Family Support Services

Family support services

We often get calls for help from those who have loved-ones in cults or entangled in abusive relationships. While Wellspring does not provide exit-counseling or interventions, we can offer support to help you navigate the process.

There are four easy steps to receiving Family Support Services:

  1. Step One – Contact Wellspring for a Family Support Services Packet.
  2. Step Two – Complete the Questionnaire and Registration Form.
  3. Step Three – Fax or mail back the Questionnaire and Registration Form.
  4. Step Four – Someone from Wellspring will call to set the appointment.


Our team of experts can help you determine if the group or relationship your loved one is in has the characteristics of abuse, if their activities seem to be or could become harmful, and what the best course of action might be for dealing with the situation. We can also provide support in helping family members cope with the extreme stress of having someone in a cult or battering situation.

Family Support Services can be offered via telephone or on site at the Wellspring facility near Athens, Ohio.

If you feel you and your family could benefit from speaking to someone on our staff, simply contact us and request a Family Support Services packet. Family members are asked to complete a questionnaire before the consults take place so that our staff will know as much about their situation as possible. The questionnaire can then be mailed or faxed to our office along with payment.

An appointment will be arranged by phone for you shortly after we receive your materials. Because this process involves personal information, we do not transmit questionnaires electronically or via email.
