Addictions can take many forms such as substance use (alcohol and drugs) or behavioural addictions like eating or gambling. The addictive behaviours can be seen on a spectrum that ranges in severity of the issues depending on the person and their unique situation. The client that seeks support for their addictive behaviours is taking a courageous step forward to be ready to learn about their addictive behaviours. The client always sets the pace as to what they would like to achieve in the sessions and what (if anything) they want to do anything to create change in their life.

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.

THIS TIME, is different. We finally pushed it too far. Before now, we got away with telling ourselves “I’m just enjoying myself," or "one more will be fine." But after this last bender, this last sexual encounter, this last bite of sugar, life has caught up with us. Staring directly in our face is the unavoidable, terrifying truth: we’re out of control, and need help. If this resonates, know: I’ve been where you are. Using a mix of humor, guided support, and cutting-edge techniques, I’ll help you navigate the ups and downs of addiction, and start to make choices that leave you feeling confident and empowered. Finally be DONE with those shame-filled mornings, and reconnect to an engaged life.

The opposite of addiction isn't merely sobriety, its community. I use a biopsychsocial approach to addiction that focuses on a strengths based approach, family therapy, and searching out social opportunities to strengthen these results. My goal is to treat the underlying mental health issue causing the addiction, not focusing on abstainence itself as relapses with that emphasis tend to contribute to the cycle of shame and self medicating.

“It was a long and heavy day and I just need to break the edge.” “I communicate better after few drinks” “I can’t fall asleep if I don’t have my…” When a substance becomes a “priority”, or becomes overused, it begins to creep into and destroy an individual’s health, family, relationship and even work. The question becomes "Do I have control over it or does it have control over me?". Often substances are used as coping mechanism without realizing that it often creates even more anxiety and depression, leaving a person feeling more stress and low down the road. Feeling anxious without a "quick fix" or a “temporary Band-Aid” is a strong indicator that a person is or has lost control with the desired substance.
