The Vancouver Heathman
Lunch at noon, presentation to follow
In December of 2006, Tara made headlines when she tested positive for cocaine. Her employers at the time, Donald Trump and the Miss Universe Organization, sent Conner to the Caron Treatment Center where she completed 30 days of treatment.
After her very public struggle with addiction, Tara became a Public Advocacy Consultant for the Caron Treatment Centers. She has shared her experience with audiences all over the United States, and hopes to raise awareness that addiction is a disease, and that many people who have struggled with this disease can go on to lead healthy, productive lives in recovery. She also wants educators, families, and professionals to know that sobriety at an early age is achievable, and that it greatly enhances life’s possibilities.
