Addiction Counselor

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Brewster

I began my career in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, and believe that addictions primarily express difficulties people have in tolerating strong emotions. This is a fundamental issue, and the use of substances often masks it and instead becomes the primary focus of living. I will help you to explore how your "love affair" with your substance of choice brings you anxiety relief in the short term and defeats your interest and ability to grow and develop in the long term. We will also discuss the value of 12 step programs.

Addictions impact so many people in so many forms, including their loved ones, often in Co-Dependent relationships with the addict. But Addictions serve a role and meet a need, and that has to be identified and alternatives found, for treatment to succeed. Many people avoid and hide from pain and suffering in their lives. With support you can face it and get your life, future, and dreams back.

Addiction Counselor

Yudit Maros, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Hypnotherapist

I view addictions as an extreme way to cope with one's own feelings, by disconnecting from them. I will guide you to safely reconnect with your feelings and trust that just because they hurt, they will still help you to heal. Connection with yourself is where joy is too, not just pain! I will help you to heal any traumas that are often at the bottom of addictions, so you may lose the need for external soothing agents (so to speak), and learn to rely on your Self and other in a healthy way when feeling bad. Addictions teach you bad things, I will teach you how to LOVE yourself, and be free.

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.

Marie Fennell, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I like to work with clients, including adolescents, to help them on their journey to wellness as they overcome addictions. In addition to substance and alcohol addictions, I also like to work with clients who have addictions that are rooted in technology, such as addictions to video games, online chat rooms, video chatting, social media sites, and sexting.

Addiction Counselor

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Brewster

My approach to clients with addiction issues depends on the nature of the addiction (alcohol and drugs, gambling, internet, smoking, and other compulsive behaviors). Treatment includes addressing the client's denial, employing cognitive behavior therapy, sending clients to AA or NA, and may also involve bringing in members of the client's family to help clients understand the ramifications of their addictions and the necessity to change.

Addiction Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

When a person is struggling with addiction, misusing alcohol or substances, they are not well mentally, physically, or spiritually. A person does not have to drink (or use) every day to have a problem. To begin recovery, one must first admit there is a problem, and then be willing to make changes and accept help. People CAN and do recover and improve their lives if recovery is made their number one priority....when it comes to sobriety, "half measures avail (us) nothing" - or at least not enough to fully recover. My addiction treatment approach is Integrative: this means that along w/ individual therapy, we integrate other therapeutic healing modalities and supports for an optimal outcome.
