Type of Event:
Going from shooting free throws to shooting heroin, Chris Herren knows all about addiction. His inspiring story of recovery will be featured at this year's Recovery Month kickoff luncheon, hosted by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals.
Recovery Month, held every September, spreads the positive message that prevention, treatment and recovery for mental and substance use disorders is available and that recovery in all its forms is possible. NAADAC is pleased to welcome Chris Herren as this
year's kickoff keynote speaker. A basketball legend from Fall River, Mass., Herren realized his dreams by playing for the Celtics in the NBA, only to lose it all to addiction before rising again with a new dream. A standout high school player, he played for
legendary coach Jerry Tarkanian at California State University, Fresno. At Fresno State he held school records in both assists and steals. He ultimately was drafted by the Denver Nuggets and later played for the Boston Celtics. Herren’s basketball success
concealed a darker side, and his dream soon became a nightmare of addiction – first alcohol, then cocaine and finally heroin. After extensive rehabilitation stays

Chris Herron, H. Wesley Clark, Administrator Pamela Hyde
