The Ministry of the Addictions
and Recovery Team

The Addictions and Recovery Team provides compassionate, nonjudgmental presence for individuals and families within WellSprings who are struggling with alcoholism and other addictions, and helps connect people with resources for recovery and healing.


We know that trusted and supportive relationships are necessary in the recovery process. The members of the team are there to listen and to help ease the loneliness of people and families who are suffering from addictions, and to work alongside people in their recovery. We believe that a growing and honest spiritual life is an essential part of recovery from substance abuse and addictive behaviors.


The Team is composed of WellSprings members who are in recovery from their own or family members' addictions, and/or who have a professional background in serving people with addictions and substance abuse. The team is not composed of experts, but of people who understand that the journey from addiction into recovery is essentially a spiritual pilgrimage towards greater wholeness in our lives. We seek to share our experience with others.
