Wellspring offers healing and recovery through relationship.

Wellspring’s treatment philosophy is built on the relational restorative model pioneered by our co-founders, Drs. Richard and Phyllis Beauvais. Their belief that healing is possible through trust and relationships that develop the unique nature and giftedness of each person in our care has shaped our programs to meet the needs of the residents, students, clients, and families who come to Wellspring.

Founded in 1977, Wellspring has been providing hope and healing for over forty years.
