Anger Management Treatment. Proven Results

Anger is a very powerful emotion that can help or hurt you, and others around you. Anger is a normal emotion, and even a healthy one – if you deal with it in a positive way. However, if you feel like you are unable to control your anger and it is controlling you, then treatment may provide the long-lasting relief you need.

It is important to deal with anger in a positive way. If you hold it in, it can lead to a passive/aggressive behavior of wanting to get back at people.

Anger issues are quite common with about 23 million Americans, 8.9%, of the population have impulse anger issues, and are unable to control their anger. Our Whole Person Care approach to care can help.

Symptoms of Anger Based Issues

If you recognize yourself as having some of these feelings and behaviors on a regular basis, it may mean you do have an issue around anger, and that you may need help.

  • Inability to remain calm during arguments
  • Small things almost always turn into a big thing
  • You find yourself get extremely angry over very small things
  • Heart racing
  • Muscle tension
  • Violent acts towards objects, animals or people
  • Inability to think straight

How can you manage your anger?

  • When you start to feel anger, take some very deep, slow breaths. Have a word or a phrase that works for you to – something like “calm” or “relax” or “breathe.” This helps you focus on your breath and not on the situation and your anger
  • Taking time outs at very stressful parts of your day can help you gain perspective and have a moment to gather your thoughts, without just reacting to the situation. A few moments of quiet can help you feel better prepared for what’s to come.
  • Exercise and physical activity can help balance your chemicals and can help release tension and anger, as well as improve mood. It doesn’t matter what physical activity you choose, but try to find something that you enjoy. You may not enjoy it at first, but commit to sticking to some sort of physical activity for at least 3-4 weeks to ensure you get into the routine and have time to see positive changes on your emotions.
  • Support from family and friends, or even a support group can help. By talking to others it can help you to feel understood and less alone. By talking through your feelings, it can help you to work through some of the issues and help you take positive steps to change.
  • If you are unsure as to what triggers your anger, try to keep a journal of when you feel angry and why. This can help you understand your triggers, and can help to take away their power to evoke anger in you.
  • Avoid using recreational drugs or drinking too much alcohol. Both of these cause you to lose your inhibitions and can make you more irritable and less able to handle frustrations. Alcohol may seem to relax you, but alcohol in excess can add to your anger issues rather than cause relaxation..

The Dangers of Not Expressing Anger

The dangers of not expressing anger

It is important to express your anger, but not in a hurtful or destructive manner. By taking some deep breaths, or thinking about the cause of your anger first, you might be able to control your emotions and then respond in a calm and constructive way.

This is where treatment can help, as experienced health professionals can help to teach you steps to control and manage your anger in a healthier way.

If you don’t deal with your anger, and keep it suppressed inside, it can lead to anxiety and depression. It can increase your risk of illness and cause destruction in your relationships, and even your work.

Long-term anger has been linked to serious health conditions like heart problems, headaches, high blood pressure, problems sleeping and digestive problems.

Untreated anger can lead to great harm to the people around you as the anger builds and takes over your life.
