NorthEast of the Well, a small but powerful group of O.C. locals joining forces to support fellow residents fighting substance addiction, will gather for a holiday celebration Dec. 15 to spread their message that “lasting recovery requires more than just abstinence.”
“People need to form deep relationships with others, have the opportunity to feel significance and connect with something greater than themselves,” said the organization’s Kristel Miles.
For those unfamiliar, the name of the organization is taken from the New Testament — John, Chapter 4 — describing a woman at a water well encountering Jesus Christ. In the modern era, NorthEast of the Well offers an outreach program affecting some 350 O.C. residents every week in various forms of rehab.
Volunteers visit some 15 county programs and sober residences and provide more than 1,400 meals each month. In addition, the group transports recovery addicts weekly to worship services.
