Most addictions whether they are gambling, pornography, internet, alcohol, drugs, or shopping are all rooted in the desire toward pleasure seeking and all result in an outcome which is unable to sustain that pleasurable experience. Often people seek treatment when the behaviors result in destructive outcomes. When a spouse or family member of an addicted person or the addicted person themselves, admits the behaviors are resulting in negative outcomes and the person is unsuccessful in stopping the behavior we define this as an addiction. We provide insight as to what is the root cause and teach them better coping skills.

There is so much guilt surrounding addiction. You get angry at yourself for not being "strong enough" to combat it. Your addiction has been your way to cope. No, it is not healthy, but you first must have some compassion for yourself and what got you here. Overcoming addiction requires intensive treatment, support, and a plan. Will power is simply not enough. I can help you create a plan that will give you the best advantage to overcoming the chains of addiction so that you can be free to live your life and enjoy your loved ones, and regain trust in yourself again.

I believe in a harm reduction model for addiction. I spent years in a clinic dealing with 50 clients, who were addicted to alcohol, opiates, cocaine, crack, and various prescription medications. Clients and I collaborated in finding the motivation to change. Every addict has entertained the thought of quiting. What we do in session is engage you in "change talk" expand on it, and reinforce it. Once the motivation for change is there, learning more positive reactions to triggers can begin. We will deal with self-esteem issues and possible traumas that may have led to self-medication. 12-Step programs are effective in relapse provention. Remember, you are not alone.

I do not work with severe drug and alcohol addiction. I work with clients who are able to function, yet finding it becoming more difficult and needing to stop their behavior before they hit bottom. We use cognitive behaviorial techniques to protect them from acting out and build up a support network. We also begin to explore soothing and coping techniques which are needed and missing.

Psychotherapist, Marriage Counselor, Professional Life Coach

Any addiction is an attempt to deal with feelings that are unmanageable. The alcoholic turns to alcohol to escape problems at home or at work. The gambler turns to gambling to avoid uncomfortable feelings. The sex addict turns to sex to numb him or herself from other feelings. "Self-medicating" through addiction works in the short turn but always has a price attached to it. Together we can discover the underlying issues surrounding your addiction and work towards a life free of compelling urges you may find difficult to resist. Dr. Gary has been featured numerous times on the Dr. Phil show discussing addition. Type in "Dr. Phil and Dr. Gary Stollman" on youtube and watch his numerous videos.

We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

The benefits of Addiction Counseling and Treatment are manifold. Too often individuals are controlled by substances in their life and don't feel free to make their own choices. People can be addicted to everything from drugs, to caffeine, to shopping, to gambling, to alcohol, etc. Addiction counseling is about understanding the need one may feel to be attached to a substance. Counseling focuses on developing other coping skills to manage ones' life without depending on a substance to get through each day.

I prefer to steer well clear of the term "addict." Addict is a word that carries the power to define people in a way that does not reflect their own wishes nor come close to reflecting the totality of their lives. My approach is first to recognize the power, and the allure, of the many substances available for abuse. I will be curious to learn about your journey and relationship with substances, and how you hope to see your relationship in the future.

I am a strong supporter of 12-step programs. My work with clients is designed to complement, not to replace 12-step work. In the program you learn to live day-to-day in sobriety, with integrity and commitment. In therapy, you delve into your personal story and explore the new goals you want to achieve in your life. Many individuals who have struggled with addiction find themselves developmentally stuck at the age the were when they began using; therapy is a good tool for maturing into a fuller, more adult life.
