A number of years ago I was involved in SMARTRecovery, and I worked in residential treatment and provided consultation to residents of sober living homes hoping to transition to work and life. After starting my private practice I developed DoneWithDrinking--a combination of AA-alternative thinking such as in SMART, Motivational Interviewing, and in the Community Resource Approach. Unwanted drinking behavior is based most often in depression and anxiety of the existential types, and I find that working on those symptoms helps resolve problem drinking.

Addiction can be a tricky and slippery issue to deal with due to its nonlogical nature. I know this from personal experience because I dealt with with addiction issues before becoming a psychotherapist. It is this combination of personal and professional experience that makes me uniquely qualified to help people recover from this particular issue.

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.
