A real stumbling block that can prevent people in Southampton from getting the most out of their time in alcohol or drug addiction centres is anger. This is an emotion that most people will struggle with from time to time, but it can be a real liability for those who are dealing with an addiction. Some of the dangers of anger for people in Southampton who are in early recovery will include:
- When people are angry it can mean that they lose control. They are unable to think straight and are more likely to do things that they later regret. It is vital that people in early recovery are able to stay in control because otherwise they will be more at risk of relapse.
- If the individual is in an alcohol or drug rehabilitation centre they may lose their temper and use this as an excuse to check out of the facility. This will usually be a decision that they later regret because they will have missed out on a chance to live a new life. If the individual relapses there is no guarantee that they will ever be able to summon up the motivation to quit again
