cult recovery 101

Our associates are consultants, psychotherapists, and counselors, many of whom themselves are former cultists or have been exposed to destructive cults or other coercive influence techniques.

They have specialized training and/or experience working with people who may have been harmed by individuals and groups.

Cult Recovery assists group members and their families make the sometimes difficult transition from coercion to renewed individual choice.

“When ex-members had been polled (at ICSA Recovery Workshops) they consistently gave these reasons for joining their groups: Idealism, Friendship, Love, Freedom, Community, Mission, Sincerity, Salvation, Enlightenment, Spiritual high.

People don’t join cults. They get involved in groups they are led to believe represent these high ideals.” — Rosanne Henry, MA, LPC
