Orchard Recovery Center and Bowen Island got a very heartfelt shoutout on April 19th’s episode of the Armchair Expert Podcast with Dax Shepard, a podcast that celebrates the messiness of being human. Dax and Macklemore open up about their journeys with sobriety and Mackelmore explains how fame fueled his addictions.
Starting at the 35 minute mark, Macklemore talks about how it was after leaving the Orchard that he was able to make his chart-topping platinum album The Heist.
M: “I got clean in 2008. Went to rehab for the first time.”
D: “Where’d you go?”
M: “A place called the Orchard, on Bowen Island – actually in Canada. Shoutout to the Friends of the Orchard up there in Canada, our Northern neighbours! Amazing experience. All of the things that rehab should be.”
