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.

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.

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Addictions are highly entrenched behavioral patterns that seem to take on a life of their own. I view addictive patterns as ways that parts of ourselves are trying to fill unmet needs, search for comfort, relieve stress/tension and sometimes to express a powerful urge to be independent or defiant. In addition to encouraging group supports such as AA/NA, I use body awareness to help us identify triggers and to allow them to act out/ express themselves in sessions. This lessens the likelihood that they will be acted in the world- and fills in the unmet needs. I also teach ways of grounding in our body, and holding a strong stance, so that we can contain the urges when they arise.

Most of the clients I see in my job as Mental Health Clinician for Solano County have a diagnosis that includes substance abuse. I believe that substance abuse can be overcome through various behavioral and psychotherapeutic approaches and I readily apply these techiques to my treatment plan. I also rely on the assistance of outside groups such as Alcoholics Anonoymous and NA. Sexual addiction is an area of importance in our society and I can work with people who are preoccupied with self-destructive sexual behavior, too.

Only you know if you are an addict or not. If you are interested in finding out the right answer to this and other questions regarding addictions and habits, you are in the right place. Sometimes, habits go too far but can be altered fairly easily, especially if you are able to alter situations in your life that may feel unbearable. At other times, stopping an addiction head-on can be one of the most affirming accomplishments in your life. Every person is different. I will work with you to find what the approach for you to rid yourself of self-destructive situations with people, places or things. Feel free to call me today and let's see if we might be a good match.

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.

Larry Lease, JD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pablo, CA

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.
