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.

Addictions begin with wanting to have fun, wishing to relieve depression, urge to fit in, family history of addiction, physical pain, social settings, or emotional pain. NO ONE sets out to become addicted to drugs, smoking, shopping, eating, sex or self-harm. But once your brain chemistry and emotional pattern becomes very attached to the temporary relief or high you attain on that addiction, you become out of control. In essence, you are no longer you. You are your brain on that action or substance--frankly that sucks! Regaining your true essence, your true self by walking a program of being truthful, disciplined, answerable, and biochemical balanced begins here and now. Take steps.

I've had an extensive amount of experience working with addictions. I practice some Psychodynamic techniques initially and throughout therapy to get to the underlying emotional aspects. Life can be extremely painful and challenging and many people think it's easier to just kill the pain with a pill, alcohol or some other negative addiction. I help to enable the client to substitute some of these negative behaviors with positive behaviors.

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.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. 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. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Struggles with addiction and substance abuse can often be accompanied by guilt and shame, and this guilt and shame are typically triggers for continued use/relapse. Use of a strengths-based approach to treating substance abuse can tap an individual's own strengths to gain insight and to increase coping skills. Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy can also prove useful to address unmet needs, feeling "stuck" and challenging irrational thoughts that lead to continued use.

Scientists have researched for years to isolate and locate a physiological marker that would identify someone’s predilection for addictive behavior. However, even if they were successful, any addict could tell you that addiction is much more than a physical problem. No matter the addiction, multiple factors contribute to the descent into this common form of mental illness. Physiological factors do play a role in addictions, as well as do family, cultural, environmental, and psychological considerations. So, which is it for you? If you are a typical addict, all of them apply to a certain extent. Relapses into addiction after typical rehab treatments, usually occur when all factors haven’t been ....

I specialize in working with partners of addicts. Sometimes it feels like your partner is "cheating" on you with drugs, alcohol, pornography. Sometimes a partner is actually cheating. It feels as if you're not good enough, and it's easy to feel sad, worthless, ignored, or just angry. It's important to be seeking help during this time to learn to set boundaries, to engage with your partner in an honest way, and to have expectations that your partner is seeking treatment. I'm here for you, to listen to you, to support you as you walk down this very lonely and fearful road.

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.
