Addiction can be a real challenge to beat - and most often my patients have tried everything from cold turkey to AA. There's a new way of thinking about addiction that can inform your treatment with powerful outcomes. Recent research out of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver BC Canada has us approaching treatment and sobriety in a more comprehensive way that is well beyond just AA or those white knuckle approaches. Let's sit down and talk. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, it is time for change - and let's work together to see if this new approach can finally make the difference for you. 1-800-699-3396

Registered Psychotherapist, Addiction Specialist

Often times, coping strategies such as drugs and alcohol, misuse of medication, gambling and sex no longer provide the escape or relief that they once did. Their use may be causing distress for either you, your employer or those who you care about. You may be reading this wondering if you have a problem, or perhaps you are sure that you do. Both are great places to start. Together, and through the creation of a safe space, we will work to explore your concerns and thoughts, creating a plan on how to get you to where you want to be. I use a trauma informed, strength-based approach to establishing the goals of treatment and next steps.

Addictive behaviours may feel like comfort to the vacuum left by aloneness or detachment. The feeling of aloneness can start early. Children require a lot of emotional interaction to develop trust that their needs for support and caring will be met. If they don’t experience positive attachments, they may turn their needs for love and caring into physical cravings, which are easier to fill, and develop relationships with their addictions because they're more in control of them than those they look to for love and attention. I create a therapeutic environment in which individuals can deepen their understanding of their feelings and learn to trust their inner resources to connect with others.

Clinical Psychologist

114 Maitland Street, Toronto, Ontario

Approaches to addressing addictions really vary from one treatment setting to another. My approach focuses on helping people manage their addictions. Not everyone chooses abstinence, and not everyone needs to. In fact, for many problem drinkers learning to become a controlled drinker can offer a more sustainable way of living. I tend to work with people to help them manage their addictions in a way that is sustainable, and in a way that works for their personal situation.

Addiction impacts mental and physical health and can deteriorate relationships and your overall quality of life. Working together, I can help you manage your addiction and understand and contain the distress that causes this behaviour in the first place. The use of a strengths based, harm reduction approach, incorporating Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Breif Therapy (SFBT), and Humanistic strategies, I can help you to understand the origins of your addiction and help you cultivate insight about your triggers and help you harness your inner strengths to master your emotions and increase your self-esteem.

Using substances or activities in an obsessive and/or compulsive manner is a way of trying to escape ourselves. We do these things for good reason, but we don't always know why. This is where I come in. I will help you to find alternative ways of calming and nurturing yourself. And then I will help you to face the demons you are running from. With my support, you will learn to be a good parent to yourself. As you repair your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others will grow. You will no longer feel banished to a lonely world of one. And you will once again feel connected to yourself and the wider community around you.

I have previously worked in the feild of substance abuse. I use a harm reduction philosophy and provide an empathic environment for you to process your pain/emotions. I also help people co-create a plan to reduce their use or change their use for the better that is best for them. Many people with substance abuse difficulties also have mental health issues which I can also help with. I can also assit with co-creating a relapse prevention plan.

Many research studies have confirmed that addictive behaviors are usually caused by underlying feelings of anxiety. In other words, if you have developed an addictive behavior (i. gambling, substance dependency, etc), there is great likelihood that you experience excess feelings of worry and anxiety. Psychotherapy can specifically offer you strategies to manage the addictive behavior while helping reduce the feelings of anxiety that fuel and perpetuate the addictive behavior. Typically therapeutic modalities that help anxiety management (Mindfulness stress reduction, EMDR) have promising effects on treating various types of addiction.

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.

There are many (many) perspectives on addiction. Most of the funding that goes into addiction research takes a disease-centred approach, and I'm not entirely convinced that is the healthiest way to look at it (or at least I would contend that it's not the only way). And there are many sorts of addictions that a client might develop, depending upon the substance (and the "substance" could be anything ranging from alcohol to internet pornography). An addiction is an unhealthy relationship that we can't let go of (for various reasons), and psychotherapy is a way to allow us to look at our triggers and try to piece together what "healthy" looks like.
