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.

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.

Addictions are stressful, frustrating, and anxiety provoking. They lead you to behave in ways that, even as you are doing it, you know are not ultimately going to benefit you. So, if you don't want to be doing it but still do it, what's going on? Well, addictions are a confused, and often harmful, way of coping with a stressful, frustrating, or painful situation. The only problem is, aside from temporarily numbing and soothing you, they don't really solve anything, and they often create problems of their own, making life more stressful and thus increasing your need for the coping strategy all over again. Our program will teach you to simply step free of the struggle completely.

You will learn to address the real pain instead of numbing yourself with your addiction. You will be able to be honest with yourself and others, feel empowered and start living your life to your full potential.

I know from personal experience how terrifying it is to overcome an addiction, but I truly believe that everyone is capable of change. If you're feeling unsure about taking this step, we can move slowly and work toward the changes you're thinking about making. We will work together to build an individualized treatment plan, and you won't be forced to do anything you don't want to do. There are many different models of recovery, and I don't believe that there's a one size fits all approach. If you're stuck in an addiction and you feel scared and hopeless, I understand how you feel and I can offer you a safe and confidential space to start moving toward recovery.

My approach to addiction is multi-faceted and individually focused. Exploring personal history and trauma and grieving losses are often elements, as is reconnecting with the body and its wisdom. In many cases, developing one's spirituality is central to healing. I provide a safe environment for exploring and listening to the range of feelings that have been avoided through the addiction so that reconnection with self is restored and one's deepest longings can be satisfied.

Addictions are ultimately a strategy for coping with distress. Bach counselling assists the client in identifying key issues underlying addiction along with using CBT, Mindfulness and DBT. Understanding how the addiction supports the client, developing alternate tools for coping and an increased tolerance for discomfort are key elements of overcoming addiction.

Addictions Counselling / Treatment can clear any contributing factors that has caused or supports the addiction. When an individual is on the journey of recovery and finally free of the addiction, there is no transferring from one addiction to another addictive pattern. The central nervous system is able to let go of any contributing factors such as old traumas, loss, grief, pain, fear, anger, old conditioning and programming from an earlier time so there is no reason to numb with an addiction. The central nervous system is no longer in fight-flight-freeze-or collapse and the Deep Limbic System, Basal Ganglia, Prefrontal Cortex, Cingulate System, the Temporal Lobes are reset for balance.

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.
