We have tried counseling and medication but no positive change...

My seventeen year old son has always had anger issues but because of his age and size it is now anger rages happening up two four times a year where he will become physicially violent. he does not do drugs but has in the last month started to drink..... His GP thinks that its suppressed anger that causing these outbursts and has made reference that it is a family trait on his fathers side of the family. My son is a good boy other then these outbursts of anger that could last up to several hours. I am scared that he will end up in big trouble with the law should this happen outside of home. He has gotten detention from school for cursing but never for any physical outburst. He is always very remorseful for his behavior after a cool down period, but thats too late we have already lived through the outburst... We have tried counseling and medication but no positive change...
