A Mission For Michael, M.D.

Medical Doctor

Within Driving Distance of Capistrano Beach, CA

Addiction medicine should be highly individualized and therapy-based. We do not believe in the traditional 28-day treatment model or making decisions based on money or insurance coverage. Each patient and family that comes to us is very special and has special needs. Highly complex substance use disorders need a team of therapists, case managers and doctors that understand addicts and their underlying issues. We treat no more than 6 men and 6 women at one time, therefore manifesting our belief in individualized and specialized treatment.

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind.

Addictions are ways people have learned to cope and regulate difficult and painful feelings. My approach is to teach you how to talk about and process the underlying emotions which fuel your addiction, and find alternative ways of coping. No matter what the addiction, it can distract you from important relationships in your life and keep you from being the person you know you can be.

Scientists have researched for years to isolate and locate a physiological marker that would identify someone’s predilection for addictive behavior. However, even if they were successful, any addict could tell you that addiction is much more than a physical problem. No matter the addiction, multiple factors contribute to the descent into this common form of mental illness. Physiological factors do play a role in addictions, as well as do family, cultural, environmental, and psychological considerations. So, which is it for you? If you are a typical addict, all of them apply to a certain extent. Relapses into addiction after typical rehab treatments, usually occur when all factors haven’t been ....

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Capistrano Beach, CA

Empty places within us create vacuums that long to be filled. Drugs, alcohol, sex, spending money, eating, being excessively busy are examples of the ways we attempt to fill the holes that exist within us. Going back to the origin of what created the 'hole' and repairing at that level releases us from the pull of the various forms of addictive behavior. If we don't attend to this, we may stop one addictive behavior, but we will evitably find another. These 'holes' are always healed in the context of a safe, reflective relationship. The therapeutic relationship can help repair those palces where we were left alone to process things we had no early capacity to handle.

I've had an extensive amount of experience working with addictions. I practice some Psychodynamic techniques initially and throughout therapy to get to the underlying emotional aspects. Life can be extremely painful and challenging and many people think it's easier to just kill the pain with a pill, alcohol or some other negative addiction.

Are you preoccupied with the addictive or dysfunctional behavior of a close friend or loved one? Do you worry about controlling his or her behavior? Do you feel compelled to solve his or her problems? Are you always anticipating his or her needs? I would like to help. Recovery from codependency is possible. When you place another person’s health, love and safety before your own, your own needs and desires can become hidden, lost and forgotten. I would like to help you re-connect to yourself and build healthy and intimate relationships.

Clinical Psychologist

Most often, nothing becomes an issue until it starts to interfere with your own level of functioning. Depending on the level of addiction, may depend on your level of treatment. Outpatient therapy is focused on those who are more stable within their addiction, and are wanting continued accountability and personal growth as their focus. Treatment may be more collaborative at this level (psychiatrist, physician, sponsor) to ensure that progress is continuing. Types of addiction treated in my practice: drug/alcohol use, food/exercise, shopping and co-dependency issues.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I've worked in inpatient chemical dependency, researched the use of videotaped feedback in alcoholism treatment, & taught a university graduate course in Substance Disorders & Treatment. While active addiction is generally best treated inpatient, outpatient counseling can be an indispensable support both preparing for and after initial recovery, preferably in conjunction with a strong 12-step program, for relapse prevention and for learning a new concept of self and building the skills and tools needed for sober daily living, such as boredom-avoidance, assertiveness, and relationship building and maintenance.

Addictions are a complicated area of work. Often the specific addiction is a symptom for much deeper discontent and shame. Along with the physical body addiction, many times the psycho-emotional issues have been present for a long time. Gaining insight and understanding to these usually very early aspects of oneself can be a useful life long tool in recovery and maintaining that recovery.

Addiction can kidnap your life in ways that are preventing you from maintaining your special relationships and productive work. Whether you are interested in quitting your substance of choice or not, I work with clients who are in "recovery" or still using and assist them in either living with their addictions in a way that is less problematic for their lives or total abstinence if that is their preferred choice.

There is so much guilt surrounding addiction. You get angry at yourself for not being "strong enough" to combat it. Your addiction has been your way to cope. No, it is not healthy, but you first must have some compassion for yourself and what got you here. Overcoming addiction requires intensive treatment, support, and a plan. Will power is simply not enough. I can help you create a plan that will give you the best advantage to overcoming the chains of addiction so that you can be free to live your life and enjoy your loved ones, and regain trust in yourself again.

In the initial stages of addiction, many addicts need to get involved in rehab. programs, support groups and many other important interventions. While I do get involved at any stage in the addiction process, frequently I am not as involved in the early stages. By this I mean simply that I do not involve myself in the "wrestling the addict to the ground" to convince them they need to quit. I get involved when the addict, who wants to learn to live successfully in terms of accepting life, addressing the complicated world of emotions, relationships and the living of a healthy, but fulfilling lifestyle.

Addictions can sneak up on us in our lives without us really noticing how bad it's gotten. The denial part of the addiction, makes us think we don't really have a problem, when we really do! It can ruin our health, careers, finances, and drive away the people we love. Many people with addictions, end up penniless, and alone. A well trained therapist in addictions, can be very helpful to clients who are trying to regain control over their lives and the addiction that controls them.

Most of my clients are not the person with the addiction, but the person married to the addict. Learning to set firm limits, not make excuses for the addict and no longer blame yourself for your spouses addiction is the first step for most people. Although there are many good addiction inpatient facilities in our area I find most of my clients are successful when attending AA, getting a sponsor and attending at least one meeting a day.

We see a variety of clients who struggle with addictive or compulsive behaviors and impulsivity. People who struggle with these symptoms may choose one or more repeating behaviors, actively engaging in pornography, alcohol, food, a belief, another person, gambling, gaming, or acquiring material possessions. Helping clients to understand the nature of addiction and the factors contributing to the behavior is the first step toward freedom. Tailoring treatment to the problem, we engage with the pattern using a multi-level approach. Not limiting therapy to only behavioral methods, we use CBT as well as Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
