Addiction can be a mask to coping with other complicated issues and emotions in your life. I would assist the indivudal through therapy by giving them distress tolerance skills, validating but not always agreeing with their views, and help them to accept what they cannot change while changing what they have control over. Together we will unveil and understand their triggers thereby empowering them to battle against the addiction. Creating short term goals to build their confidence by utilizing other health coping mechanisms and then long term goals to develop a pathway to new transformation.

I help clients gain control over addictions, deepening insight into underlying forces driving the behaviour, and increasing motivation for change. Using Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), take a collaborative person-centered approach, helping insights emerge throughout the interaction. Throughout the process, clients gain coping skills specifically targeted to their specific situation.

I have been helping individuals overcome their addictions since 1996. I have helped individuals who were addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling and pornography. Given my experience working with addictions, I am able to determine if my counseling can be sufficient and or when other interventions would be more appropriate. If it is determined that outpatient or residential treatment is required, I have provided the support and assistance to individuals in preparing for and applying to appropriate treatment centres.

Addiction often begins as a response to stresses or losses in life, but can rapidly assume a life of its own. The primary task is usually to enhance and support abstinence, although it is not helpful if this turns into a power struggle, or an opportunity for self-deception. But with abstinence as a guiding principle, it is then useful to guide toward alternate activities and social interaction (using support groups and other forms of naturally occurring help) as well as dealing with any emotional triggers of the addictive behaviour, or sequelae of the attempts to abstain. It is usually important to find out about the social/familial context, and any losses or bad feelings that occur there.

Addictions can help us get through some challenges and maybe even have saved our life. Then there comes a time when addictions seem to get in the way and cause more trouble and more problems. Therapy can help to find different ways of coping. Learning other ways of handing stress and conflict helps quiet the compulsions. Counselling will help you take charge of your life.

A complex issue requiring discerning assessment. The most severe entail extensive brain changes however all have neurological aspects and individual susceptibility is an important factor. Yet esp non-substance based (eg, porn, gambling, food, sex, gaming) addictions are reversible through therapy . The approach in practice calls for amending this broad general term and defining it by how it functions: as a selected ‘reward system’ for managing past stressors that is now habituated, or for relieving current stressors impulsively/efficiently. However resulting in unrewarding consequences. From this perspective, many accurately focused interventions can be applied to change one's reward choice.

What we become addicted to and why is less important than what the addiction is doing for us right now. We wouldn't be addicted if it wasn't serving some purpose. When we look and the emotional pain, stress, and overwhelm the addiction is helping us cope with, we get to the root of the problem. When we see that the addiction isn't a disease or a choice, we see it as a method we have been using to cope with a problem.

All of us experience addiction as part of our daily routine. However, when that addiction takes over and we loose sight of our priorities, it can destroy our lives. When a substance or habits interfere with our logical thinking and we prioritize our need to satisfy that craving over everything else it can ruin our life. Our relationship, families, friends and work can suffer and we often isolate ourselves to feed our addictions without judgment. I offer a safe place to honestly explore the impact of your addiction and to find ways to manage your urges to set you free. An addictions eliminates your ability to choose your actions, I can help you regain your strength to choose a healthy life

If you come to me because YOU want to end your substance use or behaviour, I can help you. If you are still struggling with whether or not you want to quit, I can help you with that as well! I may suggest a rehab if that is what seems best. If you are already sober and are trying to remain that way, I will offer you the numerous tools of relapse prevention, including self-care, having a sponsor, and practising mindfulness.

There are many excellent addiction centres and counselling groups that address addiction. I offer my clients a personalize approach to addiction based on the Theory of Change. If you are ready to address your addiction it is a good time to come for counselling. In my practise I have found that some people have made multiple attempts at overcoming their addiction. But those who keep trying have often found success. Combining counselling and a support system can give clients a hopeful foundation upon which they can overcome their addiction. Counselling also helps to identify if there are past experiences that have contributed to the abuse of a substance.

We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

While I'm not an addiction specialist, I do have training in this area, and I can work with you to reduce or stop your use of addictive substances. We will work together to find the deep drives that feed the addiction. For example, is your addiction helping you feel less alone, less worthless, less powerless, or is it numbing some specific pain. We would look at how the addiction is affecting your life and how to use the supports around you to change your habits.

Sometimes it's hard to see when something we enjoy is beginning to get out of control. It's not uncommon that loved ones are the first to point out that our use of something has become problematic. Alcohol, opiates, sex... if you are not sure if your use of something has crossed the line, call me. I offer non-judgemental counselling for people who struggle with symptoms of addiction. While social work cannot diagnose, I can most certainly assist you as you continue to explore your challenges at this time.
