About the Center for Anger Resolution

We are pleased to announce that The Center For Anger Resolution, Inc. has been acquired by the Institute for Chemical Dependency Studies (IDCS), one of the most respected Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) Training programs in the state of Texas.

Other than a change in asset ownership, you can expect Mr. Hightower to continue to provide anger management counseling services by appointment, and ICDS to continue offer the the Anger Resolution Therapy Certification™ Home Study, as well as Certification Seminars for groups in Houston.

We will be transitioning operation of The Center For Anger Resolution, Inc. to ICDS over the next several weeks; however, you may still access the tools, home study and seminar information from this site. To learn more about IDCS, who we are and what we do, please click here.

At The Center For Anger Resolution, Inc. people find solutions to their anger to take back their life. Founded in 1993, The Center provides counseling, education, and training on anger management.

The Center For Anger Resolution, Inc. specializes in creating positive change for men with anger, depression and relationship problems.

As a licensed psychotherapist for more than 40 years, Newton Hightower is a sought-after expert in anger management. After fighting a personal battle with anger that nearly destroyed his marriage, Mr. Hightower learned to resolve anger.

That led Newton to write his highly acclaimed book, Anger Busting 101: New ABCs for Angry Men and the Women Who Love Them. His book was awarded the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Psychology/Self Help book for 2002 by the Independent Book Publishers Association. The award is given to top books produced by independent publishing companies throughout the United States and Canada. Read more about this award winning anger management book.
