More about the film:


Chris Herren had a successful career as a professional basketball player before losing it all to the disease of addiction. In The First Day, Herren reveals his story of vulnerability and addiction. “The focus oftentimes is about the worst day when it comes to speaking about addiction and not the first day,” Herren says in the film. “Kids need to understand how this begins rather than how it ends. Prevention starts on the first day.”

The First Day invites open dialogue about substance use and addiction. It offers the opportunity to deepen our understanding and sense of compassion for individuals struggling with substance use disorder.
