Lakeview Health hosts discussion on Impact of Addiction on Men

Jacksonville, Fla., May 17, 2017 – Lakeview Health will be hosting a former college football star and former NFL player for a discussion on masculinity and addiction. Steve Herndon, president and co-founder of Safety Net Recovery, will share his personal story of addiction and recovery and will lead the discussion on the barriers between masculinity, addiction and recovery. The lecture is open to the public and will take place on May 26, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Lakeview Health’s conference center at 1900 Corporate Square Blvd.

“Stories, like Steve’s, are all too common because of the pressures that society puts on men to act and feel a certain way,” said Dr. Philip Hemphill, chief clinical officer at Lakeview Health. “This lecture will help participants learn more about the roadblocks men face and the basic core values to help those suffering from addiction find their way to long-term recovery.”

Herndon was a star at the University of Georgia and played in the NFL with the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons. When he failed a mandatory NFL drug test, he initially refused treatment, but then a friend’s entry into rehab inspired him to get help for his addiction. Now 10 years sober, Herndon is a level II certified addiction counselor and certified clinical supervisor. He co-founded Safety Net Recovery, a structured sober living community for men, with a partner he met in treatment. Herndon’s own struggle to achieve and maintain his recovery influences his work at Safety Net Recovery.

The Impact of Addiction on Men and Overcoming the Road Blocks to Recovery is part of Lakeview Health’s monthly lecture series. Each month, Lakeview Health hosts a speaker to discuss issues related to addiction and recovery. To register for the upcoming lecture, visit
