Houghton Lake Post Seeking “Angel” Volunteers

Houghton Lake – The Michigan State Police (MSP) Houghton Lake Post is seeking volunteers to assist with the Angel Program, which allows an individual struggling with addiction to walk into any post and ask for assistance without fear of arrest or investigation. 
Angel volunteers respond to assist MSP personnel in locating the appropriate treatment option and with transporting the participant to a treatment center. Volunteers are reimbursed for mileage and meal expenses.  Angels will be trained by MSP personnel on the responsibilities and expectations of being an Angel.  
 
The MSP Angel Program is supported by P.A.A.R.I. (the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative) and is modeled after a similar initiative developed in 2015 by the Gloucester, Massachusetts Police Department.   
 
The Houghton Lake Post will soon be conducting training for new volunteers. If you are interested in learning more about the MSP Angel program or becoming an “Angel” volunteer, please contact the Houghton Lake Post at 989-422-5101 or visit www.michigan.gov/AngelProgram.
