Prevention Starts With All: The Chris Herren Story


Michigan Theater - Auditorium Wed, Mar 8, 2023 7:00 PM

Join us at Ann Arbor’s historic Michigan Theater to hear the unforgettable story of a former NBA athlete’s journey to sobriety. In this very personal presentation, Chris Herren will share his recovery story in a brutally honest format, with just a microphone. The event will start with a 5-minute film introducing Chris and showing highlights of his basketball career and his dream to play in the NBA. From growing up in Massachusetts to playing Division 1 basketball and in the NBA, he will take you on his journey from addiction to sobriety. He will also address the issues of gateway drugs, prescription drug use, vaping, and the responsibility of prevention starting with us all. The event will conclude with a community conversation.  Resources and Narcan will be available.  For more information please visit
