Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your 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.

Walter Masterson, LCSW
Addiction Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 10021 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Addiction Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10003 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

There are all kinds of addictions, from substance abuse to internet pornography. In each case, the bottom line is that a person is dealing with feelings of depression, anger or anxiety in a destructive way. They drink, gamble or look at pornography whenever they feel stress, but do not face the feelings that are causing the stress and work through them. I encourage addicts to make use of 12-step programs in combination with psychotherapy. When they stop denying and commit themselves to both, they quickly make progress.

Craig Beck, ABNLP, ABHYP, DhP
Addiction Counselor

Craig Beck, ABNLP, ABHYP, DhP

Alcohol Addiction Therapist & Mentor

In 11105 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

Stop Drinking Expert offers an alternative to embarrassing twelve step group meetings, expensive inpatient treatment centers and ineffective willpower. Our approach to treating alcohol addiction is to start with the subconscious conditioning that has gradually built up around the drug. Often addicts are only told that they have an alcohol use disorder and must never drink again. The problem with this abrupt form of 'treatment' is the client remains psychologically anchored to using alcohol as a coping mechanism and as a tool to help alleviate negative emotional states. The Stop Drinking Expert method helps the problem drinker to understand what is driving their need to drink.

Mitchell Milch, LCSW
Addiction Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

An excellent way to understand addiction is that it is a problem of self-regulation. This might be a problem of self-discipline, resilience, self-soothing, attention, etc. Many folks use drugs of choice to provide functions they feel helpless to do for themselves. The therapeutic alliance becomes the provider of regulatory capacities not internalized early in life. A safe and secure attachment permits the patient to cultivate a healthy dependency on the therapist without re-living the fears of judgments and abandonments that interfered with them depending on caregivers who may or may not have been able to model and instruct what was needed.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor

In 07058 - Nearby to Bloomfield.

What do you do if 12-step based treatment and AA or NA aren’t a good fit for you? You may want to explore cutting back on your drinking. You may not be ready to stop using marijuana but need support to look at how using is impacting your life. You may know you need to stop, and are abstinent, but need help to develop a long-term recovery plan with alternatives to AA or NA. A good life without drugs or alcohol is possible with or without 12-step meeting attendance.
