Clayton Mallette (Co Founder, Canada)
Kembali Owner and Co-Founder, Clayton Mallette, has had years of practical experience working at a drug and alcohol rehab. Clayton studied Substance Abuse Counseling at Okanagan College in British Columbia where he began to design a course created to discover root causes behind addictions and to learn how to connect with others and our own emotions in a safe and healthy way. He also learned to develop counseling skills as they pertain to motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Clayton believes people with addictions are uniquely talented individuals that can make a profound impact on the world once in recovery. Clayton believes one of the most important areas of recovery is finding how to have fun again and loves to take clients on guided tours of the Island every Sunday to some of his favorite locations. Having experienced firsthand the benefits of recovery and the isolation of addiction, he’s always had a desire to work with others on a similar journey. This is what ultimately led him to found Kembali Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center.
Debby Berry (Co Founder, Canada)
With 30 plus years in the educational field, working with others in a nurturing capacity comes second nature to Kembali Co-Founder, Debby Berry. As a recovering addict herself, Debby studied Substance Use Counseling at Okanagan College in British Columbia where she learned about theories of substance use, current trends in addiction, harm reduction, and strategies including relapse prevention and the implementation of wellness plans. She also learned how to develop counseling skills as they pertain to motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Debby also spent 10 years working at a personal development company where she’s facilitated over 120 Connections workshops, many alongside her son, Clayton. Connections workshops are owned by Terry Lige who runs Inside Out Leadership Development Group. She’s had extensive training under Lige, and his transformative workshops will be incorporated into Kembali Recovery Center’s 28-day program. Debby stands firm in her belief that people with drug and alcohol addictions are true game changers — a uniquely talented bunch that, once in recovery, can make a profound impact on the world. It all starts with that first step onto the sobriety path — one that begins at Kembali.
