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.

Addiction can take many shapes and forms. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, relationships, shopping, gambling, food or sex have become a symptom of a society looking to escape from our pain. Fear of facing these facts can be overwhelming and denying to our addictions will continue to cause pain. Finally facing our addictions is not something that we have to do alone.

Addiction is a symptom of underlying pain and trauma. It's the need separate and self medicate from this pain and people often use substances and impulsive behaviors to escape. Then the vicious cycle begins of getting attached to a negative behavior, becoming compulsive , craving it, and losing everything because of it. It's a vicious cycle of trying to fill the emptiness. Grasping at a moment of pleasure only reinforces the attachment which continues the suffering. Allow me help you help you break the cycle . But first you must have a willingness to surrender your old behaviors and be open to new ideas and strategies. I am here if you want the help. I hope to see you soon!

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.

I provide a thorough therapy approach when it comes to various addictions. Often addictions are an indirect result of other life crises. I make certain that the client and I get to the heart of the addiction through establishing clear-cut short-term and long-term goals and addressing the root of the addiction itself. It is found that once you get to the bottom-line of why a person chose their specific addiction that by focusing on the causes, there can be strength found for working out the issues that may result in a person falling off the wagon- so that an individual will admit the problem, take initial steps for curing the problem, and omit the influences that feed the addiction.

Are you becoming concerned about your drinking or other compulsive behaviors (shopping, pornography, gambling...). If you are concerned - you would be wise to address it now. Addiction and compulsions tends to run in families, but the rate is about 25% vs 10 % in the general population, and there is some debate about addiction as a primarily genetic disorder. Some researchers point out that simply witnessing a parent drink in response to stress increases a child’s likelihood of choosing to drink in response to stress. Addictions and compulsions numb feelings- not just the bad feelings but all feelings. Which is the main reason people develop addictions and compulsions. Counseling Helps
