Background The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of emotional regulation training on depression, anxiety, and stress among patients with alcohol dependence. Depression, anxiety, and stress are very common negative emotions seen in the patients with alcohol dependence which leads to relapse of the condition. The emotional regulation could help the individuals to overcome the negative emotions. Methods The present study adopted a one-group pretest and posttest in a preexperimental design. A total of 30 patients with alcohol dependence in two de-addiction centers were recruited using a convenience sampling technique. In this study, the participant received the intervention of emotional regulation training for 13 days to overcome negative emotions. On the 14th-day posttest was conducted. Results There was a statistically significant difference found in the mean scores of depression, anxiety, and stress at p<0.001 level between the pre and posttest. There was no significant association found between the scores of depression, anxiety, stress, and any of the background variables of the patients with alcohol dependence throughout the pretest and posttest. Conclusions The study proved that emotional regulation training is an effective intervention in reducing negative emotions like depression, anxiety, and stress among patients with alcohol dependence.
