Services We Provide

The Starting Point is a private, non‑profit education and referral center. We coordinate and facilitate many programs, including:

Referrals to counseling and psychotherapy: The Starting Point offers referrals to on-site counselors, who specialize in a wide variety of issues and approaches. More than 30 experienced counselors practice at The Starting Point.

Group meetings: The Starting Point holds free group meetings, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Sexaholics Anonymous,  Al Anon, Narcotics Anonymous, Survivors of Incest Anonymous, and Codependents Anonymous.

Lecture and Educational Series: Our founder, Vince DiPasquale, M.A., holds weekly lectures that are free and open to the public every Wednesday night.  We also have educational programs run by the therapists on site that are open to the public and host guest lecturers that teach meditation and holistic health classes.

All group meetings, workshops, and guest lectures are free and open to the public, but we “pass the basket” and ask individuals to contribute what they can.
