What is the program?
The Mo Network Angel Initiative is our program modeled after The Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative which was started in Gloucester, Massachusetts by their Chief of Police, Leonard Campanello. The program brings the community together with the assistance of law enforcement, treatment providers, and community activists to treat addiction as it truly is, a health issue that requires treatment and not jail.
This program is the first of its kind in the area and is the joint effort of The Missouri Network for Opiate Reform and Recovery, Madison County Illinois, Preferred Family Healthcare, Gateway Foundation, Chestnut Healthcare Systems, and Waters Edge Recovery. All of these agencies will work together to ensure that someone struggling with addiction gets the treatment they need.
