Hope Not Handcuffs is a collaborative effort between Tri-County Community Partnership, law enforcement and other organizations to help those addicted to opiates and other substances. If a person comes to a designated police department seeking help, our team will work to get them into treatment as soon as possible. To make this program a success, we need over 50 “Angel” volunteers. Angels help with paperwork and provide compassionate support until a treatment option is found. Angel's can choose their own time slot by signing up to be on call for just 1 six-hour block per month, or whenever you like!
It is our goal to have Angels arrive at a participating police department within 20-30 minutes of call.
Now searching for Angels in the areas of Rockland County

Over 23.5 million Americans are currently living in recovery from addiction – and they have found multiple pathways to get well from alcohol and other drug problems. In order to help those still in the grips of active addiction, as well as the family members and other loved ones who spend endless hours trying to support and help them, it is imperative that the many pathways to recovery become more widely understood.
Facing Addiction with NCADD began working in early 2017 to develop a guide that highlights and outlines the many pathways to recovery, and that includes personal testimonials from individuals who have found recovery through in a variety of ways. You can download the guide by clicking here or on the document image on the right.
We hope this guide can serve as a tool to help the millions still suffering, as well as their loved ones.
