The MSP Angel Program allows an individual struggling with drug addiction to walk into a MSP post during regular business hours and ask for assistance. If accepted into the MSP Angel Program, the individual will be guided through a professional substance abuse assessment and intake process to ensure proper treatment placement. An "Angel" volunteer, who is a member of the local community, will be present to support the individual during the process, and to provide transportation to the identified treatment facility. All MSP posts are currently participating in the Angel Program.

In the event of an opioid overdose, there is a drug that can be used that can reverse the effects of the opioid. Naloxone (commonly known by the brand names Narcan and Evzio) is a life-saving medication used to reverse the effect of an opioid overdose. Naloxone is not addictive. Payment for the medication Naloxone is covered by Medicaid and many other insurances. Many non-profit organizations also distribute Naloxone.
