Below is the Klerksdorp wave November 2015.
Anthony has experienced both sides of the law, having arrested substance abusers in the past, to becoming an alcoholic /addict, and now devotes his time to helping people who struggle with addiction.
The House of Davnik has been established to assist those in recovery from addiction/alcoholism in a safe environment, and Anthony stays permanently on the sober farm, unless travelling to give talks.
In his motivational talks Anthony relates his life story to educate the youth, as well as parents, to remove the stigma attached to addiction.
Davnik is named in memory of David Dowlman and Nikki Wilkinson, close family and friend, who both died untimely deaths in their early years, due to substance abuse.
