Delaware Goes Purple Campaign

 

This month we’re going purple! In fact, the whole State is. Delaware Goes Purple is a monthlong program to bring awareness to substance abuse to engage our community and youth to stand up against substance abuse. We invite you to join the movement with us.

Nearly every day, someone in Delaware loses their battle with heroin, prescription painkillers, or other addictive drugs. Teens need to know about the risks and consequences. And they need to hear it from us.

Did you know that one of the greatest challenges for people seeking help from addiction is the stigma surrounding their addiction? Those struggling should know that their disease is not one that they should be ashamed of, or keep hidden. Delaware Goes Purple empowers the community to stand up to erase the stigma and  to support individuals who need it the most.

So this month, we will be sharing more on social media about substance abuse and resources available for those who are struggling. We hope you will follow along. In addition, there are several things you can participate:

The purpose of the project is to promote the “new conversation” —one that includes prescription drugs. We are grateful for your support of this project. We know that if this project empowers but one individual to seek the help they need -- it will be worth it.

Thank you in advance for your support
