Treatment Options and Their Costs

Below, you will find a list of some of the most common anger management treatment methods. There are many different variants of these, and it should not be assumed that these are your only anger management options. Call us to find out specifics or learn about your local options for anger management and the associated costs.

  • One-on-One Anger Management Therapy: mental health counseling through therapy is generally considered to be the best treatment option for anger management issues. Through private sessions, the individual can expect to pay a therapist hourly, anywhere from $80 to $150 per session. Your medical insurance may offer to help you foot the bill depending upon your policy and your provider.
  • Group Therapy Sessions: Group therapy sessions are not only widely available but they are much more affordable than private sessions as well. Peer support of others who are struggling with the same issue can be extremely helpful and the ability to create scenarios to practice appropriate responses can make treatment more effective. Some group anger management sessions are free (like RageAholics Anonymous), while others may charge a fee of about $20 to $50 per session for attendance.
  • Couples Counseling Sessions: Sometimes anger management may include both people in a domestic living situation. Whether mother and son, father and daughter, spouses, partners or roommates, these private sessions are billed hourly at a cost of about $80 to $150 per session. Health insurance coverage may assist with the cost.
  • Family Therapy: About one in three teenagers suffer from the inability to control their anger. Family anger management therapy can help at a cost similar to that of couples counseling with the same assistance from health insurance.
  • Hypnosis Treatment Costs: There is some other, off the beaten path treatment options that may assist you in treating anger management, including hypnosis. The costs of this can vary greatly, depending upon what specialist you see, and if your medical insurance will cover any of the costs. On average, hypnotherapy sessions run about $100 per hour.
  • Self-Help Books for Anger Management: Self-help books for anger management are another option that may assist you, though usually in combination with another type of therapy or treatment. These books are extremely affordable at about $5 to $30.
  • Medications: There are some medications that your personal physician can prescribe that may assist with certain anger management symptoms and the core issues of depression. Generally these medications are classified as ‘mood enhancers,’ and they work by reducing stress levels and encouraging a positive mood and spirit of wellbeing. These medications can vary greatly in cost and will depend upon whether or not you have health insurance and if you opt for name brand medications or their generic variants.

No matter which types of anger management you choose or its cost, it is important to keep in mind that anger management treatment is a process. It is not something that can be fixed overnight. Months of treatment is the norm to get the individual to a place where he or she can handle triggers a percentage of the time without losing his or her temper.
