What’s Happening Today – October 5, 2021
Today on DelmarvaLife – DelmarvaLife Goes Purple
We’re sharing the stories of heartbreak and hope, and we’re trying to really understand the mindset of those who find themselves in addiction’s grip.
We meet Ricky Hess, a father in recovery who will tell you, it’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
Any person’s recovery can get quite a boost, thanks to the many resources available on Delmarva. One of the major players is the Sussex County Health Coalition. We learn more about their mission.
Deputy Chief with the Seaford Police Department, Sgt. Michael Rapa tells us about the Three Prong Diversion Program.
Another life-changing resource comes in the form of an app. The Marigold app connects people with the support they might need to keep fighting. We learn how it works.
We talk with Christina Bowie-Simpson, Opioid Coordinator for Wicomico County Health Department, about community efforts to bring awareness to addiction and educate community members.
Another champion in the purple project is Sun Behavioral Health. We learn about the team that has joined the fight against substance abuse and addiction.
