Troy Police Department Launches “Hope Not Handcuffs” - a Families Against Narcotics’ Addiction Recovery Initiative
Anyone seeking help in the fight of drug or alcohol addiction may come to the Troy Police Department 24/7 365 and ask for the Hope Not Handcuff program. They will be treated with compassion and respect. A call will be made to an “Angel” volunteer from the Hope Not Handcuff staff who will actively seek out an individually tailored treatment plan. Individuals suffering from addiction will instantly gain an advocate and a network of resources designed to lead them to success. Hope Not Handcuffs is a proactive approach to reach out to people struggling with drug addiction to encourage them to seek recovery and regain control of their lives.
Hope Not Handcuffs is an initiative started by Families Against Narcotics (FAN), aimed at bringing law enforcement, community organizations and volunteers together to find viable treatment options for individuals seeking help to reduce dependency with any substance including heroin, prescription drugs, and alcohol.
Since its inception, HNH has expanded to include over 40 police departments in five counties and has successfully connected more than 900 participants with the resources and treatment they need and deserve. Learn more at
