WELCOME TO DEBTORS ANONYMOUS

Debtors Anonymous offers hope for people whose use of unsecured debt causes problems and suffering. We come to learn that compulsive debting is a spiritual problem with a spiritual solution, we find relief by working the D.A. recovery program based on twelve-step principles. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop incurring unsecured debt. Even if members are not in debt, they are welcome in D.A. Our Fellowship is supported solely through contributions made by members; there are no dues of fees.

Debtors Anonymous is not affiliated with any financial, legal, political, or religious entities, and we avoid controversy by not discussing outside issues. By sharing our experience, strength and hope, and by carrying the message to those who still suffer, we find joy, clarity and serenity as we recover together.

In D.A. you can find a new way of living that offers recovery from compulsive debting and hope for a healthier, happier, more prosperous life.

We suggest that you keep an open mind and attend at least six meetings as soon as possible. If you do not like one meeting, attend another.
The important thing is to keep coming back.

ABOUT NJPADA INTERGROUP

NJPADA Intergroup is a gathering of D.A. members who represent D.A. groups throughout New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. NJPADA Intergroup also serves the needs of members who attend meetings on the telephone (Debtors Anonymous Telephone Intergroup – DATIG), or on the internet. NJPADA Intergroup meets in a monthly phone meeting (see NJPADA Calendar), to plan and provide services for the entire region. NJPADA Intergroup plays a vital role in carrying the D.A. message to the still suffering debtor and is often the first point of contact for people struggling with debt and debting.

The primary purpose of NJPADA Intergroup is to support the D.A. meetings within its regional area and to help direct newcomers to those meetings. Beyond this basic and fundamental purpose, NJPADA Intergroup serves as a clearinghouse for information. Groups elect representatives to general meetings of NJPADA Intergroup and share their experience, strength, and hope in carrying the message. New ideas and approaches are exchanged. Groups share their knowledge and experience with new or struggling groups

NJPADA Intergroup also provides opportunities for cooperation on fellowship projects that are beyond the capacity of any one group. Thus, NJPADA Intergroup develops regional meeting lists, develops and maintains a website, and sponsors events which enable debtors to come together and share their recovery.
