"...a compelling need to have control over some part of his life." Is this story true? Ryan, the most powerful thing you can do to gain control over your own life is to ask Jesus Christ for some help. I mean, out loud, start speaking his name when you are in trouble, as loudly as you think you can, call out his name and ask him for some help. I did. It does not always work, but when it does work, it is amazing. My neighbors are trying to kill me and/or falsely accuse me of a crime I never intended to commit. I started going out onto the sidewalk and screaming for help from God and Jesus Christ. There's nothing anyone can do about that because it is public space. Then I went back inside my apartment. It scared the heck out of the neighbors and it does appear to be helping me.
