Submit your question to Chris Herren now.

Dear Joseph,

Inspirational, motivational, educational.

These are just a few words that could describe the amazing work by former professional basketball player and father Chris Herren, celebrating three and a half years in recovery from a drug and alcohol addiction.

The Partnership at is honored that Chris will host the next "Meet The Parents Hour" -- a live Facebook Q&A chat -- to talk about substance abuse recovery on Monday, April 16 at 12 p.m. EDT/9 a.m. PDT.

To make sure everyone has the chance to ask his or her question, submit yours in advance, and Chris will do his best to get to it during the session.

Submit your question to Chris Herren now.

Chris struggled with drug addiction for much of his basketball career and ultimately realized his dreams by playing for the Boston Celtics in the NBA, only to lose it all to substance abuse.

But since losing one dream, he has been able to rise again with a new one; a life of sobriety.

Drug- and alcohol-free since 2008, Chris now travels the country sharing his story and the experiences that led him to recovery with the hopes of reaching one person or assisting a family who may be facing a loved one's addiction. He also runs The Herren Project, a nonprofit foundation established in 2011 that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction.

Don't miss out on this special opportunity to chat live with Chris Herren and hear his story. Submit your questions now and then visit our Facebook timeline on April 16 to take part in the live chat:

We look forward to seeing you at our next "Meet The Parents Hour."

Thank you,

Tom Hedrick
