It was great to spread the word of Recovery, raise awareness about the Addiction battle, and celebrate those who are winning the war against alcohol and drugs. Thanks to the Government of Saskatchewan and City of Regina for recognizing the importance of this movement.
Thanks also to all who attended and/or supported our Recovery Day Luncheon on September 19 featuring guest speaker Dr. Wendy Gore Hickman! For those new to the event, I know they were blown away.
That brings us to our next Recovery podcast guest.
Phil Andrews is the Voice of the WHL's Regina Pats and although just 29 years of age, he got into Recovery at the age of 18!
His road to Recovery has been a very rocky one and in this podcast interview, Phil bares all. It's not easy to do that, but it can certainly be therapeutic in a way. And although Phil isn't out beating the drum of sobriety or advertising his story, he's certainly not ashamed to tell his story if it'll help someone out.
True courage indeed.
Thanks to our Pedersen Recovery sponsors Fine Foods, Milk2Go Sport and C.J. Evans Home Designs for their continued support in bringing you this show each month!
Now, here's Phil Andrews with his Recovery story:
Sunday, September 16, 2018
Resch spent 14 seasons in the National Hockey League as a goaltender with the New York Islanders, Colorado Rockies, New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers. He also won a Stanley Cup while with New York.
These days, Chico is a broadcaster with the New Jersey Devils and also a key figure with Hockey Ministries International. While at the 2018 Memorial Cup in Regina, Chico and Florida Panthers goalie James Reimer spoke at the HMI Breakfast. At the soldout event, Resch shared his personal Faith story and also how he turned his life around by turning his back on alcohol.
This interview should be mandatory-listening for young athletes as well as their coaches, managers and parents as Chico and I discuss peer pressure within a locker room, and how easy it is to go down the wrong road like we did.
It's possible to turn your life around before it's too late.
Thanks to Pedersen Recovery sponsors Fine Foods, Milk2Go Sport and C.J. Evans Home Designs for their continued support of our efforts including this podcast, sober coaching, interventions, public speaking and sober events.

In addition, Wednesday, September 19 as been designated "Recovery Day" by the City of Regina and that's when we're holding our 6th annual Recovery Day Luncheon featuring guest speaker Dr. Wendy Gore-Hickman and me as the Master of Ceremonies. For tickets, email email@example.com.
Our first Recovery interview of September is with Dave Pavlus, the owner/operator of the Last Door Recovery Society for men in New Westminster, BC (27 km from downtown Vancouver).
Dave's Recovery story will knock your socks off, and is the first podcast interview in which I'll invoke a *LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER*. Dave P. goes hardcore, old school while telling his Recovery story and it's what you probably need to hear. I suppose I've become somewhat de-sensitized to this stuff but when I played the interview for my wife, she almost covered her ears. THIS IS REAL!
Obviously, if you're following this podcast, you must be affected by addictions in some way. Dave has seen the ugliness of Alcoholism and Addiction from all sides and gave me a fresh perspective on the topic.
Thanks to sponsors Fine Foods, Milk2Go Sport and CJ Evans Home Designs for their continued support of Pedersen Recovery. Their generousity makes all of the things possible that we do including this podcast, sober coaching, interventions, public speaking and sober events.
So, to kick off Recovery Month with a BANG, here is the Last Door's Dave Pavlus:
