I have helped those that have a dual diagnosis of some substance use and perhaps Depression, some use and how it has negatively impacted your life,relationships, job etc. I do not work with severe alcoholism or addictions as this is a specialty that you need to find a credentialed professional for. Let's talk and be real honest so we can work,together to help,lead you out of bondage or lead you to someone who can.

I have been in the addictions field for many years, and have experience working with clients at the most well known substance abuse centers in Massachusetts. Someone once estimated I have helped over 15,000 people get the sobriety they so desperately sought.

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.

Psychotherapist/Clinical Hypnotherapist

In 02144 - Nearby to Reading.

I have specialized in the field of substance abuse and addiction for over three decades. For several years I ran groups for alcohol/opioid dependent adults who were newly sober. I am familiar with both 12-Step Programs and Smart Recovery and I remain a firm believer that it takes a village to get and remain clean and sober. In my private practice today, I work with quite a number of people in recovery. I ONLY work with people who are in recovery to aid and assist them to live fuller and richer spiritual lives. Helping people to rediscover or discover their spirituality is a joy (albeit it sometimes challenging) and is a delight to bear witness to!

Addictions can involve substances, like alcohol or drugs, or behaviors, such as gambling or sex//pornography. Addictions destroy the quality of life of the addict's friends, family and work colleagues, and lead to the emotional, spiritual, even physical, death of the addict him/herself. They are very widespread and very serious. The good news: once addictive behavior ends, improvement starts almost immediately. An experienced addictions counselor will assess whether an addict needs detox, an intensive rehab /recovery group, a 12-step group, or individual counseling. Counseling can also help the families of addicts recover from the damage of living with addiction.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 33701 - Nearby to Reading.

I work with sexual addiction issues in context of complete history and what motivated client to call. The collateral emotional damage to self and family, and sometimes the legal risks are what bring clients to seek help. It is not a short term therapy. The focus is on the one who initiates the call for help, be it the family member or the person with the problem behavior. I encourage some couple and family involvement, the appropriateness of involvement being decided upon in collaborative manner between me and the client. I assess and refer chemical addiction clients for specific addiction treatment before other issues can be addressed.

I can refer you to LADAC, psychologists, social workers and others who treat substance abuse (drug and alcohol abuse) if that is what you are seeking. I do not provide these services per se, though of course these issues emerge in the course of individual therapy and marriage counseling. However, other behavioral "addictions" are addressed in my practice. So-called "internet addiction," "sexual addiction," "workaholism," "Facebook addiction," and so on. I put these in quotes because, intellectually, I debate the meaningfulness and utility of calling things "addictions." However, these are sources of problems in people's lives regardless of the labels, and can be challenging to change...
