The Litchfield Prevention Council
Announces Launch of THP Project Purple Anti-Substance Abuse Campaign

Schools and community groups across the United States will be “Going Purple” January 26- 30, 2015 to support The Herren Project’s initiative, Project Purple, a national anti-substance abuse awareness program.  Additionally, for 2015, The Herren Project (THP) has teamed with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to launch the THP Project Purple initiative in conjunction with Drug Facts Week which will kick off on Monday, January 26 and run through
February 1, 2015.

Project Purple is an initiative of The Herren Project, a non-profit foundation established by Chris Herren, former NBA basketball player, motivational speaker, author and sobriety advocate, that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction through treatment navigation, education and mentoring.  The goals of the Project Purple initiative are to create awareness and educate the public on the epidemic of substance abuse while encouraging teens and people of all ages to make positive decisions and to stand up to drugs and alcohol.

In December of 2014, Chris Herren visited Litchfield and made two powerful presentations; one to the high school students and another to the community at large. His message about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, the importance of placing value in ourselves, and being good decision-makers was moving for those who attended. A group of students at Litchfield High School have formed their own Project Purple group. During the week of January 26-30, Litchfield High School will join the ranks of schools across the nation that "Go Purple". By wearing purple these students will encourage others to join with them in displaying their commitment to building self-esteem, supporting individuality, promoting better decision-making and fostering self-confidence. They will "Go Purple" during the Varsity Boys' Basketball Game with Gilbert on Tuesday, January 27th at 7pm, where they plan to celebrate with teams and spectators. All who attend are encouraged to wear purple to show their support for the Project Purple initiative.

Join The Herren Project and the Litchfield Prevention Council as we stand up and “Go Purple”, showing support for the fight against substance abuse.  We cordially invite all to display items of the color purple during January in our homes, businesses and establishments. Purple lights, ribbons or banners would be great! The Litchfield Prevention Council has these items, please contact us on our webpage to arrange delivery. Together we can make a difference, celebrating life and supporting one another.
