You are not alone. A 2016 study found that 7.8% of people in the United States have concerns about controlling their anger. At SUN Behavioral Health Houston, we solve unmet needs and understand the importance of anger management therapy for people and their relationships. Our no-cost care assessment allows people to meet with a representative to determine the best care plan for their needs before starting anger management therapy. We are here to help you, and we will work with you and your doctor as we consider your assessments to determine the best action plan for your unique needs.  

What We Treat: Anger Management

Anger is a healthy emotion. People naturally feel anger, but sometimes, it can become a concern. When it occurs intensely, it can harm relationships, schooling, and work. Anger management therapy can help people learn healthy techniques to express and control anger. 

How We Treat Anger Management at SUN Behavioral Health Houston

Our mental health services at SUN Behavioral Health Houston provide anger management therapy, including inpatient and outpatient programming.

Inpatient at SUN Behavioral Health Houston

Our inpatient programming is available to children, adolescents, adults, and geriatrics. Our facility also includes a specialty women’s unit that creates a healing and caring environment for women who seek gender-specific treatment. People typically attend our inpatient services for 7-14 days. 


Outpatient at SUN Behavioral Health Houston

Our outpatient programming involves partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) programming. Our adult PHP and IOP have two groups that focus on mental health and co-occurring disorders, while our adolescent PHP and IOP only focus on mental health. In the evenings, adolescents have the option to attend PHP and IOP either in person or virtually. Evening PHP and IOP work well for adolescents who have school during the day. 

PTSD Treatment

Anger Management Therapies

Several types of anger management therapies exist. 


Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy can help people examine where their anger comes from and how they can respond healthily. It can also help people identify unhealthy patterns in their anger.  

Group Therapy

When people receive group therapy during anger management, they can connect with individuals who are in similar positions as themselves, which can help them feel like they are not alone in their anger. Because they feel like they are understood, it can reduce feelings of anger. Group therapy also provides a supportive environment where peers can encourage each other along the anger management journey.
