The Other Side Ministry

Jay and Valerie Cupit

Meet Jay Cupit and his wife, Valerie, founders of The Other Side.

“In 2014 a group of people formed a ministry and began meeting with an idea that we CAN do something about the problem of drug and alcohol abuse in our county. We knew that we had the answer to the drug and alcohol problem, His name is Jesus! We began as an outreach to help people realize they needed help for their addictions and then help them find a facility that could offer help. We developed a goal to buy the Wilburn School campus, which was abandoned several years ago and open a faith-based drug and alcohol treatment center. On July 8, 2015 the Wilburn School campus went on the auction block. We knew that this was the opportunity we were looking for to make the dream a reality. We were awarded the winning bid for the purchase of the school campus. The Other Side was born.

We opened on January 1, 2016 and have been ministering to those who were lost in addiction. We have had over 100 graduates and in 2017 opened a women’s ministry in the Searcy area named Daughters of the Other Side (DOTS). DOTS has graduated more than 50 women since they opened.

We have the best job in the world because we have a front row seat and have the opportunity to watch God work through the lives of the broken people he puts in our path. It is a blessing to watch God take these men and women and restore them to the people he intended them to be. Better fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. God is good!!!” – Jay Cupit
