    Jacob’s Well Recovery Center Introductory Letter

    Jacob's Well Recovery Center is a Christ centered addiction recovery center for women located near Poplarville, Mississippi. We are a privately owned, privately operated, nonprofit corporation organized under 501-c3 guidelines. Our ministry was established in June of 2005 by Founders and Ministry Directors Pastor Charlie Haynes and his wife Pam. Our recovery program is based on the healing power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through whose Grace we believe and have been witness to the fact that women can be healed from ALL types of addiction once and for all and forever.

    Jacob's Well is a “resident” six month worship and work program where women are taught sound biblical principles of living by being required to sit under three hours of teachings, devotions and preaching every day six days a week and four hours on Sunday. These teachings, devotions and preaching are presented daily by a great staff of Pastors from many different Christ centered denominations who volunteer their time weekly to come and minister to the residents in the program. Jacob's Well is an interdenominational and inter-racial recovery program. In addition to a concentrated program of biblical teaching we also offer the residents a soundly structured daily schedule based on rules, policies and procedures that teach them responsible behavior and good work habits. Even during the work times the staff of the ministry encourages the residents to enter into and remain in fellowship with each other as they work together in such a way that they are daily building social skills that demonstrate the love and behavior of Christ one to the other.

    We consider Jacob's Well to be not only an INDIVIDUAL healing ministry but a FAMILY healing ministry as well. New residents are not allowed visitors or phone calls the first thirty days of residency to give them an opportunity to get firmly grounded in the program without distraction. However, after the initial thirty days of residency the families and significant people in the lives of the residents are not only INVITED but ENCOURAGED to come and take part in the healing process with their loved one. Our families are very important to us. Our visitations are generous and are centered around our worship services and teachings so that the families are led to come and worship with their loved one while they are healing. Our hope and desire is that by doing so the resident AND those significant to her will exit the program “equally yoked.” Jacob’s Well Recovery Center operates on only that money which God provides through the personal donations of local churches, civic organizations, individuals and the modest tuition that we ask of the residents who enter our program. Jacob's Well also works closely with the Miss. Dept. of Corrections, law enforcement and the judicial system to give women an alternative to incarceration when they run afoul of the law in their addictive behaviors.

    God has blessed us with a remarkable healing success in our program. An overwhelming number of the women who complete our program will remain free from their addiction and live productive lives. A very large percentage of the women who come through this program as well as family members will be led to Christ as their personal Lord and Savior or rededicate their lives to Christ and be baptized while they are in residency here. We are pleased and confident to say to all who will listen that God is doing a mighty work in the lives of otherwise broken and hopeless women and their families through the ministry of Jacob’s Well Recovery Center. May Christ receive all the glory for what He is doing in the lives of those He calls to this place? “By His stripes we are healed...”
