Do you worry about addiction? When you can identify your unmet needs, you begin to take control over addiction. Most people have at least one addiction, and many people have several. Addictions can be any self-soothing behavior that we have a difficult time stopping. Gaming, shopping, social media, food, attention, religion, alcohol, and porn are just some examples of common addictions. Addictions don't necessarily have to be a negative thing, unless they are causing problems in your life or in the lives of others. I can help you identify and understand the role an addiction might be playing in your life, and will work with you to find healthier alternatives.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions. Addictions take over a person’s ability to have of self- control of the action which leads to the fogging of any will power to stop the addictive activity even when a matter of great importance comes in conflict with the addiction.

I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction.

Emotional problems have many various expressions and sex is just one of them.

Does the fact that the desire is natural permit the man to indulge his lust? The answer is no. The desire to look at the female form is insatiable and irrational. It is driven by the most primitive part of our brain where the sense to survive is stored. It is impersonal and detached. If indulged, it will weaken the man's bond with his mate and decrease his sexual desire for her. Researchers have discovered that the effects of repeated exposure to standard, non-violent pornography increases the man's callousness toward women; distorts his perceptions about sexuality; devalues the importance of monogamy; decreases satisfaction with his wife's sexual performance, affection and appearance and raises doubts about the value of marriage.

While personal psychotherapy can become an important element of addiction recovery, there’s no substitute for 12-step work. That being said, each person must ultimately find their own path and pace which fits for them. Honoring this uniqueness is part of my job of providing the core valuing mirror which facilitates healing. I have many therapeutic “power tools” like DBT and EMDR to support each phase of stabilization, resolution, and integration in the recovery process.

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.

Recovering from addictions is a process and is unique to each person. I know that with addiction comes relapse. I use a non-judgemental compassionate approach. The goals of therapy are to achieve abstinence from self harming behaviors, to gain control over overwhelming symptoms, to become aware of your triggers, these triggers may be related to past trauma, to become aware of your feelings and learn how to express your vulnerable feelings,to create appropriate boundaries,to become aware of internalized negative messages toward yourself, to learn how to let go of destructive relationships, to learn how to ask for help, to heal the past and finally to repsect yourself.

Almost everyone has an addiction. It is actually a "defense mechanism" people use to not have to feel emotional pain and disconnection. In working with you on your addiction, we will uncover the root of the emotional pain and I will help you heal that, while also helping you begin to commit to small steps towards controlling the addiction until the day comes when you no longer need your addiction.

Addictions can come in many forms. Alcohol, drugs, food, shopping, overworking, codependency on others and they all cause problems personally and in relationships. Seeking help is important. We usually find ourselves using other substances, things and people, when we don't have the coping skills to handle the stresses, or unresolved issues that we have. Therapy can give you the tools you need to avoid using your addictions.

I have an extensive history of addiction/substance abuse work. In the past I worked as a counselor at a methadone clinic, doing therapy with opiate addicts, & I currently work at Heritage Oaks Hospital, where I do assessments and group therapy with people struggling with addiction among other issues. When it comes to working with addiction I see it as my job not to tell you to stop or pressure you into change, but to help you examine your relationship with addiction and how you would like it to change. In my experience, addiction is most often the result of trauma and/or damaged attachment. When people feel unsupported and unsafe in the world, they tend to turn to unhealthy ways of coping.
