Through its founder, Vicki Duffy, Launching Point has been providing self-injury support, resources, awareness, and literature since 2001. She began speaking at hospitals and small groups.
On November 4, 2005 the first and only self-injury support group in New Jersey began! In October of 2006, Launching Point was incorporated and a year later in October of 2007 Launching Point was delcared a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Over the years we have offered recovery programs:
- 2007-2015 Celebrate Recovery, a step-based recovery program geared toward overcoming all addictions
- 2010 we offered UnShackled, a 10-step recovery program to overcome self-injury.
Although Launching Point was birthed as a 'self-injury support & resource center', we have been described as an "inner healing" center.
