Cara moved to Santa Clarita as a teenager, eventually meeting her husband Aaron through mutual friends. Shortly after their marriage, Cara discovered that the man she loved had struggled with various addictions throughout his life.
Aaron’s struggles with addiction really came to a head when he began experiencing back pain from a surgery and was prescribed opioid medication by his doctors.
Aaron quickly began to abuse various opioids as he needed more and more to meet the tolerance he developed. This led him to be banned from the hospital because of how frequently he would try to get more drugs.
After a while Cara and Aaron decided to divorce as Aaron’s addiction became too much to have around the kids. Cara shared, “I didn’t want [the kids] around the drugs and around daddy high all the time.”
