In 2016, the Michigan State Police (MSP) implemented the nationally renowned Angel program, aimed at bringing together law enforcement, community volunteers, and individuals seeking assistance to reduce dependency with drug and alcohol addiction (Substance Use Disorder (SUD)) in Michigan. The MSP Angel Program allows individuals struggling with a SUD to walk into a MSP post during regular business hours to ask for assistance. MSP Angel Program participants are guided through a professional substance abuse assessment and intake process to ensure proper placement into treatment. An “Angel” volunteer from the local community will respond to the post to support the individual during the intake process and to provide transportation to the appropriate treatment facility.
All MSP posts throughout the state are currently participating in the Angel Program.
