STANHOPE — For the first seven years of her marriage, one Stanhope woman was subject to mental, physical and emotional abuse.
To cope with her anguish and the shame of a failed marriage — as a woman of Asian-Indian descent, she would be shunned as a divorcee —
Meena Singh turned to alcohol.

Barbara Adolphe, executive director of the Center for Prevention and Counseling in Newton, said one in four children is living with a
parent who abuses alcohol.
“That in and of itself speaks volumes,” Adolphe said. “Because alcohol is not even viewed really as a drug by most people and because it is
so commonly used and abused, many times it’s hard for people to understand when they’ve had enough.”
Singh said the goal of In Awe Foundation Inc. is to “recover and discover.”
“Research has shown, although we think heroin use is worse in urban areas, it’s worse in rural areas. In our county, the abuse of alcohol
and prescription drugs and the use of marijuana and heroin are pervasive and they are all real problems here,” Adolphe said.
Singh said, “Coaching is the modality that I want to use for treatment for individuals afflicted with abuse and addition (rather than other
forms of treatment like counseling or therapy).”
Speaking from her own experiences, Singh noticed that most counseling centers and shelters allowed abused women to see themselves as
victims. She said the philosophy of victimization was offered by her counselors and written in all the literature she reviewed.
“It was everywhere,” she said. “But I don’t believe we are necessarily victims. We choose our surroundings, we make choices and decisions
to be in certain relationships.”
“Victimization is just a word,” she said. “You can make the choice today to leave. There are a ton of (support) resources.”
Additionally, Singh said counseling allowed people to vent, but didn’t give “homework” to clients in order for them to progress and grow as
In Awe Foundation Inc. hosted its first fundraiser Oct. 16 with the ultimate goal of raising money to provide life coaching and build life
coaching centers in the area. Singh hopes the first center will be
located in Flanders, where she has already eyed an unused building.
“It’s all about action,” Singh said. “Coaching makes you do things. It’s a form of accountability.”
The special fundraiser program featured meditation, laughter yoga and guest speakers like Chris Curran, author of “Leap Beyond Your Limits”
and founder and president of Goal Ability!; Diana Perez, a self-titled “jolliologist,” a certified laughter yoga leader and owner of
Laughter Heart yoga; and Marlene J. Waldock, founder of Because We Are Women and former co-host on News 12 New Jersey.
Guest speaker Christine Overton, Ph.D., also offered meditation targeted at those afflicted with abuse or addiction, a technique she finds
helpful during the healing process. Overton is the first female resident and chief executive officer of the Hanover Area Chamber of
“With everything I’ve seen around the world, it’s my responsibility as a leader of New Jersey to support the community with programs to
produce sober, stable citizens and help to highlight the need for community programs that produce safe environments for men, women and
children,” Overton said.
In Awe Foundation Inc. will present four “mastermind sessions” beginning Monday, Nov. 28. The group coaching sessions are geared toward
afflicted persons with the goal of passing along their knowledge to others faced with similar tribulations. The sessions will be held each
Monday; the final one will be held Dec. 19.
“It’s about helping other people who are like me,” Singh said.
