Alcoholism groups in NYC that are Not AA?

I'm looking for non-AA alcoholism treatment groups (non-residential) in New York City (preferably Manhattan or Brooklyn ) for someone who is AA-averse.

The individual seeking this treatment is rejecting AA because he is tired of hearing "war stories" (covertly competitive stories about how much damage the individuals wreaked before giving up booze) and also finds it difficult to figure out how to get a sponsor and really take part in the structure.
Low-cost would be great, although there is health insurance that might be available.
There is also the possibility that an AA group exists that is different from the groups he's tried, as per the above, so if anyone can recommend such an AA group in NYC, that might be a possibility too. thanks.
