Getting Help for Your Anger Issues

Anger is a healthy emotion, and most of us get mad at times. This reaction can occur for various reasons, from getting delayed for a flight to getting into a quarrel with strangers or loved ones. It’s even possible to get angry at ourselves. However, even though anger is a normal emotion, there are times when it can become problematic.

At All Day Medical Care Clinic, with locations in Gaithersburg and Silver Spring, Maryland, our team offers comprehensive medical care for all aspects of your wellness, including behavioral health issues. If you find yourself struggling with anger, we can help.

Recognizing anger issues

Many people think uncontrolled anger manifests as violent or aggressive behaviour. However, this isn’t always the case. Anger issues can look quite different from person to person. While some people struggle with short tempers and violent outbursts, others can find themselves quietly seething most of the time or obsessing about the things that make them angry. 

Plus, one of the biggest challenges with uncontrolled anger is that many people don’t realize it’s a problem until it affects their lives. That’s because chronic anger can impact all areas of your life, from your career and relationships to your mental and physical health. In fact, uncontrolled anger can lead to long-term health complications, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, insomnia, and a weakened immune system.

The good news is that approximately 75% of people who receive anger management therapy see improvement in their behavior.

It’s even possible to learn better coping mechanisms to handle people or situations that trigger your anger.

There are several therapeutic approaches used in anger management, including steps you can take on your own. However, working with a trained professional can help you through the process better, because your therapy will be tailored to your unique situation.

Undergoing an anger management program can help in several ways, including:

When you work with a member of our team, we can help you gain control over your anger and frustration. And, you’ll also gain the tools you need to have long-term results moving forward.
