About Us

STARTINGPOINT OF NEW JERSEY is a non-profit organization with a focus on healing the mind and soul. We elevate our community’s well-being by offering educational programs, referral services, and a resource center for individuals, families and businesses seeking compassionate and empathetic support for themselves and others. Issues around mental clarity, wellness, grief, co-dependency tendencies, chronic worry and addiction recovery are offered.

Here at STARTINGPOINT, we believe no one needs to unduly suffer from challenging addictions or mental health issues, due to lack of knowledge or resources.

Mental health and addiction services are dominated by private and government organizations offering single-issue solutions based on income.  We fill the void for many who fall in between private and government-sponsored care and provide access to a variety of support services that help guide our clients along.

Located in Haddon Township, NJ just a short walk from Patco’s Westmont High Speed Line Station, our available Resources include -

  • Our new, popular Adult School House warmly received since its launch!
  • Support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA), Al-Anon, Co-Dependents Anonymous (CODA), Eating Disorders Anonymous (EDA), Emotions Anonymous (EA), Nar-Anon, A Course in Miracles, Recovery, Inc, Ala-Teen, Sexaholics Anonymous (SA), Survivors or Incest Anonymous (SA) and others as added.
