Delaware Goes Purple in October
Delaware Goes Purple: Together We Can Stand Up Against Substance Abuse
October 19, 2021

UWDE Team

This Month We’re Going Purple

The entire First State is going purple. Delaware Goes Purple is a monthlong program to raise awareness of substance abuse and involve our community and youth to stand up against substance abuse. Join us.

Nearly every day, someone in Delaware loses the battle against heroin, prescription painkillers, or other addictive drugs. Teens and adults need to talk about substance use and understand the risks and consequences.

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

Join us on social media to share information and education about substance use, stigma, and addiction.
