September has been proclaimed "Recovery Month" in the Province of Saskatchewan and in honour of that, we're going to have a series of special Recovery interviews here on the podcast.

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

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:
