Chris Herren – Lafayette 2022 Speaker Series

Chris Herren—The Struggle with Addiction & Mental Illness

Chris Herren

Former NBA Player Chris Herren will share his poignant and brutally honest personal story at the Ross-Ade Stadium, Shively Club Pavilion in West Lafayette, IN on Thursday, October 20 as part of Meridian’s Community Health Speaker Series.

Chris was a celebrated star before graduating high school. He went on to play at Boston College, Fresno State, and in the NBA – including playing on his hometown team, the Boston Celtics – and seven seasons overseas before losing it all to the disease of addiction. His recovery journey has been documented in the bestselling memoir, “Basketball Junkie,” the Emmy-nominated ESPN Films documentary, “Unguarded” and in countless local, national and international stories by The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated.

Following Herren’s presentation, a panel comprised of community leaders and officials will discuss issues related to substance use, recovery, and ideas for local solutions.

A complimentary lunch will be provided by Meridian Health Services.

If you or someone you know is suffering from substance use or addiction, Meridian can help turn things around and provide a fresh start. Call 866-306-2647 to begin the journey to a new way of living.
