Being aware that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery, one that takes incredible courage and strength. Facing your addiction without making excuses or minimizing the problem can be overwhelming. If you’re ready to make a change and eager to seek help, you can overcome your addiction and build a satisfying life for yourself. The ability to differentiate the behavior from one’s worth will offer the individual a greater understanding and compassion for themselves.

Sadly, addiction is more than a surface issue. It’s any habit that controls you - your own healthy perspective or behaviour compromised. It can be: smoking, drinking, drugs, gambling, gaming, shopping, fetishes, cutting, porn, unsafe sex, unhealthy eating, self negating, bulimia, compulsive message checking, even too much time online. Elimination or control of such a habit is only a partial answer. There’s more going on. What led you to develop the addiction in the first place? In therapy a key issue I will help you look into is what you can do instead. You can realize why you came to lean on an unhealthy behaviour, then learn to Mindfully notice other options you have in the moment.

Merriam-Webster’s definition states: Addiction: a strong and harmful need to regularly have something (such as a drug) or do something (such as gamble). The key word is harmful. In this light, one could even postulate people can be addicted to arguing and fighting, to the chemicals released from the adrenal gland during "fight or flight"? Did you know the actual term “addiction” was originally used in the slave trade? (S. Luper-Foy C. Brown (ed.) (1994). Drugs, Morality, and the Law. Garland). When a slave was sold to the “owner”, they were said to be addicted to their master which meant “tied to”. Well, if you and I can be tied to something… yes… we can be untied! www.jeffpacker.com

There are a variety of commonalities to all addictions. In my work with you, I will help you to identify what triggers your addictive behaviour and how to manage your temptation. I will educate you on what is considered a healthy relationship to your addiction of choice. You will also be connected to a series of resources outside of the therapy for additional support. Our work will also focus on helping you to develop a relationship to yourself, so that you learn to love, like and accept yourself.

Are you experiencing difficulties with alcohol and substance use or abuse? Are you concerned that you have an addiction? Perhaps you are family member or friend who is concerned that someone close to you has an addiction. In therapy, we can explore your alcohol or drug use and its impact on your life and relationships. Together we can look at what decisions might be beneficial for you and your goals and we can work to unearth what is underlying some of the choices you have made and continue to make in your life. As a non-judgmental, caring professional, I can work with you to help reach the goals you set for yourself. I provide support and guidance to concerned family members and friends.

"Addiction", whether it be over-using drugs, internet, sex, etc., is a means of seeking pleasure in order to mask difficult feelings and thoughts that you may be dealing with. Sometimes, the pain of difficult or traumatic experiences becomes so intense that we unknowingly turn to unhealthy means of gratification. It is my goal to collaboratively, delicately and thoughtfully explore the underlying reasons of your excessive use of drugs, internet, etc., and support the working through and acknowledgement of the feelings and thoughts associated with the underlying reasons. If you are persistent in obtaining health and a happier existence, you will experience healing and release from pain.

Addiction is extremely complicated, painful and overpowering. You're a great person! One who wishes to have a 'normal life'. But it's not happen. You're trapped, unable to break the chains. You have tried your very best to break the chains, but they are too strong, too big. This is where I come in. Allow me to help you. The 2 of us have a greater chance to break the chains than you have by youself. I have seen many people secure themselves from various types of addiction(s). Call me. I will coach you to freedom.

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.

Along with a more conventional form of therapy for addictions, I will also focus on the cause of addictive behavior and will utilize less conventional methods of ferreting out the conditions, criteria, and even purpose (how does addictive behavior benefit you?) behind the behavior. Addictions are a complicated issue, and the more the client understands the deeply rooted causes of their behavior the better chance he or she may have in controlling the condition. It isn't just about stopping the behavior but discovering the meaning behind the choices being made.
