I've worked in Addiction for many years at treatment centres and in corrections. I'm well versed in the 12-steps approach and will apply this approach only when a client is interested and open to this. The 12-steps approach is not for everyone and so I also provide alternative ways to overcome or reduce one's addiction. Treatment of addiction starts with identifying one's triggers and then goes into alternative coping strategies that are proven to be effective. Time is also spent on examining the source of one's addiction so that change can happen more deeply. I view addiction as a symptom of a larger problem and believe if we mend the larger problem, the addiction will decrease.

I have 30 years of experience helping individuals and families struggling with addictions of all kinds. Over the years my methods have changed dramatically. At one time, we used the "scruff of the neck" technique....picking someone up and dragging them to a treatment centre or a 12 Step meeting. Now I'm much more sophisticated in my approach...meeting a client or family at the point they are at. First we assess readiness, then we explore their specific needs, and then we develop a plan together. I find when I work collaboratively I get much better results!

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 email@example.com or call 877-606-6161.

Real Solutions for Real Challenges Common Sense techniques. Short-Term & Cost Effective Most often addictions are a symptom of pain. hurt , and loss of some form. The addiction serves to reduce this pain and suffering. However, the affect is has on the individual is to make them feel out of control, guilty, lazy, and generally worse about themselves whin in turn drives them to seek more relief. This is often the downward spiral of the addiction cycle. Martin helps his clients reframe thier negative statements about themselves and then exposes the core beliefs that keep triggering their destructive and untrue beliefs about their whole character.

We all find ways to protect ourselves from experiencing painful emotions, however, some people's coping mechanisms are more harmful than they are helpful. Addictions are commonly the route many people take to avoid feeling pain, but the cost to the rest of their life is tremendous. In my work with addiction, I support clients in getting out of their habitual patterns of relying on an outside fix (whether it be food, alcohol, drugs, sex, and the like), and find the strength, personal conviction and self-love to live a less self-destructive life and find healthier ways of coping with life's many challenges.
