Helping people overcome addiction is my specialty. I've had great success helping many clients overcome alcohol abuse and drug abuse. The framework I use, which is supported by cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology, proposes that the key to overcoming substance abuse is to overcome the emotional addictions -- such as, for example, addictions to anger, guilt, or anxiety -- that underlie the substance abuse. Until people have overcome their key emotional addictions, they will continue to be at risk for destructive compensations or symptoms of those emotional addictions, such as substance abuse.

While I am not a CASAC, I have worked with numerous men and women as they address their struggles with alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. Support is such a powerful part of coming to grips with any addiction. You need to feel that you are not alone. In addition to a therapy environment, I do believe it is important to engage in a group dedicated to the particular challenge at hand. So important to not feel that you are in this alone.

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.

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

Patricia Schneider, Dr., Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Mount Vernon

I address prior psychoactive substance dependence addictions, sexual addictions, bulimia nervosa, pathological gambling, internet addiction, nicotine addiction, compulsive shopping or buying. Inherent to this is targeting mood, anxiety, and any accompanying Attention Deficit Disorders, as deficits in affect and self-regulatory functioning usually precede and increase the development of the aforementioned addictions. We will explore your tendency to engage in pleasure-producing behavior characterized by impaired control and continuation despite harmful consequences with the aim of eliminating the addiction and substituting it/them with healthy endeavors and feelings.

Our approach to working with clients that struggle with substance abuse is one of Harm Reduction around current use. We believe that the focusing on healthy living, building support networks, and processing through issues that feed addiction help clients gain control over their lives and their substance use. We do not believe in reprimending my clients for failing to remain sober or working from an abstinence only model. If abstinence models have not worked for you, We am here to help in a new way. We are available for a free 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether counseling with us is right for you - to schedule, email info@nassauwellness.com or call/text (516) 387-5143.

Addiction Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

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.

Addiction issues are wide and varied. Be it alcohol or drug abuse, gambling, food, sexualizing or the internet, substance and situational addictions can consume our lives. Part of the difficulty is understanding one's journey through the continuum of addiction...trying to understand where that shift materialized from indulgence to over-indulgence to true addiction. Besides a behavioral approach we need to understand why we entered this cycle of dependency. Once we begin to take our lives back we are on the road to independence and self regard, the two best weapons that protect us from returning to our addictive cycle.

My approach to treating addictions (including substance abuse, sex, gambling, internet and food) is to assist people with understanding the underlying roots that drive their addictive behaviors.

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.
