Former NBA player Chris Herren struggled with heroin and substance abuse for much of his basketball career. Drug and alcohol free since August 1, 2008, he has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else. One of the many things Chris does to support his substance-free lifestyle is to speak before groups trying to overcome addiction to share his experiences and road to sobriety.
Fox Communities was part of the committee who brought Chris to Appleton in October of 2015 so he could share his story with kids, adults, parents, teachers, students, coaches, players, etc. His message resonates with everyone.
Remember, there is always hope!
