Dermatologists treat Alopecia with steroid injections in the scalp and Minoxidil. Most over the counter medications does not really help at all. In half of patients hair starts growing again within a year but there is no way to predict what it would do in an individual case. I think you should get yourself a wig as you will feel stressed to see clients if you don't feel comfortable with the hairloss. Stress and anxiety can actually increase the hair loss.
I am not aware of any support groups but I am sure you will find some if you google "alopecia areata"
