- Outspoken advocate for addiction
Tara Conner is a Public Advocacy s Consultant for Caron Treatment Centers. In her role, she shares her experience, strength and hope with audiences throughout the United States, as she reveals the story of her struggle with addiction and most importantly, the life in recovery she has today.
Conner was crowned Miss USA in 2006. During December of that year, she 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 went on to complete 30 days of treatment. She recently celebrated five years of sobriety.
Through her work, she 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 especially wants educators, families and professionals to know that sobriety at an early age is achievable and that it greatly enhances life’s possibilities.
Though her darkest moments have not been revealed to the media, Conner shares...
"Tara Conner's honest and sensitive articulation of her story opens the way for her audiences to understand that addiction is a destructive disease that runs in families, but also demonstrates that individuals and families can and do recover, heal and lead satisfying and generous lives. Tara is a beautiful and compelling presenter and a caring and generous supporter of other young people seeking recovery."
Sis Wenger, Past President & CEO of National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA)
