Anger and substance abuse often occur together, which increases the risk for negative consequences such as physical aggression, self-harm, distressed relationships, job loss, or criminal justice involvement. This 12-week group is designed for individuals who have substance use and mental health concerns along with anger management problems. This group uses a cognitive-behavioural approach to understand anger and learn how to make a change. Each weekly 90-minute session will occur using videoconferencing (Zoom). There is a limit of 10 spaces. The cost is $80/person.

Anger management addresses the symptoms of anger problems by targeting the emotional and physiological components. It involves identifying triggers and faulty beliefs; strengthening assertiveness and conflict resolution skills; learning about what is under the surface of your anger; and, practising strategies to express your emotions in a way that supports healthy friendships and family bonds.
