Anger Management Hotlines and Resources

Anger Management 

For Anyone Experiencing a Loss of Control

If you believe you are at risk of not being able to control your anger, or need help regaining control once an anger-related outburst occurs, calling an anger hotline can provide you with support and information.
Before an anger-related situation develops:
  - Anger management hotlines offer a different perspective on whatever situation is making you angry. This can provide you with the opportunity to find a healthy solution to your problem.
  -  Counselors can offer tips on coping with anger and stress to make it less likely that you will lose control in the future.
Before an anger-related situation escalates or turns violent:
  - Calling a hotline allows you to talk over your problems and vent your anger, which is often enough to diffuse a potentially dangerous situation.
  -  Speaking with a professional can help you control your anger and prevent it from escalating to a dangerous level. Anger management counselors receive training in relaxation techniques and crisis intervention.
During an anger-related crisis:
  - Counselors can offer you a safe outlet for your anger, talk you down from a potentially dangerous emotional cliff, or contact family members to assist you.
  - Anger management counselors are able to contact the authorities on your behalf if you feel you are a danger to yourself or others, and they will remain on the line with you until help arrives.
