Addiction is a family problem, a family disease. It is painful for spouses, parents and children to watch the addict struggle. An addict's family usually has tried many ways to help but has been unsuccessful, which leads to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Family members often don't realize they need support to recover from the effects of their loved one's addiction, but they do. If your life if affected by someone with an addiction, you need help and support to figure out how to disentangle yourself from the addict.

Overcoming addiction requires a multi-faceted approach to treatment. Part of my job is to help you access resources and to hold you accountable as you take the necessary steps to freedom. In addition, I will help you examine underlying issues that predispose you to addictive tendencies and help you as you recalibrate your life to one that takes you in the direction of health and freedom. I will support you and encourage you every step of the way. I will also speak directly to you when and if you are not doing your part.

When people think about the word addiction, the most common thought is about drugs or substance. But we can experience addiction to anything, including pornography, computer games, shopping, gambling, even things that normally represent positive things such as exercising or working. People suffering from addiction may have a brain chemistry that is hardwired that way. But sometimes addictions come about as a maladaptive response to a trauma or an event in a person's life. Part of therapy is to help determine the cause of the addiction and then to find the appropriate modality to treat it.

When someone seeks help for addiction, one of the most common obstacles they face are ambivalence/uncertainty and motivation to change. Furthermore, most clients quit getting help for addiction due to their therapist not being able to understand where the client stands in terms of stage of change. My approach when working with someone dealing with addiction and trying to make a change is simple- meet them where they are! My approach is straightforward, warm, non-judgmental, and honest without being harsh. I utilize Motivational Interviewing which is greatly successful when working with clients who are working through addiction issues.

I take a systemic approach to addiction, looking at both your family history and the current circumstances that keep you stuck. Please contact me for a confidential consultation whether you're struggling with your own addiction or that of family member.

Addiction counseling of whatever substance including sugar, is treated with cognitive behavioral counseling. I believe in the innate strength of the person to do what they say they want to do. I teach the client to honor their emotions, learn to talk about those feelings out loud, decide their next action or behavior using logic and rational thinking to quell the urge to act out by using. We celebrate and pay attention to hours and days of sobriety and abstinence. I often strongly advise additional therapy sessions in the early treatment and/or attendance to AA, NA, or OA.

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. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-606-6161.
