Sussex Goes Purple is a substance abuse awareness program designed to engage our community and youth to stand up against substance abuse. Sussex Goes Purple also includes implementing in-school Purple Clubs and prevention programs, including implementation of the BOTVIN program beginning in schools in Seaford, Delaware.
Sussex Goes Purple is an initiative from the Sussex County Health Coalition with the support of Highmark, DSAMH and several other community partners. The purpose of the project is to promote new and positive conversation around:
- Expanding access to care and treatment for those battling addiction
- Removing the stigma of addiction to allow for meaningful conversation
- Work to prevent future addictions in our community
