The cycle of addiction is so devastating and frustrating because those around us do not fully understand. Let's work together to look at what need this addiction is serving in your life. Let's look at family patterns that might be reinforcing this behavior. We can develop an action plan that will assist you in abstinence and recovery. We will explore other options like AA and the 12 Steps to see if they make sense in your recovery. We will also use cognitive behavioral methods to understand your triggers and develop a prevention plan. Let's work together to bring you a drug and/or alcohol free life that is both fulfilling and rewarding!

The cycle of addiction is dizzying to the addict and it creates what I calling "doing" some forward movement in growth. And undoing. The old (by now probably moldy) undoing). The trapdoor for the addict is you know the drug offers relief. And since you live only in the hear and now (emotional and physical pain can cause that feeling) you want the instant relief that it seems only the drug gives you. My job is to gently and sometimes not so gently dispel you of this massive myth. What you really need is to learn to slow down by substitution of behaviors. It will be clearer when we meet.

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Have you been struggling with one or more substances like alcohol or drugs? Do you feel like the substance is in control rather than you? Perhaps you have an activity interest that has taken over your life, like shopping, gambling, or pornography. Maybe you’re a workaholic. If you’re truly happy in that pursuit and don’t care how it affects your health or your loved ones, you may not need my help. If, on the other hand, your addiction has become a compulsion which is causing you significant interpersonal, family,or personal grief, I can help you conquer it. I’ve been doing so with others like you for over 25 years and almost all patients have referred a loved one or friend for my help.

Neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback provides the most effective treatment in resolving the underlying compulsive dependence on the addictive process. Addiction develops as a survival solution against the pain and trauma that exists within the individual spirit. Clearly, the unconditional acceptance of the anonymous programs (AA, NA,GA etc.) provide the safe environment necessary to begin the healing process to self acceptance and spiritual help. However, in conjunction with these most successful program it is necessary to focus and resolve the underlying issues which can be most effectively achieved through Neurotherapy treatment provided at Dr. Malone's office.

I provide a thorough therapy approach when it comes to various addictions. Often addictions are an indirect result of other life crises. I make certain that the client and I get to the heart of the addiction through establishing clear-cut short-term and long-term goals and addressing the root of the addiction itself. It is found that once you get to the bottom-line of why a person chose their specific addiction that by focusing on the causes, there can be strength found for working out the issues that may result in a person falling off the wagon- so that an individual will admit the problem, take initial steps for curing the problem, and omit the influences that feed the addiction.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Location: 948 East 156th Street, Bronx

The present focus of my practice is not on addictions, although that is part of my training and previous emphases (including dual diagnoses) and I maintain currency as a licensed clinical addictions counselor. If you are seeking individual treatment for addictions (especially if connected to other issues), I would welcome talking about this with you to help determine if I would be the right person for you to work with. My general approach is from a systems approach combined with pastoral counseling. Assistance can also be offered for those who are seeking to deepen the spiritual dimension of their recovery. I look forward to your journey to wholeness and peace.

I've helped clients overcome the crippling effects of addiction and am experienced working with a variety of addictions: alcohol, drugs, food, internet and porn, gambling, shopping, and spending addictions. We'll work on behavioral controls, putting thoughts between feelings and addictive behaviors, psycho-education about the benefits of sober and abstinent behaviors, as well as reducing the self-esteem problems that can lead to addictive behavior. I am a supporter of 12 Step Programs but also realize that these don't work for everyone, and my focus is on helping you do what will work for YOU.
