This Just In… All the Way Home: Building Recovery That Works by David Berner

All the Way Home is about addictions and how to get past them.

The book is a personal memoir, a cultural history, an instructional manual and a polemic against all the enabling policies that have such unfortunate currency. It illustrates in dramatic and comic detail that the antidote to addictions is rigorous engagement of the whole person. An enormous Valentine to the millions of men, women and children who have recognized their addictions and moved on. It is also a swift kick in the rear to the countless politicians, mandarins and enablers who have never invested a single penny in treatment or an ounce of human energy in providing the hope and guidance that allows the afflicted to live as citizens.

“Everyone who cares about those who are suffering the hells of addiction or about public policy should go out and get this book,” says The Vancouver Sun, “as should anyone who values sentences that are well written, pungent and charged with conviction, passion and wit.”
