The ministry of addiction recovery is one that has been close to Oliver's heart for a long time. He has seen first-hand the effect that addiction can have on a family and a marriage.
"My wife had a pretty severe drinking problem; her father was an alcoholic," he said. "It caused a lot of frustration in our family because we have three children and there were times when it caused a problem. But she got healed of that through a combination of psychiatric care and, of course, a faith-based program similar to the one we're doing."
With his wife healed, the Olivers made it their mission to help those with similar problems. They began taking many children and young adults into their home who came from less than ideal family situations and backgrounds. Since then, they haven't looked back and now their ministry is the preeminent recovery program in Palo Pinto County.
With a program like A.R.M. so active in the community, Mineral Wells' recent trends in crime could see a sharp turn south. And any projections that indicate Mineral Wells could be a more dangerous place in the future, will be a thing of the past.
