This chapter examines and defines the differences between group therapy and group support for people with substance abuse and addiction and investigates how these therapeutic interventions are used. A model providing guidance to integrative health-care providers on how to best assess the quality and appropriateness of various group interventions (group therapy and group support) is presented, and calls for future research are made to assist providers, clients, and researchers in determining the specific curative factors in these group interventions.
