What Is It?

Hope Not Handcuffs is an initiative started by Michigan based Families Against Narcotics (FAN), aimed at bringing law enforcement and community organizations together in an effort to find viable treatment options for individuals seeking help to reduce dependency with heroin, prescription drugs, and alcohol. It is a solution.


How It Works

A person struggling with any drug addiction can come to any of the participating police agencies and ask for help. They will be greeted with support, compassion, and respect. If accepted into the program*, the individual will be guided through a brief intake process to ensure proper treatment placement.
If a person is uninsured or has Medicaid, we will work directly with the local Office of Substance Abuse Services for placement. If a person has private insurance, we will provide them with treatment options covered by their plan. Regardless, our team will work to get them into treatment as soon as possible. We have more than 600 volunteer Angels, and one of them will help with paperwork and provide compassionate support until a treatment option is found.

*Exceptions that may make someone ineligible for the program: a felony or domestic violence warrant; danger to others; under 18 without parent or guardian consent; medical condition that may need hospitalization. 


If you do not feel comfortable going into one of our participating police departments, don't worry. We still want to help you! You can fill out our online assessment form and an Angel will contact you as soon as possible.
