Anger And Substance Abuse Counseling In San Diego, CA

Anger is a powerful emotion, and it’s not always unjustified. Everyone feels anger occasionally, and when it’s expressed in a healthy way, it can be a reasonable response in certain situations. But if you’re battling a substance abuse disorder, you may have trouble dealing with your anger appropriately, and it can hinder your efforts to recover from your addiction.

There are lots of reasons why you may get angry. Perhaps it’s a reaction to being confronted about your addiction to drugs and alcohol. Or when you feel angry, you may turn to substance abuse in a misguided attempt to help you get past your volatile feelings – only to find that using drugs and alcohol only make your emotions more intense and harder to deal with.

At Right Path Rehab, we realize that it’s easy for anger and substance abuse to create a dangerous cycle without you even realizing what’s happened. We recognize the importance of helping you develop anger management skills during the course of your addiction treatment. Without learning how to express your anger in a healthy way and keep it in check, you run the risk of letting your emotions take control of your life and drive you to continue abusing drugs and alcohol.

We’ve Helped Thousands of Individuals Overcome Drug and Alcohol Addiction

If you or a loved one are ready to overcome drug or alcohol abuse, our addiction specialists are here to guide you through every step. Many of our dedicated staff members are in long-term recovery themselves and understand firsthand the challenges of the recovery journey. This personal experience, combined with our professional expertise, allows us to offer compassionate, effective support tailored to your unique needs.

Anger Issues Are Often Deep-Rooted

If you grew up in a hostile, aggressive home environment, you may be more likely to have tendencies of anger and violence. And people who have anger issues are more likely to have problems with substance abuse. According to a recent study, children who witness angry behavior between their parents are likely to experience problems as they grow older, including:

  • Academic struggles
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Rebellious behavior
  • Social awkwardness
  • Substance abuse

As a child develops personality traits and learns social skills, being in these abusive situations can cause trauma, which affects your personality and your likelihood of growing up to abuse drugs and alcohol.

You should never try to deal with these anger issues on your own – the risk is too great. At Right Path Rehab, we provide the support to help you keep your anger in check and not let it influence you to use drugs and alcohol. Our professional team of clinicians and therapists can incorporate anger management into your personalized addiction recovery plan to ensure you have the best chance of a successful, long-term recovery from your addiction.
