The underlying issues and struggles are explored in a climate of safety and a non-judgmental setting. Whereas difficult feelings are discussed and dealt with but in new and constructive ways. It is with greater self-awareness of their thought patterns and behaviours ensuring accountability that prevents a high risk of relapse. Choosing personal behavioural goals of either abstinence or reduction in defining their successes proves rather empowering.

Gaining recovery from addiction will help you to feel empowered and more in control of how your life enfolds. You can begin to proactively choose beneficial goals and outcomes, rather than being at the mercy of a behaviour or a substance. Gaining the ability to live in the present--rather than, consciously or unconsciously, constantly focusing on capturing a future state promised by a substance or behaviour--can offer you new-found appreciation and joy in your everyday surroundings and bring you back to self-love.

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.

While substance use typically begins as recreational activity it can become habit forming and often develops addictive behaviors interfering with other areas of our lives, such as relationships, jobs, and finances. To increase awareness and insight into the reasons for using, I offer evidence-based treatment while providing you with options along the continuum of the Harm Reduction approach towards abstinence. We will explore any underlying emotional needs and relationships. By gaining insight to any ambivalent thoughts and feelings around changing patterns of substance misuse I will support you in the setting and achieving of personal goals.

Addiction can be a scary thing that is often surrounded by ambiguity and confusion: why do I continue to use when I know it is bad for me? Why do I want to use in the first place? Why cant I seem to stop using and why cant I change? In working with clients, step one of our work is figuring out the answers to these questions and figuring out why addiction occurs in the first place. After this, we explore tools, resources, and therapies that will best work for clients in helping them create the changes they need and to promote the lives they want.

Working through addiction and compulsive habits can be one of the most challenging things we ever have to do. Fortunately, our knowledge and understanding of this work has shifted to a trauma-informed approach that embraces healing the unique individual who is struggling with addiction rather than the addiction itself. As a therapist, I work with clients to cultivate an environment that will allow for a deeper exploration into understanding the important role the addictive habit has been playing in your life as we seek to transform the relationship you have with yourself in the process. Schedule a free consultation with me to ensure we are a good fit.
