Herren’s career was endangered long before becoming a professional, leading him to be dismissed from Boston College as a Freshman for failing numerous drug tests. Herren’s drug experiences included runs with prescription medication, cocaine, crystal meth, and heroin, leading to seven drug-related felony arrests and a near-fatal overdose that left him clinically dead for 30 minutes.

“I can certainly empathize with Herren’s effort to draw a positive perspective from his history with addiction.” Added Prentiss, “My own experience with drug addiction is what helped me cofound Passages addiction treatment center and offer a fresh start to those who are in need of an alternative approach to healing the underlying issues that drive addictive behavior.”

The horizon appears to have cleared for Herren who now devotes his energy to more productive, service-oriented efforts, including his recently launched nonprofit The Herren Project.
