Women at the Well Ministries

881 County Road 655, Athens, Tennessee, 37303
Our ministry is for women with life-controlling problems: Using the Word of God, acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord and living in obedience to His will, BREAKS the cycle of addiction.

Facility Highlights

  • Loving Environment
  • Introduction to Jesus Christ
  • Long-Term Discipleship Training


  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
