Governor’s Weekly Message: Increasing Funding Support to Address Addiction Epidemic

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, August 21, 2015



Wilmington – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses how state and federal funding will support ongoing efforts to address the addiction epidemic in Delaware.

“Earlier this month, I announced priorities for $4 million in new state resources to fight the addiction epidemic,” said Governor Markell. “This past week, I joined Director Michael Botticelli of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy for another announcement. Both announcements will provide support to Delawareans and their families impacted by addiction. We must convince people in the throes of this disease that treatment is available, that it works, and that they can recover – and that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
