Our Programs

Counseling services at Wellspring RetreatWellspring prides itself in providing unique, professional programs that provide counseling and care specifically designed to aid victims of coercion, exploitation, and abuse in their return to emotional and psychological health. Most of the members of the licensed Wellspring treatment staff have themselves been involved in an abusive group or controlling relationship and thus share a special empathy and understanding with every client.

In each of our programs, credentialed and specially trained counselors provide daily, one-on-one counseling for each client. The sessions help clients work through the pain, questions, and confusion with which they are struggling.

Clients also attend workshops each weekday which are led by our specially trained staff members, and cult experts. These sessions help clients better understand and accurately process the trauma they have suffered. Workshop offerings include Thought Reform Dynamics, Healthy Relationships, Stress Management, Art and Music, Assertiveness, Trauma Recovery, Issues with Eating Disorders, and others.

The core program can by supplemented by the client using Wellspring's extensive library of books, tapes, and videos as well as our archive of news articles and other materials.

We work with our clients to provide services that fit their schedule and budget.
