I have worked with young people for more than 20 years and have known some powerful truth-tellers. Chris is among the most powerful I have met. This is why I am proud that Center on Addiction is partnering with Chris to present his new documentary: The First Day.

We have partnered with Chris Herren and the Herren Talks on the new film, The First Day. Presented by Center on Addiction and Cigna, the film takes an innovative approach to addressing teen substance use, while helping refocus the conversation around addiction from the last day to the first. In addition to speaking directly to teens, the film empowers parents, educators and community members to share information, provide support and identify resources to foster healthy life decisions.

Parents of adolescents can play a valuable role in protecting their teens from substance use, a new national survey by Center on Addiction finds.
