WHAT IS FREDERICK COUNTY GOES PURPLE ?
A grassroots call to action to unify our Frederick County community to reduce substance-related deaths and overdoses. This massive community-wide observance will take place during National Recovery Month in September and throughout the year, demonstrating that Frederick County supports those in active addiction, recovery, and their loved ones; offers hope and resources; and invests in the future of its youth through prevention education.
WHY PURPLE ?
National Recovery Month in September is associated with the color purple. The entire community is encouraged to “go purple” to bring awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders, and to celebrate those living in recovery.
Decorate and Dress in Purple: Light bulbs, t-shirts, banners, shoelaces. Share pictures on social media of your group in purple.
Schedule opioid and addiction training for your organization.
