COVID hasn't stopped us and has increased demand for treatment and support. Join us to help those who need it now more than ever!

For those uncomfortable meeting someone in the police department, we can still help people over the phone, and we need angels to assist with those calls.
Launched in February of 2017, Hope Not Handcuffs brings law enforcement and community organizations together in an effort to find viable treatment options for individuals seeking help to reduce their dependency on prescription drugs, heroin, and alcohol. The concept is simple: Any person who is fighting any kind of addiction can go to
any participating police agency and ask for help. They will be greeted with support, compassion, and respect, and one of FAN’s trained “Angels” will guide them through a brief intake process and help them get the treatment they need. Since its inception, the Hope Not Handcuffs initiative has helped place more than 5,000 individuals into treatment, giving them a legitimate chance at finding recovery. Hope and Healing is a newer, hospital-based version of Hope Not Handcuffs. It allows people admitted to the hospital or ER due to an overdose the opportunity to seek help, by either calling an 800 number or filling out an online assessment.
