Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.

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.

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

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

The present focus of my practice is not on addictions, although that is part of my training and previous emphases (including dual diagnoses) and I maintain currency as a licensed clinical addictions counselor. If you are seeking individual treatment for addictions (especially if connected to other issues), I would welcome talking about this with you to help determine if I would be the right person for you to work with. My general approach is from a systems approach combined with pastoral counseling. Assistance can also be offered for those who are seeking to deepen the spiritual dimension of their recovery. I look forward to your journey to wholeness and peace.

Psychotherapist

Cyber and video game addictions or abuse are a relative recent phenomena. This is a issue that effects youth and adults. It can cause loss of sleep, social isolation and result in neglecting basic and important responsibilities. Through psychotherapy we will explore the need for the escape, what is the secondary gain, as well as working on tools to help change the behaviors that have become routine and habit.

My work with addictions is a highly compassionate approach, exploring with the client what the stressors or conditions have been which has led to addictive behaviors. These behaviors often affect the entire family. Getting to know the various aspects, thoughts and feelings of the client which are being affected by addiction can lead to healing and a restoration of health and balance.

The purpose of Addiction Counseling is to help the client identify for him or herself if there is an addiction present. If this is the case, a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques are utilized as well as mindfulness exercises to help with focusing and how to cope with difficult emotions in healthy ways to become abstinent. In addition, there is a focus on stengths, and what the client has done in the past to abstain from using the substance of choice. Thus, the client can try and implement at least some of these techniques again and stay away from triggers and past negative behaviors that led to relapse. There is also focus on self-esteem building and how to prevent relapse in the future once the client is abstinent.

Addiction Counselor

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

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.

Addiction Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.
