HOW WE HELP

ABOUT THE HERREN PROJECT

The Herren Project (THP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by former professional basketball player and recovery advocate, Chris Herren, to serve individuals and families impacted by substance use disorder and the disease of addiction throughout the United States.

WHY WE STARTED

Chris Herren’s story and his redemptive rise from the depths of addiction were captured through the publication of the book, Basketball Junkie and the release of the ESPN Films documentary, Unguarded. As a result, Chris Herren has received thousands of e-mails and calls from others facing the devastating impact of the disease of addiction. The Herren Project was formed in 2011 to answer those calls; provide recovery navigation, family support resources and educational initiatives with the goal of reaching one person, one family at a time.
