Beaches Recovery provides a comprehensive approach to overcoming chemical dependency, alcoholism and co-occurring disorders. One issue that many clients need help with is understanding their emotions and learning to express anger appropriately. To that end, Beaches Recovery offers anger management groups.
Clients seeking recovery from addiction to alcohol or drugs often have problems dealing with anger and appropriately expressing themselves. Anger is often tied to relapse because vulnerable patients unable to communicate their needs often find turning back to their substance is an easier way to mask or manage their feelings. Of course, relapsing instead of dealing with anger is a very negative outcome. To prevent such problems as part of recovery, clients must discover the emotions behind their anger and learn anger management skills.
Understanding anger and anger management can be a critical aspect of addiction treatment because anger is often what led to substance abuse in the first place. Many clients are dealing with trauma, such as sexual abuse, violent crime or the death of someone they love. Instead of addressing their own feelings and appropriately managing their emotions, they turned to the substance of their addiction. Understanding that anger is usually a secondary emotion, in other words, anger is masking a deeper more vulnerable feeling such as fear, is important for the client to learn in order to reduce their anger. If a client’s anger isn’t treated properly, the destructive cycle of drug and alcohol abuse will likely continue.
Likewise, addiction masks the anger and drives clients to behave inappropriately. They may lash out at others even though the anger is really at themselves. Because they haven’t dealt with their feelings or been taught anger management in the past, they may engage in the following unhealthy behaviors:
Clients in recovery who are taught how to appropriately deal with their emotions and express themselves constructively stand a better chance of remaining sober for the long term. Anger management can improve relationships and make life much easier.
