Your Future is Today!
At Anger Consultants we believe that addiction is a loss of control of oneself to a substance, person, or process, as evidenced by physical, mental, and spiritual unmanageability. We believe that alcoholism, chemical dependency and compulsive addictive behaviors are chronic, progressive and treatable diseases. We believe that the dynamics common to alcohol and drug addiction can extend to other compulsive addictive behaviors including eating disorders, compulsive gambling, sexual addiction, and others.
The pathway to recovery is founded on the achievement of two primary goals:
- Abstinence from alcohol and drugs and other compulsive addictive behaviors
- Movement towards a change in lifestyle
To assist individuals in recognizing and managing their emotions, particularly their anger. We are here to teach acceptable ways of expressing emotion. Anger Consultants teaches different techniquesfor stress management and enhancing emotional intelligence. We devote lessons on how to improve communication so that you may become better listeners, as well as communicators. Our purpose is to help you prevent angry situations in which you tend to “lose control.”
The Mission of Anger Consultants to provide treatment and education to the chemically dependent person, those with other compulsive addictive behaviors, their families and significant others.
Treatment is provided through Residential Care, Family and Aftercare Programs.
The goals of this treatment are to:
- Assist each client in achieving abstinence and recovery from all mood-altering drugs and / or compulsive addictive behaviors.
- Educate and treat each client on the disease of addiction and/or compulsive addictive behaviors within a safe, confidential, and medically supervised therapeutic milieu.
- Assist each client in improving the quality of his or her relationships, careers, social, emotional physical and spiritual well being.

Our intensive outpatient program in conjunction with our sober living facility, provides a stable, loving and caring environment. Our clients are able to obtain the goal of long term recovery. We believe in personally guiding each and every client through each and every step in becoming clean and sober. We also acknowledge and will strive to help the client work on resolving any underlying core issues, which may include anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, etc. In that attempt, we will provide traditional addiction treatment for adults and their families with an emphasis on maintaining long-term recovery through innovative methodologies and individualized treatment planning.
At Anger Consultants Counseling Center, we understand that high quality recovery services should not and cannot be available only for the rich and famous. At many facilities, the cost of treatment approaches that of a major surgery. To that end, A Better Tomorrow will strive to maintain the most cost effective yet comprehensive and successful program possible in order to meet the needs of every income strata.
Anger Consultants Counseling Center also realizes that those who are battling addictions use up a disproportionate amount of resources. They miss more working days and they are often less productive than fellow workers. They place more claims against workers compensation, unemployment, health and life insurance benefits. Their addictions result in more automobile accidents, emergency room visits, and 911-emergency calls. Their actions exacerbate the problems of overcrowded court dockets, probation systems, Parole System, jails, prisons and juvenile detainment facilities.
Fees are based on a sliding scale for all classes.
