Through its founder, Vicki Duffy, Launching Point has been providing self-injury support, resources, awareness, and literature since 2001.
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.
We have since grown, and now offer UnShackled, a 10-step self-injury recovery program for those struggling with self-inflicted violence as well as Celebrate Recovery, a principle based recovery program geared toward overcoming all addictions.
