Charlie Sheen to Start Fresh in Anger Management

Charlie Sheen in Anger Management
Anger Management Stars Charlie Sheen

FX’s new series, Anger Management, premieres later this month.  The series stars Charlie Sheen who ironically has been in the news for his own anger management, cocaine abuse and domestic violence issues. A recent New York Times article mentions Sheen’s “history of substance abuse, rehabilitation and relapses” and even quotes the actor himself saying that working with him is “not always going to be smooth sailing.” Indeed, recovering from cocaine addiction or any other substance abuse is a lifelong process that is not always easy.

The very public meltdown Charlie Sheen had last year has yet to be forgotten. The actor’s reported cocaine abuse; alcohol abuse and destructive behavior were seen all over the media as he spent time in and out of hospitals and drug rehab centers. Anger Management gives Charlie Sheen a chance for a fresh start on a new show. There is a lesson to be learned from Sheen’s televised outbursts as well as his return to work. Cocaine abuse can make an individual violent, irritable, paranoid and impulsive. Once abusers develop dependence on the drug, cocaine addiction can be hard to break alone. Cocaine addiction can hinder normal social functioning, performance at school and work and personal finances. Also, cocaine abuse can have serious physical consequences such as tremors, heart attack and stroke.

The decision to enter cocaine detox in order to rid the body of the drug is the first step to being able to return to work like Charlie Sheen. Once cocaine detox is complete, drug rehabilitation is the recommended way to work through underlying issues that may have contributed to an addict’s cocaine abuse and any other substance abuse issues. If an individual needs help with specific aspects of recovery, such as anger management, it can be worked through in drug rehab programs. After attending a quality drug rehab, an individual should have the tools he or she needs to live successfully in recovery. It takes commitment and hard work to stay clean and sober. Like Charlie Sheen said, it’s not always going to be smooth sailing, but substance abusers can put their lives back together after the worst of meltdowns. At Recovery Connection, we are committed to helping those who are struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction, call our confidential 24/7 addiction helpline at  866-386-1608 and take back control of your life.
