Addiction Support Groups
If you're looking for help with an addiction in New York or for New York addiction counseling these professionals provide addiction therapy (or addiction therapies) and addiction treatment in New York. Addictions are deceptive: they begin small and then take a hold so that behaviors as common as smoking addiction, or quitting smoking, may become challenging to change. Professional help can be vital. These professionals include addiction support groups, addiction psychologists and addiction counselors in New York. They can help addicts with alcohol addiction, drug addictions, and less understood addictions like gambling addiction, internet addiction and sex addiction.

For substance abuse, the professionals have experience helping individuals with cocaine addiction, marijuana addiction, methamphetamines ('meth' addiction), opiate addiction and heroine addiction. They provide New York addiction counseling, addiction intervention, addiction support, referrals in New York, detox, rehab and New York 12 step programs.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
New York Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in New York is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in New York are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
