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.

There is a reason why you have turned to a substance to numb the pain. It may be too painful to deal with the raw emotions. The good new is that there is much evidence that Neurofeedback can deal with the emotional issues in a safe and comfortable environment and you won't need to dig up the past. All you do is sit and listen or watch a screen and the computer does the rest. Also our introductory program to understanding the 12 steps can be a good first step to getting a support system in place.

Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT)

36 Brookshire Court - Suite 200 Brookshire Centre, Bedford, Nova Scotia B4A 4E9 | 902-346-2158

I am an addiction specialist with over 20 years of addiction therapy experience and a PhD in addiction psychology. I use the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model and a holistic approach (in layman's terms - I work with each person as a unique individual). Some people benefit from 12 step approaches, other's do not. I have a wide range of tools in my tool box that help me to fine tune the treatment to the person - not the other way around. Recent brain imaging studies have convinced me that addiction is in the brain, not the bottle - and so I work extensively with people who have "process addictions" where gambling, sex, porn, internet, shopping, spending, and or gaming, are a problem.

Addictions and all compulsive behaviours can take over our lives and waste our money, damage our relationships and wreck our health and maybe even get us in jail. There are many kinds of addictions, gambling, substance, sexual, some phobias, porn, internet, cutting and many more. Specialized addictions counseling or medical care is advised when appropriate. Supportive, non judgemental, compassionate counseling with Dr. Graham will help you get insight into why you turn to harmful addictive habits. You will learn to identify the needs you are trying to meet and learn ways to resolve these needs with more healthy behaviours. Twelve step programs and other support groups may be discussed.

My experience includes family support, mental health, & bereavement issues.

I also have a strong background in social work as well as counselling skills & I have worked with psycho-educational groups, goal-oriented and narrative approaches as well as systems theory. My counselling style embraces creativity and integrative approaches & creative expression - art therapy, in particular, with its use of symbolic language - gives opportunity for indirect narratives is very apt for helping people through difficult transitions and with addictions.
