Gary Evan Hendler, a Philadelphia native, has been in successful recovery from a drug and alcohol addiction for over 39 years.
Having spent most of his teenage and young adult years in the music industry in Philadelphia, Gary grew up in the “fast lane” and paid a very heavy price for it by living a life of substance abuse before getting clean and sober in 1982, He has been a mainstay fixture in the recovery community in the Philadelphia area ever since.
Gary started one of the first AA meetings in a synagogue in the country, 37 years ago. He enjoys speaking to many different organizations on the subject of addiction and recovery.
30 years ago, Gary became a Pennsylvania Real Estate Broker and started his own real estate company that is still in operation.
As if running a successful real estate company as well as hosting the “Clean and Sober” radio show on WWDB-AM in Philadelphia and three south Florida radio stations were not enough, Gary was appointed by Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Wolf, to serve as a board member on the Pennsylvania Department of Drugs and Alcohol Advisory Council from 2015-2018
That appointment put Gary in an ideal position to monitor the work being done in the “Commonwealth” and to educate and inform the people of Pennsylvania on the issues surrounding drug and alcohol abuse and treatment.
Gary currently sits on the Pennsylvania Recovery Organization Alliance Board, The Montgomery County Drug Addiction Resource Alliance (DARA) and is an advisor to the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Drugs and Alcohol.
Gary is still involved with several alumni groups of the Philadelphia music industry and most recently was awarded a mention on a Philadelphia Music Alliance “Walk of Fame” plaque located on South Broad Street in Philadelphia. He is married with two daughters.
