way Home is a candid and timely exploration of drug rehabilitation programs. It’s an unflinching look at the flawed logic of the modern harm reduction model, the principles of the groundbreaking X-Kalay philosophy and how they still apply today – all told with raw honesty, inspiring emotion, and the welcome touches of grace and warmth that admirers of David Berner’s writing have long welcomed.
