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.

Addiction is a treatable illness. All that is required is that you want to stop using the substance(s). Therapy can help you overcome your addiction. Not all people fit into the AA model, although all people could benefit from the support. Even without the 12 steps, I can help you think about your cravings and your triggers so we make a plan to help you stop using - and stay stopped.

Addiction is a coping mechanism gone wrong. It's a self-protective defense that no longer works. Usually it is avoidance of underlying, unconscious pain. Therapy will help you get to the root of issues causing addiction. A harm-reduction model is used which means we follow your own goals for reduced substance use not necessarily abstinence. I will help you figure out your own goals for change. Talking to a therapist can bring you out of the isolation and hiding that perpetuates your substance use. Simply sharing your struggles relieves pain.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Most of the clients I see in my job as Mental Health Clinician for Solano County have a diagnosis that includes substance abuse. I believe that substance abuse can be overcome through various behavioral and psychotherapeutic approaches and I readily apply these techiques to my treatment plan. I also rely on the assistance of outside groups such as Alcoholics Anonoymous and NA. Sexual addiction is an area of importance in our society and I can work with people who are preoccupied with self-destructive sexual behavior, too.

Addiction can be layered with loss, grief, and isolation. It might seem impossible to give up or reduce something that has felt so central to your life. I will provide a safe and nonjudgemental space for us to explore your experience and to create change and movement. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative. By making links between your past and present experience we can develop and increase understanding and awareness and create space for something new to happen.

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 Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Within driving distance of Mill Valley

Addiction is usually the symptom, not directly the problem. Addiction is usually present initially because someone has really hard experiences and feelings that they are trying to escape from. But once we find a substance or behavior, it can be physiologically and emotionally/psychologically addictive. The addiction is so hard to break partly because it helps relieve us of the thoughts and feeling that we don't want to or even can't deal with. Don't beat yourself up for having addictive tendencies. A large portion of our community does. I can help you find relief, understanding and compassion as you evolve to a more nourishing and growthful existence. You're not alone.

Are you having difficulty coping with stress and find yourself repeatedly doing those unhealthy things that you want to quit? This does not have to be a full-blown "addiction" to substance but maybe you find yourself having problems stopping yourself. If so this is the perfect time to get some help to understand what you need and how to stop those habits.

Addiction Counselor

Jay Reid, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Mill Valley

I take a collaborative approach to working with issues of addiction. I believe that addiction stems from attempt to maintain the belief that one is in control of their consumption in spite of lots of evidence to the contrary. I partner with clients to help them objectively evaluate this belief and consider whether they have less control over their use than they had thought. Once one can acknowledge that they do not have control over their use, the path to full recovery becomes accessible. Each person must come to this conclusion on their own and with the aid of support rather than judgment. I strive to do this in my therapy practice.

Addiction Counselor

Natalie M. Mills, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

If you are an addict or in a relationship with an addict, you know what an insidious disease this is. Gambling, alcohol, drug, eating disorder, internet, sex, or shopping addiction affects not only the addict, but the addict's family and friends; the grip of addiction is crushing. The manifestation of any addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. It feels impossible to live without your drug or behavior of choice and impossible to live with it. If you are the loved one of an addict, you might experience monstrous resentment at them for their behavior. You have probably said or thought, "If they loved me, they would stop." If it were about love, they'd stop. Contact me for a consultation.

Addiction Counselor

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed psychotherapist

Addictions are highly entrenched behavioral patterns that seem to take on a life of their own. I view addictive patterns as ways that parts of ourselves are trying to fill unmet needs, search for comfort, relieve stress/tension and sometimes to express a powerful urge to be independent or defiant. In addition to encouraging group supports such as AA/NA, I use body awareness to help us identify triggers and to allow them to act out/ express themselves in sessions. This lessens the likelihood that they will be acted in the world- and fills in the unmet needs. I also teach ways of grounding in our body, and holding a strong stance, so that we can contain the urges when they arise.

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, AMFT

Holistic Psychotherapist

Addiction can be a debilitating disease. Whether it is an addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, spending, love, sex or gambling, the effects can greatly impact your life and relationships. My main goal in working with addiction is exploring what it is that makes one satisfied. I also work to uncover potential issues underlying the addiction, such as past trauma or grief. I've worked with those who are both active addicts and those who are in recovery, but want to process their past experiences and lifestyle from when they were active in their addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Lisa Bograd, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Mill Valley

For many people who did not get the emotional support and security that they needed as a child, drugs, alcohol, and other compulsive behaviors can become a powerful way to experience a sense of calm, comfort, and internal cohesion. Ultimately, however, these same substances that once offered somewhat of a haven and a comfort, become a source of great stress, anguish and upheaval. I try to help my clients understand both how this behavior serves them and the damage that it has done to them and to get them to the point where they feel capable of giving it up because they have the tools available to help them to cope without it.
