Ron has lived in Greenfield, Massachusetts his whole life. For almost 30 years he has struggled with addiction and alcoholism.
While he was at Greenfield High School in the late 80’s, his long battle with substance abuse began when he tried alcohol for the first time at the age of 13.
In this interview, he describes how that one night shaped the next three decades of his life, and how he’s finally put himself on the path to recovery and
what he refers to as “spiritual fitness”.
