Prevention Resource Fair

On Thursday, September 1, 2022, Chris Harren will share his story of substance abuse and recovery in the Knoxville First Seventh-Day Adventist Church Auditorium from 7:00-8:30 PM. A resource fair which is free and open to the public will take place from 6:00-7:00 in their gym. Refreshments will be provided at the fair. Pre-register for the event here. 

Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, was an All-American, broke scoring records and was recruited by the nation’s top colleges. Herren realized his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA when he was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and then traded to his hometown team, the Boston Celtics, before losing his career and almost his family to the disease of addiction. In long term recovery since 2008, Chris inspires people to start the conversation on wellness and educate themselves on the disease of addiction. It is his hope that strength will be found in the struggle and communities will come TOGETHER to address the issue of substance use disorder, advocate for effective treatment and embrace the power of recovery.

Celebrate Recovery North will join other recovery community leaders and ministries for the community recovery fair. The recovery fair is a great opportunities for us to share about our ministry, our church, and to build relationships with other community leaders. The recovery fair and the speaking event are free to the community and all are welcome to participate!
