Alcohol Use Support Groups
Alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, is the most severe form of alcohol use. It is a chronic disease characterized by the consumption of alcohol at a level that interferes with physical and mental health and with family and social responsibilities. An alcoholic will continue to drink despite serious health, family, or legal problems.

If you're looking for help with alcohol abuse in New York or for a New York alcohol abuse support group, these professionals provide confidential support for alcohol abuse or for individuals and couples in a relationship where alcohol is a disruptive factor. They include New York alcohol abuse therapists, alcohol abuse psychologists and New York alcohol abuse counselors. They can help with alcoholics in New York, drug alcohol abuse, teenage alcohol abuse, substance and alcohol abuse and treatments for alcohol abuse in New York. support groups can identify the signs and causes of alcohol abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to alcohol abuse treatment centers. A support group may also discuss 12 step programs in New York or joining AA ( New York Alcoholics Anonymous).

Alcohol abuse causes problems for the family and loved ones of alcoholics--they may also need help and support, which these New York support groups can provide.

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.
