For help with issues related to liver disease, please contact our Help Center by using the Live Chat feature at the bottom of your browser window or call us at (800) 465-4837 Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time or by email at info@liverfoundation.org.


Support groups provide a place for individuals affected by a similar condition or circumstance to provide and receive support and share their experiences.

Not all support groups are facilitated by a medical professional. Some support groups are facilitated by 3rd party organizations and individuals in this region.

ALF also has identified virtual online support groups you can take advantage of by visiting this page.
