The question is not "why the addiction but why the pain" - Gabor Mate. Addiction is rooted in human suffering and complex social problems. Drawing on the work of Gabor Mate, Narrative Therapy, Systemic Family Therapy, and Response-Based practice, I will begin to address the pain and suffering experienced by individuals and families. We will also exploring the social context the contributes to an addiction culture. One of the goals is to start to separate the person from the addiction. Each individual is so much more than the addiction they experience.

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.

If addiction was a choice, there would be no addicts. Often the stigma and shame that people face can add to the problem. In counselling, I work with individuals, couples, and families to understand what is really going on, how to accept what we cannot change, and how to develop a plan for moving toward a healthy lifestyle. There are many theories of addiction and why it exists, in my practice with people struggling with substance use, I look at the biology, psychology, and social aspects of the addiction.

I have over 22 years of experience working with clients suffering from severe addiction issues. I currently work as a Senior Probation Officer and I see the devastating impact addiction has on individiuals, their families and society as a whole. When I encounter some who is struggling with addiciton issues; I will assess and determine the scope of the situation and allow the therapeutic interactions to guide the treatment. I believe therapy should be client centered as this is where the healing begins.

Addictions indicate trauma and lack of personal needs being met. What are you numbing from? Many addictions are multi- generationally experienced, or part of unmet health care and or mental health needs. Violence is often part of the cycle of addiction. The more severe the addiction, the more severe the lifestyle issues. Safety, stability, and risk reduction are the first steps. I can offer you psychological support for all of the issues that go with severe addictions. Detox is available at the Phoenix center, Methadone clinic is in Kamloops. Gambling recovery, and substance abuse recovery programs are available. I offer pre and post treatment care. What is recovery to you?

I have extensive experience helping others overcome an addiction, understand and cope with anxiety and depression. I am very laid back in my approach. I believe the client/ counselor rapport is important when seeking help. It will establish a healthy relationship in which a person will get the best care. I will provide my clients with the necessary skills, knowledge, and opportunities to become responsible citizens.
