In conjunction with couples counseling, I have had extensive experience on porn and sexual addiction recovery for husbands. For drug and alcohol addictions, I am only one part of a team for these clients - they must be participating in an outside group (such as AA, CR, etc.) and be in some type of rehab program, as well as in personal counseling.

With my unique qualifications, I address the needs of those who continually struggle with chronic relapse behaviors, substance abuse disorders, process addictions, compulsive behaviors, mental health issues, codependency, and trauma related issues. My holistic addiction counseling is also useful for those who need a continuum of care beyond traditional outpatient treatment, self-help groups, and 12-step programs. In my practice, I use a therapeutic approach that is exceptionally powerful. Some of my clients have experienced remarkable results in as little as one session.

In addiction (and codependence) treatment sessions with me, you will gain real hope, effective help, and powerful healing for your unwanted compulsive behaviors. By better understanding the triggers and warning signs of your addiction, you will be more prepared to deal effectively with cravings, achieve abstinence, and maintain sobriety. Learning from me about other addiction treatment resources will give you options for additional support as needed. I will also teach you valuable relapse prevention skills so that you can stay calmer, create more satisfying relationships, and live more fully. I also offer intervention services. Call me with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Addictions entrap us in life and rob us from our dreams and potential. It takes being in a caring and lovingly but confrontive relationship to face the pain that lies behind one's addiction(s). However, it is not impossible to take the power of the addiction away and become the master of those things that drive your addicition. Your addiction(s) fills some very important need(s) in your life. Once we figure out together what need the addicition(s) is fulfilling, we can learn together healthier and better coping skills for getting those needs met.

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.

To live authentically and fully, we must have access to our feelings. In short, this means that we can identify, articulate, express, and finally take appropriate action on them. Addictions, while there is a vast continuum in type and intensity, block full access to our feelings. It is our feelings and our ability to effectively manage them (without addictions) that enable us to connect deeply with ourselves and others. They are our "internal compass" allowing us to discern various parts of ourselves as well as our choice in relationships. Therapy is the ideal place to process feelings and learn how to manage them without addictive substances and behavior.

As an addictions counselor, I understand the importance of providing a non-judgmental, open, safe space where you feel comfortable to share about your use and explore how you'd like to address this behavior. Whether your goal is complete abstinence or a harm reduction strategy, I will work with you to identify the most effective ways to accomplish your goal. Many times in addiction work it is more about the feeling we are trying to achieve from the addictive behavior we are engaging in. This is why it is important to understand and implement alternative healthier strategies that achieve a similar feeling or result. When we do this; change is possible.

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.
