Dale Macintyre, M.Div., RCC. is intrigued by communication and the potential for growth that occurs when people relate meaningfully with one another. His exploration of the power of communication began with careers as a newspaper columnist and current affairs producer with CBC radio. Pursuing his interest in the social, face-to-face aspect of communication, Dale turned to counseling and after becoming a registered clinical counselor, ran a private practice as a marriage and family counselor. His interest in addiction and its effect on the family brought Dale to EDGEWOOD Treatment Center as an addictions counselor. He is currently the Supervisor of Family Programs at EDGEWOOD where he continues his work helping families develop healthy communication and coping skills as they begin healing from the devastating effects of addiction.
