Without knowing too much about all the objects you happen to be using this is what I came up with.

- Begin Code -
    Public Function GetGroups() As String
        Dim search As DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
        Dim groupNames As System.Text.StringBuilder
        Dim result As DirectoryServices.SearchResult
        Dim propertyCount, propertyCounter, equalsIndex, commaIndex As Int32
        Dim dn As String

        search = New DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher(path)
        groupNames = New System.Text.StringBuilder()

        search.Filter = "(cn=" & filterAttribute & ")"
        search.PropertiesToLoad.Add("memberOf")
        Try
            result = search.FindOne()
            propertyCount = result.Properties("memberOf").Count
            For propertyCounter = 1 To (propertyCount - 1)
                dn = result.Properties("memberOf")(propertyCounter)

                equalsIndex = dn.IndexOf("=", 1)
                commaIndex = dn.IndexOf(",", 1)
                If -1 = equalsIndex Then
                    GetGroups = System.DBNull.Value.ToString
                    Exit Function
                End If
                groupNames.Append(Mid(dn, (equalsIndex + 1), (commaIndex - equalsIndex) - 1))
                groupNames.Append("|")
            Next
        Catch e As Exception
            Throw New Exception("Error obtaining group names. " & e.Message)
        End Try
        GetGroups = groupNames.ToString()
    End Function
- End Code -

Hope this helps! :)
