Addictions and compulsive behaviors may provide a person with a sense of power, euphoria, confidence, validation or other feelings that may otherwise be lacking in their lives, and psychotherapy is designed to help people identify uncomfortable feelings and sources of distress in order to change and grow. People who struggle with compulsivity and addiction are unlikely to conquer those behaviors unless they work to address the underlying causes of their addictive and/or compulsive behaviors, such as trauma, stress, past abuse, and so on. Working with a psychotherapist is one of the most effective treatments for managing compulsive behaviors and addictions, and there are many types of therapy suited to addressing behaviors that a person wants to change.

Addiction is often stigmatized in our society and struggles with addiction can carry a great weight of shame. I can help you understand the dynamics of addiction and create meaningful change without the judgment with which it is so often associated.

Most of our therapists have extensive experience working in substance abuse. We define substance abuse as the abuse of drugs and/or alcohol. This includes both legal (prescription drugs) and illegal drugs. There is quite a debate as to what constitutes substance abuse, so here are the definitions of substance dependence and substance abuse paraphrased from the (DSMIV) Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders: Substance dependence is defined as when a person continues to use the substance despite significant substance related problems and a minimum of (3) of the following signs are present at any time during the same year. 1.

I work with many individuals who have either identified themselves as having addiction problems or are still in denial that they have problems with addiction....either to substances or to certain destructive activities. Either way, I work with them so that they have a realistic understanding of the destructive consequences of their actions as well as an empathic awareness of the underlying self-destructive attitudes or beliefs (or life experiences) that may have led to their addictions. Addicts need support to deal with their addictions. There is no one way to get this support, but it is vital that addicts know that they they do need support...group support and psychotherapeutic support.

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.

Do you find yourself struggling with using relationships as a way to escape real life? You don’t have to be a relationship “addict” to have a pattern in relationships that ends badly each and every time. Maybe it is time to start to learn about who you really are and what you really need from a relationship. Only after you learn that can you start to choose and nurture a healthy, fulfilling, lasting relationship.

The long-term goals for working with addiction consists of improving the quality of life for clients by maintaining ongoing abstinence. Therapy assists clients in identifying the negative ways that using has impacted their lives. Treatment consists of educating client's about the disease, decreasing resistance and denial, finding ways to obtain sobriety, identifying triggers for relapse, and finding social and emotional support to overcome their addiction. My approach is to assess the type and severity of the addiction and provide my clients with referrals necessary to help them in the journey for recovery.
