Anger and Addictions Group
This group is for clients who experience an interaction between their substance use and anger management problems (e.g., becoming more aggressive when using drugs/alcohol or using drugs/alcohol to manage their anger problem). Goals include: understanding the connection between anger and alcohol/drug use, learning triggers for aggression, avoiding discomfort with substances and disconnecting the link between mood and use of drugs/alcohol. This group is designed for clients for whom the interaction between substance abuse and anger management is problematic. Clients with significant anger management or substance abuse issues independent of each other would be best suited in a substance abuse group and/or anger management group.
