SCRANTON -- Thousands of students in Lackawanna County got a chance to hear an important message from a former NBA player.

Chris Herren, who played for the Boston Celtics, was at the Scranton Cultural Center Friday to tell students about his addiction to drugs and alcohol.

The event was free and hosted by the Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund.

Erin's Fund was started in 2002 by her parents after Erin died from a drug overdose.
