Recovery Dorm

His name is Ben and he's a campus drunk trying to stay sober amid a lot of chances to party.

The 19-year-old, sticking with his first name in the style of Alcoholics Anonymous, knows how to party. He learned to drink in the fifth grade in Cleveland. By high school he was drinking at least three nights a week, sometimes having 20 drinks of beer, gin and tequila.

Now in college, Ben is trying to stay away from booze and Case Western is doing its part by offering him a spot at a "recovery dorm."
