Herren was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and then traded to his hometown Boston Celtics a year later. After only one year with the Celtics, he started to abuse prescription painkillers. In 2004 he was in a near-fatal car accident while high on drugs. Herren has been drug-free since 2008 and has focused since then on sobriety and family. “The Chris Herren Story” is free and open to the public, and is being held tomorrow from 7 – 9 pm at the RCC Cultural Arts Theater. You do need to RSVP, just send an email to lifehaps@sunyrockland.edu.
