Anger management is the process of learning to identify signs that you’re becoming angry, and learning corrective actions to either calm down or quickly de-escalate your feelings of anger. The goal is to learn how to deal with your anger in a positive way.
With our alcohol & drug rehab in Arizona, it is important for clients to learn emotional regulation skills. When getting sober, young adult men experience a whirlwind of emotions. After years of drug and alcohol use, it is difficult to deal with feelings and emotions. The feelings hit like a ton of bricks – sometimes without warning. It can be a beautiful, powerful, inspired time for them at one moment, scary and infuriating the next.
The staff at our Arizona treatment center puts great importance on learning to live with our emotions and how to handle them appropriately. When our young men learn to appropriately address their anger and other feelings, they can utilize therapeutic tools to make healthy decisions. Our clients participate in a weekly anger management group as well as a weekly emotional regulations group.
