Any type of addiction is a coping mechanism to help manage a need that wasn't or isn't being met. I believe that in order to help with any addiction, it is critical to figure out what the 'why' of the addiction is. Once the 'why' is uncovered then I work with my clients to help them give themselves what they need, what they were missing. Often inner child work is involved in helping to get through an addiction. My belief is that relapse is part of the process, it is all information and I treat relapse as such. Part of the healing with addiction is healing the shame that comes with the effect the addiction has had.

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 cannot be completely understood by education alone. So many people are instructed to just stop doing it or just break the habit. Neural pathways once formed provide us with the equivalent to wheel ruts that in our thinking that we default to time and time again. We can with behaviour modification haul ourselves out of the wheel rut, but that wheel rut remains there waiting for us to fall back into when we are vulnerable in moments where we choose to medicate ourselves with our own addiction. Understanding how to rid ourselves of the wheel rut is part of the dual diagnosis addressing addictions - all of them.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L7J 1G8 - Nearby to Erin.

We all strive to avoid painful experiences and we can use a variety of things to take away our pain. However our downfall begins when we continuously rely on this vice to feel something, to get rid of a painful emotion, or to control our reality. I specialize in treating substance addictions where drugs or alcohol are holding you in place despite your best intentions to break the cycle. When in treatment, I see you as a multifaceted person, looking beyond the addiction as a small component of your identity and self-worth. I want to work with you to accept instead of fighting the past, embrace the present moment, move past relapse, and commit to your personal goals of recovery.

In L9W 1E1 - Nearby to Erin.

Let's face it, we all have some kind of addiction. Whether it is illegal or legal substances (like sugar or coffee), we all face this challenge to a greater or lesser degree. Guilt & shame will drive us further from ourselves & others. Armed with responsibility & a well stocked emotional toolbox, self management can be obtained and maintained. This is all very doable, with support and commitment to change.

In N0B 1T0 - Nearby to Erin.

We view addictions compassionately, as a symptom of unresolved emotional pain or trauma, and offer an alternative to traditional AA/12-step models. Our therapists can support you in the journey towards processing and healing the underlying hurts that are resulting in addictions as a coping strategy. Together, we can build the emotional regulation, distress tolerance and impulse management skills on the inside that can reduce the reliance on addictions on the outside, so that pain isn't so overwhelming. We are trauma-focused and can help you navigate the complex interplay of shame, triggers, anxiety, secrecy, codependency, body sensations, relationship dynamics and relapse patterns.

Registered Psychotherapist

In N1M 1H8 - Nearby to Erin.

I am able to help with substance, alcohol & process addictions such as shopping, gambling, sex, porn and so on. The benefit to working with me is that I am a recovering addict of 10 years, so I understand how hard it is to ask for help and to try and change. I also understand the complex layers of addiction and the battle to stay clear of it. And I most definitely understand the guilt and shame associated when we are engaged in our addiction and what it does to the people that love us the most. I have years of experience with addictions and mental health issues. I believe in both abstinence and harm reduction as an approach to addictions. Call for a FREE 30 minute consultation today.
