Description:

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 $100/person.
