Managing Anger in Recovery

Managing Anger in Recovery - The Bergand Group

Anger in recovery is a normal part of the process. Dealing with anger in recovery is a tricky thing, as alcoholics are used to dealing with unwanted emotions through drinking. Anger in recovery can be a trigger for relapse. It is extremely important that those in recovery continually seek treatment, as addiction does not end at the last alcoholic drink.

Coping With Anger in Recovery

If you are in a program for your addiction recovery, you are in luck! Managing anger in recovery is best done under the care of a professional addiction recovery specialist. In programs like individual therapy, anger management and relapse prevention, those in recovery can learn the best ways of dealing with anger as it arises on their road to recovery.

Some suggestions for dealing with anger from Managing Anger as a Tool to Maintain Abstinence are:
-Learning to express your anger through assertive, but not aggressive, communications.
-Taking a “time out” from an argument and returning to the discussion later.
-Using a physical outlet for your anger, such as going for a run or working out.
