Is there a better way than AA? Reading and Discussion with Mike Pond in Vancouver

Event Details

Vancouver Public Library

Is there a better way than AA? Mike Pond thinks there is. Pond, a Vancouver psychotherapist, lost everything to alcoholism and ended up destitute in a rundown recovery home. The only treatment: AA, which Pond argues made his condition worse.

Pond’s new memoir The Couch of Willingness: an Alcoholic Therapist Battles the Bottle and a Broken Recovery System, makes the case for new evidence-based approaches that promise better outcomes.

Join us for an open discussion & book reading. Tuesday, June 17 at 7pm. Vancouver Public Library, 350 West Georgia Street. Free. All Welcome. Further info at
