I normally will act more as a coach than a therapist for alcoholism. This is because I believe strongly that intensive outpatient treatment programs (or inpatient with detox), attendance at AA, and working through the 12 steps with a sponsor is the most effective approach. For sexual addiction I go through Patrick Carnes workbook with the client (Tiger Woods therapist) and require that they participate in SA, Faithful and True, or at least one other recovery group. In general I am trying to help the person stop the behavior, but to also understand it and get inner healing for the root causes of the addiction. Then I help create a "trajectory" of recovery, which is a pathway for healing.

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.

Addiction does not just include drugs and alcohol, but also gambling, sex & pornography, food, shopping/ spending, and the list goes on. It is even possible to be addicted to a person or relationship which is called codependency. There are many theories on the origins of addiction and why it occurs in some and not others as well as different avenues of finding healing from underlying issues. If you are struggling in this area, God understands you do not want to give in to these urges and impulses.
