The Power of Prevention featuring Chris Herren

Join Recovery Resource Council for the Power of Prevention featuring Chris Herren, a former NBA player and subject of the Emmy-nominated ESPN documentary, Unguarded. This early evening event will be held at a private home Preston Hollow with a food truck providing dinner for a safe and casual evening with friends, promoting mental wellness and recovery in our community. The address will be provided when your ticket is purchased.
Herrin was an All-American basketball legend from Fall River, MA. who realized his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA when he was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and then traded to the Boston Celtics before losing his career to the disease of addiction. In long-term recovery since 2008, Herren inspires people to start the conversation on wellness and educate themselves on the disease of addiction.
The money raised through sponsorships, ticket sales and the silent auction at The Power of Prevention event supports a portion of The Council’s operating budget. Recovery Resource Council’s mission is to promote wellness and recovery from alcohol, substance use disorders, and trauma. Our psychotherapy, educational, and basic needs programs are focused on preventing morbidity from mental illness. Since merging with the Dallas Council on Drugs and Alcohol, Fort Worth based Recovery Resource Council, now serves 20 North Texas counties.
