Substance Use Support Groups
If you're looking for help with substance abuse in Massachusetts or for Massachusetts substance abuse counseling, these professionals provide substance abuse services and substance abuse treatment. They include substance abuse support groups in Massachusetts, substance abuse psychologists and substance abuse counselors.

An Massachusetts substance abuse support group provides outpatient services but can also refer to treatment centers, clinics, rehab, treatment programs and substance abuse rehabs.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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.
