  Tara Conner is an American beauty queen, model, television personality and recovery advocate.  She hopes that by sharing her story she can begin to break the stigma attached to addiction and create an understanding that it can happen to anyone regardless of their background.

“It is so important to understand that addiction is a family disease. I experienced this firsthand

within my own family.  But I have also learned that through treatment and recovery you can

break the cycle.”    Tara Conner, Miss USA 2006

We hope to raise awareness that addiction is a disease and that many people go on to lead a healthy,

happy life in recovery.

“Youth who start drinking before age 15 years are five times more likely to develop alcohol dependence later

in life than those who begin drinking at or after age 21 years.” CDC Factsheet Dated Jan 2014

Built on the proven foundation of the Palmer Drug Abuse Program (PDAP), Rise Recovery offers an expanded suite of services to meet the needs of the entire family through four core programs that include the Palmer Drug Abuse Program (PDAP) Rise Education and Prevention, Rise Early Intervention and Rise Youth Leadership.

In addition to direct recovery services, Rise Recovery offers awareness presentations, youth empowerment training and community outreach to help prevent substance use.
