When we’re feeling emotions, whether they be happiness, anger, sorrow or other emotions, these feelings are very real to us. It can be hard when someone dismisses your emotions, especially if you feel justified in these reactions. But for one in five Americans, anger disorders can be a true challenge. At i-Kare Treatment Center, we know that anger disorders can lead to other issues as well, such as drug use and alcohol abuse. If you’re facing an anger disorder, alcoholism, addiction or any combination of these challenges, it’s time to see how our professionals can help.
How do I know if I have a problem with anger?
We all get angry now and then. To others, our outbursts, such as yelling at another driver on the road, may seem extreme. But anger disorders are characterized by more than exploding every now and then.
An example of this may be something simple, such as someone stepping in front of you in line at a fast food restaurant. Sure, this can be frustrating. But if you begin screaming, throwing things, or if the very act ruins your entire day, you may be facing some challenges with anger.
Anger disorders take many forms, and all of these manifestations require specialized treatment. At i-Kare Treatment Center, we offer treatments for many anger issues, including:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Intermittent Explosive Disorder
- Psychotic Disorder
- Narcissistic Personality Disorder
These disorders express themselves in many different ways. If you or someone you love seems to have issues expressing, handling and managing their anger, you’re encouraged to reach out for help. Failure to properly treat issues with anger can create many other challenges.
Can problems with anger lead to substance abuse?
Individuals with anger disorders that don’t receive proper treatment often wind up turning to drugs and alcohol to try to control their moods. But substance abuse will only worsen your anger disorder. That’s because drugs and alcohol can cause neurological impairment that results in damage to your abilities to control your emotions and anger. It can become a truly vicious cycle.
