When we hear about addictions, substance abuse is generally the type of addition that comes to mind. However, addictions to sex, shopping, porn, internet, video games, work, exercise, and gambling are common examples. Addiction to any of these will have an impact on the way you live your life. My specialized training has been in the treatment of gambling. When I practiced in California, I was a certified provider through the California Problem Gambling Treatment Service Program, California Office of Problem Gambling. My initial training, plus follow up training and experience with individuals with gambling addictions, have helped to increase my effectiveness.

One of the most amazing things is witnessing people free themselves from the depths of addiction. I use multiple treatment approaches to first help an individual stabilize the addictive process. Then I help them work to fully understand the underlying reasons as to why they are addicted in the first place to help avoid relapse. Stopping is only one part of the process - understanding is another.

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.

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.

When working with people who suffer from addictions, I work with the client to help them understand what purpose the addiction serves. We identify how it has come to be and then learn to identify triggers and trigger responses. Clients are trained in managing their awareness and urges in order to take full control of their lives. We also work to create a plan for how to maintain mental wellness moving forward so that the addiction does not morph into another mental health issue.

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.

When struggling with an addiction one can feel hopeless. Treatment after treatment will seem to work for a time and then grow ineffective. My style of working with addictions is to combine short-term behavioral interventions to work to keep you safe and maintain employment, relationships or other significant areas of your life that may be affected, while working to understand the deeper issues and causes of destructive behaviors, unquenchable needs and hopeless feelings.

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.

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.

I teach the skills from DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and also use concepts and exercises from ACT(Acceptance Commitment Therapy). Both of these therapies mesh beautifully with the Twelve Step Programs. For instance, DBT and ACT emphasize acceptance, values, and meditation. I reinforce clients working their programs through the use of these therapies.
