Addiction Counselor

Licensed Psychologist

I work a lot with clients who are dealing with addictions - whether it be to a substance, food, work, or relationships. While the specific content of an addiction might be a mystery to friends and family (they might have never used heroine) the experience of addiction is common to us all. We all, from time to time, have tried to use something or someone to make us feel better. At the core, that is what an addiction is. However, the problem it that it only works in the short run - in the long run when we use substances or people to distract us from our problems or pain, we end up crashing. I help people deal with the core issue so that they can live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life.

Licenced Professional Counselor

Working with addiction is a large part of my practice. I have past experience running an addiction intensive outpatient group. I work with people who have addictions and family members. In therapy I give clients the knowledge and support they need to get sober and stay that way. I believe in a positive approach that stresses creating a happy full life to replace your addiction and treating additional problems, like depression, that contribute to addictions. I give clients and families help in creating a stable happy life.

Addiction Counselor

A psychoanalytic approach to addiction creates a safe space for you to speak to your relationship to the patterns of addiction and to the complex issues surrounding addiction. With time, you are able to reorient to enjoyment, pleasure, desire, to restructure your relationship to your self and to those around you. Psychoanalytic work for addiction does not replace crisis intervention in acute situations but can be undertaken in support of stabilization or once crisis-stabilization has been achieved.

One of the great understatements of our time is that Addictions are difficult to treat. Although there are certain commonalities to most addictions e.g. functionally autonomous and obsessive-compulsive behaviors, which must be addressed, in my office there is no one-size-fits-all approach and each therapy is tailor-made for the client. Please call to make an appointment for a consultation, so that we can meet and discuss what is going on in your life and whether or not I feel that I can be of assistance to you. Also, please note that I do not work with drug, including alcohol, addictions.

Addiction Counselor

Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

Addiction Counselor

Alex Kohl, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Doraville

I have worked with clients with a substance use disorder for over a decade. Substance use disorders are not all the same, and I believe that clients experiencing difficulties with alcohol and/or substances should be treated as such. I work to treat the whole person, and can help the client create their own substance abuse recovery program. If a higher level of care is needed, I can also help to find the right treatment center for you.

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.
