With 10 years direct experience as an art therapist in a CD treatment center, I believe in the medical model of addiction and the 12 steps. I also believe in personal responsiblity and decision making. I look for and treat any underlying emotional problems, using talk and art tasks based on where the client is in recovery. A lot of self-image and self-confidence work may be needed. New choices.

In working with Addiction, I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR. EMDR is traditionally seen as a technique specifically used in working with trauma. This is true and most of the time, addiction is rooted in trauma so it can be helpful as a dual diagnosis approach. However, EMDR can also be used specifically to help with addictions because it can be used to desensitize triggers for using and help clients maintain sobriety.

I liken addiction to a fever. A fever is the body's way of telling you that your system is sick. People who are not in pain, who are not hurting tend to be addiction free. So, I work with my clients to get at that pain, that system upset and help them uncover the metaphorical virus that hurt them in the first place. While doing this deeper work I also help my clients create new and healthier thoughts and behaviors in order to undo the damaging behaviors that often surround addiction.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Addictions flow out of pain and suffering. Grace and perseverance are needed. Addictions in the basic sense flow out of bodily adjustment/dependence issues. Yet addiction issues also (if not more so) flow out of emotional and spiritual issues. Depending on the degree of severity different approaches will be taken to help the client overcome and reclaim themselves. Breaking of addictions can be extremely hard yet change and healing are possible. Through the therapeutic relationship we will explore and build together.

Addictions are always a statement of personal entitlement, "I can do this and I do not care how it affects you." When acting through your addiction you give the people around you the message that you are important and they are not. I deal with people who live with addictions with firm, clear, loving confrontations. I can help you deal with your grandiosity even if you do not recognize it when you first come in. I can help you find your humility and accept responsibilty for the pain and harm you have caused in relationships. When you deal with it straight on you can have access to the deepest layers of your self-esteem and to your core value. You will move from pretense into authentic life.

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 have done everything for my spouse. I have tried to be there for him and stay calm and do all these things. And yet he's still looking at internet porn. Our sex life is in the pits. He keeps talking about his co-worker Katie. I'm getting more and more paranoid that he's being unfaithful to me. While I am digging into church, he doesn't want to go to there anymore. I am too embarrassed to talk about it with my friends because I don't know if this is all in my head or if this is really happening.

Jungian Psychotherapist

Addiction is very subtle when it enters a person’s life. No one ever thinks, “How can I spend all of my money, lose my job, distance myself from friends and family, and put something in my body that will at least damage me if not kill me?” I have worked with addiction for years now. There isn’t a type of person addiction has not affected. Doesn’t matter your gender, job, race, religion, political views, faith in God, social status, age, financial situation, etc. Addiction is the great equalizer for all people. Many people won’t or can’t take advantage of these services offered for a number of reasons. Help is available. Time to take your life back from addiction.
