I worked for eight years in a substance abuse clinic treating adults with drug and alcohol problems. I believe honesty is vital to true recovery, and I strongly encourage my clients to be open with me about their progress and their struggles. I provide a confidential and non-judgemental environment for them to work towards true sobriety. I stress prevention of relapse, identification of and avoidance of triggers, and encourage my clients to develop a support system. I help to educate them about the biology of and stages of addictions, and deal with distorted thinking, damaged self esteem. I explore with my clients the origins of their addictions when we both agree they are ready to do so.

I specialize in substance abuse and addiction counseling. I have done extensive research on the topic, worked at addiction centers, and taught graduate courses on the topic. From my years of clinical experience counseling those struggling with addictions, I have learned that there is no one size fits all approach.

Addiction is, perhaps, one of the most complicated states we humans can experience. That's because it affects us in every respect: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physcially. To be addicted, is to be imprisoned to compulsion: a strong, usually irresistible impulse to perform an act, especially one that is irrational or contrary to one's will. Understand that the very nature of addiction is contrary to what God wants for us. It's our heavenly Father's will that we would live free (see Galatians 5:1). One thing is for sure, when addiction takes over our life or the life of a love-one, the solution is never an individual one, specialized help is needed. Contact KCM today.

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.
