Zac Clark ’06 didn’t see his use of drugs and alcohol as addiction. “It was part of my identity,” he says. “I was a young guy. I liked to go to sporting events. I liked to have a good time. No one knew it was a problem until it was a problem.” Clark, now 36, runs addiction recovery centers in New York. He returned to his home in Manhattan recently with a whirlwind of newfound celebrity after becoming engaged to Tayshia Adams on the 16th season of The Bachelorette.
