All addictions are the result of a "hole" or void in your soul (mind and emotions). What are you trying to replace by using alcohol, drugs, gambling, complulsive internet, sex? This ministry is able to help you identify what is lacking in your life, the "hole" that you are filling with a dangerous addiction. Once identified, we can do the work of bringing healing and wholeness to your soul. Every addiction will cripple you, destroy the life and destiny you were born to have and has the power to cause you an early death. Don't wait to deal with your addiction. Face it, come out of denial and contact me today!!

Early into my practice I realized that individuals tend to gravitate to addictive behaviors often as a result of relational pain: feeling abandoned or isolated, not receiving sufficient empathy and attunement from important people in their lives, experiencing loss of an important other, or sustaining other forms of relational disappointment. Many people turn to a substance or habit that will provide soothing or distraction from this pain. In our work together, it is absolutely essential to explore the relational components to one's addictions. Often, many people find that recovery groups (such as AA, Celebrate Recovery) provide additional relational healing for them, especially with God.

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 (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.

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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Addiction Counselor

In 33778 - Nearby to Gulfport.

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.
