Toren Volkmann spent his college years like many young people--going to class, doing just enough homework to get by but in his case also getting blind drunk every weekend. A year after graduation, he had a Peace Corps assignment in South America and a worsening drinking problem. His parents had no idea about the problem, until he called them from a rehab facility. Volkmann and his mother Chris tell their family's recovery story in their book From Binge to Blackout. They're in northeast Ohio this week, and they join us Tuesday morning at 9 for some important lessons about parenting.
