As a CADC (Certified Alcohol/Drug Counselor) I have experience working with clients dealing with substance abuse history, and focus on obtaining and maintaining sobriety, relapse prevention skills, as well as addressing underlying core issues and spiritual growth from a 12-step perspective, so that effective lifestyle changes are a part of the recovery process. I also work with family members, resentment and codependent traits, to assist the change process and healing in clients' family dynamics as well.

Doing something despite its harmful effects on you is addiction. Craving or having a strong desire to do this behavior (when you try not to) is called withdrawal. You know if this describes your relationship to a substance (drugs, alcohol, food), or an activity (sex, gambling, internet). You can't hide behind so-called denial. You know. You fact that you searched for the word "addiction" (that's how you found me), tells you that you know. If you are searching because you have a friend or love one that you suspect has a problem, you have a choice to make. Will you hide your suspicions or will you tell them to get some help? I know addictions. Whatever your reason for reading this, I can help you decide what you want to do.

I often observe what is called "the human magnet" syndrome...this is when an individual finds themselves in a pattern of being drawn to the same type of person over and over again. The magnetic pull may be to someone who is an addict, impulsive, abusive, neurotic or another destructive relational pattern. We call this pattern, or magnetic pull codependency. I have a soft spot for people who find themselves in this pattern. I also want to tell you that you can get yourself unstuck and unleashed! I would love to coach and counsel you on how to do that! Bringing your best self to the world is your most important lifework! Call me today so I can support you in that sacred journey.

I treat all kinds of addictions: sexual, pornography, internet pornography, and gambling. My approach involves a step-wise diagnosis and analysis of the problem. Rule out other diagnoses. Rule out all the risk factors and determine if the individual needs hospitalization if he or she is substance abuser. While treating all addictions including drugs and alcohol I like to get the family involved.

Addiction comes in many shapes and sizes. Often when one stops one addition, it starts up somewhere else. Once sobriety has been achieved, then the individual can begin the work on developmental issues, relationships and codependency. Addiction may never be "cured", but, the client can practice recovery for the rest of their lives without all the deleterious effects of addiction.

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.

Addiction is problem that affects individuals, their families, and friends. However, many addicts deny that they have a problem and refuse to seek help. In some cases, the family finds itself unable to help. In our sessions we first assist the addict and then when possible, the family. Individual counseling is confidential and personal and involves the counselor meeting face to face with the addict to discuss 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.
