Addiction is an insidious disease; substances promise solace. but provide utter wreckage. This is often difficult to see, and even when a person has acceptance of the nature of his or her illness, change can be more than difficult. I provide empathic, direct therapy to clients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. This is my personal and professional passion, I too was once in your seat. Hope is here.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 19102 - Nearby to Swarthmore.

I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Most counseling sessions are conducted outdoors while walking on the Pennypack, Neshaminy or Core Creek hike & bike trail. Scientists have long known a workout can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows that exercise can have a deeper and more lasting effect, and thus allows me another avenue in which to provide a unique experience for my clients.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Addiction Therapist

In 19106 - Nearby to Swarthmore.

I specialize in working with women with substance use disorders and addiction. I am personally in recovery from an addiction, studied addictions counseling in my master's program and was the lead therapist at a drug & alcohol treatment center for over two years. My approach to addiction is unique because of my personal and professional experience. I believe almost all addiction stems from trauma on some level, whether it is "typical" trauma or something difficult that happened. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and understand that abstinence may not be the best path for everyone, though it is what worked for me.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 19468 - Nearby to Swarthmore.

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!
