My approach toward addiction is to discover, with the client, what it has been accomplishing for him or her. In other words, what the purpose of the addiction is, its specific cause. The factor or factors that have been keeping it in place. I also tend to use cognitive-semantic processing and skills training because, very often, a person's unexamined thoughts and beliefs about self, life, and addiction may be an obstacle to his or her recovery. Examining these from a new and fresh perspective can bring about renewed insight, opportunity, and motivation.

Addiction (alcohol, food, illegal/legal/prescription drug abuse, gambling, “cutting”, Internet/gaming, high risk trading, etc.) takes a tremendous toll on individuals, families, friends, employees & employers. How did this start…what keeps it going…why does relapse happen…how do I let go of the addicted person…am I enabling…I can’t afford to keep helping… how do I recover from the lost time…Questions abound. I provide outpatient therapy to assist clients in breaking the grip of addiction with individuals, couples, families, organizations & significant others by developing a game plan addressing roots, habit cues, cravings to replace with strengthened, productive life goals & patterns.

I do an in depth assessment to see the complete picture of the addiction as well as other issues that surround it. It is important to stop or interrupt the compulsive behaviors involved in addiction and then work on the underlying issues that fuel the addiction. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches when working with someone with an addiction to find what works best for that individual.

Approximately 9% of Americans suffer with some sort of substance abuse problem, many of whom are able to work and maintain a somewhat stable lifestyle. However, if you have struggled with your ability to "drink normally" or have found yourself abusing your medication or other substances, it may be time to seek professional support to discuss how your life can become more manageable. Additionally, if your loved one is abusing drugs or alcohol and you are in need of support to cope with their addiction I also provide therapy and counseling to those in need of caregiver support.

Addiction Counselor

Ken Donaldson, LMHC, CAP

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Addiction Counselor

Within driving distance of Anna Maria

I started my work in this field primarily focusing on addictive disorders. In the last 30 years the magnitude of addictive behaviors have exploded. What used to be primarily drug and alcohol addiction now covers many different types of addictive behaviors including sex, spending, shopping, food, gambling and the internet, just to name a few of the more common ones. My approach when working with people who are struggling with addiction is first help them maintain a level of sobriety or abstinence from their addictive behaviors. We create an individualized treatment plan with an emphasis on relapse prevention that often includes support groups and family or couples therapy.

Whether you've recently decided to seek treatment, or your loved ones are insisting on it, you can be assured you won't encounter any judgment or blame here. If alcohol or drug abuse is causing you problems like declining job performance or joblessness, arrests, accidents, withdrawal symptoms, broken relationships, and associated medical and/or psychiatric illnesses, it may be time to consider treatment. If your problem drinking or using is causing marital discord, financial problems, depression or anxiety, you'd be wise to see me for a comprehensive Substance Abuse Evaluation. Together we can discuss your treatment options & get you started on your journey towards wellness & RECOVERY!

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.

Overcoming addiction is a unique struggle. I utilize several forms of therapy including Motivational Interviewing techniques and behavioral techniques to help people with this issue. Addiction recovery requires a holistic style. If one focusses only on the behavioral aspect or only on the support aspect, or only on any one or two aspects, it is not likely to have lasting results. Often people with addiction also have depression, anxiety or trauma related issues to work on. These need to be worked on simultaneously to addiction recovery.
