Former NBA Player Chris Herren Speaks at USD on Overcoming Addiction
The Coalition of Addiction Students and Professionals (CASPPA) is sponsoring “Rebound: The Chris Herren Story,” 6-9 p.m., Monday, Nov. 2, at Aalfs Auditorium in Slagle Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Herren was an All-American from Fall River, Massachusetts, who was recruited by top colleges and the focus of the book Fall River Dreams. He was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and traded to the Celtics after his rookie season. Herron, who has been free of alcohol and drugs since 2008, founded The Herren Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing treatment navigation, educational and mentoring programs to those touched by addiction and to educate people of all ages on the dangers of substance abuse. He shares his story in his memoir Basketball Junkie and in the ESPN Films documentary Unguarded.
