It is often the most sensitive and intelligent people in our society who struggle with addiction. How else can we tolerate the injustices, the coldness, the uncertainty, and the losses that come with life and world we live in? People hide away in their busy schedules, drown their thoughts in television, numb their emotions with food, sex, shopping and big purchases, or escape altogether through the use of drugs and alcohol. Maybe we never saw people dealing with and “working through” their feelings of anger, frustration, overwhelm, grief, depression, anxiety, disappointment, and shame in a healthy way. Maybe we just haven’t yet found our own way. No matter how subtle, the cost of substan....

Addiction can be a powerful force that can quickly take over your life and can lead to many negative consequences. Trying to understand your addiction(s) and the underlying reasons that led you to this way of coping can be the beginning of more control and management of these behaviors. It can be difficult to look at behaviors that have caused harm, hurt and shame. Together we can work through this process and I will support you throughout.

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

For many people who did not get the emotional support and security that they needed as a child, drugs, alcohol, and other compulsive behaviors can become a powerful way to experience a sense of calm, comfort, and internal cohesion. Ultimately, however, these same substances that once offered somewhat of a haven and a comfort, become a source of great stress, anguish and upheaval. I try to help my clients understand both how this behavior serves them and the damage that it has done to them and to get them to the point where they feel capable of giving it up because they have the tools available to help them to cope without it.

Individual counseling can be a powerful adjunct to participation in a recovery program. I work only with adults recovering from alcohol or drug addiction who participate fully in a 12 step program. Adult children of alcoholics and individuals struggling with codependency issues benefit from a combination of individual counseling and group participation. Treatment includes identifying triggers to addictive behaviors, using fully the supportive community of A.A., N.A., CODA, or Al-Anon, and developing internal controls to maintain sobriety.

I welcome those who have had previous experience in a recovery program, and now wish to use counseling to strengthen sobriety and rebuild self confidence and self esteem. The goal: to work through the painful emotional experiences that led to addictive behavior, and to develop a solid foundation for the future. I also welcome adult family members who are seeking help relating to a loved one who is currently engaged in the recovery process. The goal is to identify codependent emotional patterns and enabling behaviors, so that healthy interpersonal boundaries and deeper intimacy can be reestablished.

Addictions are very difficult to seek treatment for. Often there is guilt and shame as well as some resistance to giving up the addiction forever. As a result, it is important to help people learn what the addiction has done for them so that other strategies can be developed to fill the same or similar needs in more productive ways. Sometimes with addiction, people need to change friends and that can be challenging because isolation is very difficult for early recovery. I do believe 12-step type meetings can be helpful for some people but it is an individual decision and I do not push it. Recovery is an active and collaborative road.

Are you sitting with feelings of shame, guilt, regret, angst, or fear in regards to your battle with addiction? Have you been through one program after another, but keep resorting to the same old patterns that ultimately lead to relapse? Are you struggling to understand what has you turning to drugs time and time again despite your various efforts to abstain? I specialize in working with people through profound shame and helping them understand the various ways it manifests in their lives. I work with those battling addiction in trying to understand their patterns and thirst for something more in life by getting them to focus more deeply on the complex issues they face in a safe space.

I see addiction as a person’s attempt to regulate their nervous system to either calm down or amp up. This is in response to some unmet need that could be better met directly by becoming more connected with one’s vital energy and fullness. Naturally dealing with the root cause of the unmet need is where the work is, but it can take time to be ready. Moving away from an addiction can be like losing an old friend. Some clients can do harm reduction, cutting back and other’s need to abstain. But healing the part that hijacks a client into believing a misconception about themselves, is where the gold is. Meanwhile, helping a client re-direct to secure their needs in a healthier way, and learning grounding techniques has proven quite helpful in my practice.
