How can I deal with an alcohol problem with Group Health insurance (US)?

I tried to get help for an alcohol problem last year through my insurance (group health). I was referred to a treatment provider who only offered group AA type therapy. Honestly, I would rather drink than participate in a group. I am extremely introverted, and the thought of having to participate in group therapy makes me want to drink just to get through it. Have any of you found another alternative with group health? Please don't tell me to suck it up and go to group therapy! I am so mortified about my addiction that I can't even discuss it with my partner. It was so difficult to tell my doctor (then get referred to group) that I don't know if I can even ask again.
