Former NBA point guard Chris Herren was a journeyman in his basketball career and has had quite the journey off the court as well. Though he struggled with drug and alcohol abuse he has since become a powerful and influential motivational speaker with the ability to adapt the lessons he’s learned in his own lie to those who may be struggling with the same issues.
On Sunday, November 16 Herren made an appearance at the Omni Dallas Hotel to provide the keynote speech for the 30th annual Chemical Awareness Resources & Education breakfast. Hearing Herren speak about the power that substance abuse had over his life during his basketball career had a great impact on many in the audience. After his speech he took the time to sign autographs and take pictures with those in attendance.
The event raised $220,000 to benefit the mission of CARE and it’s programs. With the funds raised it will allow the organization to continue their mission of informing the community of the risks of drug and alcohol use and abuse and to provide referrals to anyone struggling with addiction.
