Ronnie Aaronson is a psychotherapist specialising in the treatment of addiction, focusing particularly on alcoholism. She is the author of Addiction, This Being Human, a book she was inspired to write by societies dehumanisation and 'othering' of people struggling with certain 'unacceptable' addictions.
Ronnie is also a founder of The Swan Project, a charity set up in Bristol to help people struggling with alcoholism. The charity utilises the skills of trainee therapists to provide low cost treatment to an incredible number of people. What makes this model particularly fascinating is that it's replicable anywhere.
