Former NBA player Chris Herren has overdosed four times. He was found at the side of the road and taken to hospital. 30 days into his treatment he went home for the birth of his 3rd child. “I was home for about 8 hours and I went out and relapsed.” What his counsellor told him changed his life.

Watch the video below to find out what the counsellor said.

Chris has started ‘The Herren Project’ to help people take the first steps toward recovery. The non-profit organization does this by providing educational programs and resources.
