No. The Denial / Anger / Bargaining model was trash, devised by Elizabeth Kubler Ross, and had nothing to do with recovery, but were falsely claimed to be "5 stages" of adjusting to the certainty of death. There weren't 5 of them, and they weren't stages. How best to find emotional recovery depends on who you are, what you are trying to rcover from, and are best explored in therapy with a shrink or counselor.
