Scott and Shaaren share their story of how alcohol and drugs almost tore them apart in their best selling book entitled,"Torn Together." What they have gone through is no stranger to the restaurant industry. Young people are becoming more and more intoxicated and high due to the easy accessibility of alcohol and drugs in the industry. Scott and Shaaren tell of their recovery and what they are doing about helping others who are in the process of going through the same thing as they did. Scott has since started a non-profit network for restaurant workers called, "Restaurant Recovery". The mission of "Restaurant Recovery" is to provide comprehensive solutions to address addiction and its effects on restaurant employees, their families and the restaurant industry. Helping restaurant workers find and pay for drug and alcohol treatment, while helping loved ones get the assistance they need is what they do. Definitely an episode you will not want to miss!
