Ensuring the holistic well-being and safety of workers both within and beyond the workplace is paramount for achieving optimal mental health and performance. One of the fundamental approaches we employ to address mental health concerns is through group sessions, which serve as a foundational platform for conducting mental health check-ups and fostering open discussions regarding the use of prescribed and illicit substances in both professional and personal settings. Additionally, these sessions shed light on other lifestyle addictions, their underlying causes, effects, consequences, and, most importantly, prevention and harm minimisation strategies.

Despite the significance of these issues, there exists a certain level of denial and stigma surrounding substance abuse that inhibits some individuals from seeking help or acknowledging their struggles openly, particularly in the workplace environment. To address this, we recognise the importance of providing gentle encouragement, support, and accurate information to those who may require a nudge to confront and address their challenges.

Leveraging Ron’s extensive 42 years of experience in recovery, including 37 years of freedom from all substances, he possesses the ideal credentials to deliver the necessary insights from a personal perspective, fostering a casual and non-intimidating environment, free from pressure and complex terminologies.

Ron’s philosophy: “You don’t have a drinking problem, you have a thinking problem.


The perception of heroes among many young individuals is often uncertain and influenced by misinformation from the media and their social circles. Material things such as fast cars, expensive jewellery, and flashy clothes… do not define a person. On the contrary, possessing a compassionate and kind heart is a strength, not a weakness. Ron’s life story is a testament to this, as he has endured a profoundly challenging and traumatic upbringing. Despite his troubled past, Ron has not only overcome adversity but has also dedicated himself to helping numerous individuals throughout his journey. Leveraging his personal experiences, he seeks to impart valuable insights to the younger generation in an authentic and relatable manner.

Address the problems, identify the underlying causes, strategise effective solutions and take action to improve one’s life.

By adopting such an approach, we can empower young people to discover their purpose, cultivate healthier relationships with those around them, attain improved educational outcomes and successfully transition into adulthood.
