Former NBA player Chris Herren has used his past experience with drug abuse to positively affect the lives of others. On Wednesday, November 5 he spoke in front of a capacity crowd at Prairie Ridge High School in Crystal Lake, Illinois about the 14 years he spent in the dark wrestling with the demons of substance abuse, and how a support system of those who showed him continuous love helped lead him back to the light so that he could make the decision to save his own life.
“It was an extremely inspirational message,” said Korin Peters, another recovering addict in attendance at the event. “It’s amazing to see where he came from and where he is today. I think this is the exact thing that can slowly but surely help this real problem.”
After speaking at Prairie Ridge he went on to speak at Crystal Lake South later in the day. According to Herren the speech at Crystal Lake South were two of the most intense hours he’s gone through since starting to speak to crowds. He closed out his visit to Crystal Lake with another speech at Crystal Lake Central on Thursday, November 6.
