The Michigan State Police post in Gaylord will be the first in the state that helps with overcoming addiction.

'Angel Volunteers' is a new program set to kick off at the Michigan State Police post in Gaylord and is aimed at helping those addicted to drugs and / or alcohol.

State Troopers in Michigan have now joined 200 police departments across the nation with the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative. The program called 'Angel Volunteers' was put together to help those in the community who battle addiction and have a place to come in and ask for assistance and treatment options. The 'Angel Volunteers' then reach out to contacts and programs that will help those in need the most.

If you are interested in learning more about the 'Angel Volunteer' program or becoming a volunteer contact the Michigan State Police Gaylord Post at (989) 732-2778.
