The requests break my heart.
I often receive emails from readers asking me to help them extract one of their family members from a cult. Other times, a reader will say: “I think my loved one is in a cult, but I’m not sure. How can I know for certain? Please help!”
One of the best brief articles I’ve read which covers these topics was written by the late Dr. Paul R. Martin, founder of Wellspring Retreat and Resource Center in Albany, Ohio. Dr. Martin’s two-page article answers the following questions:
1.) How can I tell if my loved one is in a cult or cultic relationship?
2.) I think my loved one is in a cult or abusive relationship, what do I do now?
3.) My loved one just left a cult, how can I help him or her?
