Rapt

We deliver drug and alcohol services – in prisons and in the community – which help people move away from addiction and crime.

These services provide a variety of support, including advice, counselling, group work and intensive treatment. We work with the families and carers of substance misusers, as well as substance misusers themselves.

We also contribute to learning in the treatment of drug and alcohol issues through research, and to the quality of the sector through our training and volunteering programmes.

Anger is a valid, healthy emotion. However, many of us learned from a very young age, that anger can be dangerous and destructive. In the words of anger management guru John Lee, "Anger equals pain". As children, it is vital that our angry feelings are accepted by our caretakers. If these feelings are not heard and respected, we carry our resentments into adulthood and project them onto others, especially loved ones, work colleagues and those in authority. As grown ups, most of us fall into two distinct categories of behaviour, affecting both our mental and physical states. This in turn can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, ill health, relationship break-down and loss of job etc.
