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.

When we feel empty or broken and unable to fix ourselves, we will do anything to avoid experiencing the resultant hurt, pain, anger, or boredom. What may be a harmless pastime for others becomes for us a destructive addiction. Feelings that compel addictive behaviour may be difficult to face, but there is hope for another way to live. Our approach involves exploring current goals, relationships, family history, triggers, thoughts, as well as strengths, supports, and resources. We have successfully supported people, and their families, struggling with alcohol, drugs, internet, food, shopping, love, sex, pornography, and other addictions to live fuller, healthier and happier lives.

My treatment approach to dealing with addictions is focussed around identifying the person's values, the use of mindfulness based 'tools' and strategies and finding out the causes of the client's dependence on drugs or alcohol. I find that individual counselling combined with external support is sometimes useful, e.g., 12 step programs, but not for everyone.

I worked for many years for a retreat centre and I have seen and worked with many addicts. I think that it is essential that someone suffering from an addiction is wanting help and change for themselves. I help the person with an addiction look at what negative core beliefs created the addiction in the first place.There are many types of addictions and although some take the form of alcohol or drugs, the most insidious are the emotional addictions. Understanding the "pay off" for the addiction is an important component for wanting change. It can also be helpful to work with then family members of an addict to help them understand what they can do to help their family member.

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.

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.

There is no magic bullet to treating addictions. Many addictions stem from a trifecta of circumstances: (1) a biological / chemical dependance (eg. alcohol leads to chemical changes how our brain and body's nervous system functions and communicates) , (2) a cognitive dependance (I deserve a drink at the end of the day, it helps me relax), and (3) a behavioural (eg. having a drink at a social event is normal, or helps me loosen up). Often addiction is a (not so) perfect storm of these three issues. The good news is that the Cognitive and Behavioural components are quite easy to begin to address; and, in turn, the biological / chemical component is also adjusted.

If we all arrived on earth with an owners manual, it would be far easier to discover the most adaptable ways to cope with the onslaught of challenges we face as we grow and develop. But, we stumble along, often grabbing at crutches that soothe us for a while, but end up bringing us to our knees. My role in addiction recovery is helping you find positive soothing habits, helping you learn how regulate your emotions so that soothing is needed less on the whole, and helping you stay connected to your needs so that you remain in the drivers seat.

Addiction is a symptom, it is based on the belief that there is something wrong with me. The underlying cause of this behaviour is a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. Once the belief in general unworthiness is corrected and replaced with loving acceptance, healing is inevitable. The belief in guilt and past behavior that is unforgiveable is an error that needs correcting, not punishing.
