Are you sitting with feelings of shame, guilt, regret, angst, or fear in regards to your battle with addiction? Have you been through one program after another, but keep resorting to the same old patterns that ultimately lead to relapse? Are you struggling to understand what has you turning to drugs time and time again despite your various efforts to abstain? I specialize in working with people through profound shame and helping them understand the various ways it manifests in their lives. I work with those battling addiction in trying to understand their patterns and thirst for something more in life by getting them to focus more deeply on the complex issues they face in a safe space.

Addition can show up in many forms - substance abuse, addiction to technology, love addiction, or addiction to work. Whatever the addiction, you are here because it has started to take over your life and affecting your health, relationships, or work. You might feel powerless over the addiction. Counseling can help you find support and strategies for overcoming the addiction. You can learn to practice mindfulness so you can choose to act in the way you want, not the way the addiction wants. It's time to take your life back. Give me a call today to schedule a free consultation.

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.

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.

I work with a lot of people who are in recovery, who may or may not be in an addiction support program such as 12-step programs. All addictions are attempts to regulate the nervous system. Nervous systems get dysregulated as the after-effect of unresolved trauma. Being a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I use the tools of SE to help clients learn to regulate their nervous systems so the constant unconscious drive to use in order to get relief from anxiety and depression dissipates.

I like to use solution-focused therapy as well as CBT for addiction treatment in my practice. The underlying issue is what drives addicts to use, making that the real problem. The drugs and alcohol are a symptom or byproduct of the real problem that lies underneath. Thus creating the cycle of guilt and shame and driving a person to use more and more. I have had extensive training and experience working with both people in their active addictions as well as recovering addicts and alcoholics.

The therapy is focused on understanding what feeling and experience you may be chasing through the unwanted behavior - feelings of importance, belonging, relaxation - and disconnecting the link that was created between them.

Addiction can be a powerful force that can quickly take over your life and can lead to many negative consequences. Trying to understand your addiction(s) and the underlying reasons that led you to this way of coping can be the beginning of more control and management of these behaviors. It can be difficult to look at behaviors that have caused harm, hurt and shame. Together we can work through this process and I will support you throughout.

There are so many different approaches to treating substance abuse and addiction. Without shame or judgement I work with clients to help them uncover the underlying pain that often maintains addictive behaviors. I encourage clients to take back control of their lives by exploring and understanding their unique relationship with the addictive substance or behavior. Clients can learn to make different, healthier choices and will begin to feel that they really do deserve a better way of life. This increase in self worth and new found peace can guide clients as they heal from within and work to improve the relationships in their lives.

Addictions are very difficult to seek treatment for. Often there is guilt and shame as well as some resistance to giving up the addiction forever. As a result, it is important to help people learn what the addiction has done for them so that other strategies can be developed to fill the same or similar needs in more productive ways. Sometimes with addiction, people need to change friends and that can be challenging because isolation is very difficult for early recovery. I do believe 12-step type meetings can be helpful for some people but it is an individual decision and I do not push it. Recovery is an active and collaborative road.

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.
