Recognizing and Coping with Anger

Anger-ManagementAnger is a common symptom experienced by those recovering from addiction. Anger is a powerful emotion that can cause physical deterioration by inflicting a great deal of stress on the body.

Unfortunately, anger is often overlooked as something one could or should be able to easily control.

However, if feelings of anger are suppressed, one can turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate or suffer from high blood pressure or increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Conversely, frequent outbursts of anger are likely to lead to damaged relationships, crime, and abuse.

We offer group therapy to help individuals connect with others experiencing similar challenges, fears, frustrations and resentments. Our Anger Management Group is focused on recognizing anger and solving problems.

A facilitator will explain and demonstrate anger coping techniques such as the following:

  • Communication
  • Relaxation
  • Positive thinking
  • Breathing exercises
