Our next big event! The HPS Wellness Committee is excited to bring Chris Herren to Haverhill for a free presentation to Haverhill Public Schools students and families. Chris will speak about his road to recovery. This event will be held on Tuesday, May 2nd at Hunking School from 6-8pm. This is a powerful story that adolescents need to hear about- a Celtics NBA player from MA who has been in long term recovery since 2008. Chris inspires people to start the- conversation on wellness and educate themselves on the disease of addiction.
