Addiction is usually brought on by trying to avoid emotional pain. Our society teaches us to avoid and be ashamed of our emotions. We become disconnected trying not to feel sad or angry or afraid. If someone asked you right now how you feel, would you be able to answer? Where do you feel the emotion in your body? What color, shape, temperature and texture would it be? Learning to become fascinated with our emotions can help us face them. After all, you can't help how you feel, you can only choose how you behave. Working through emotional pain is the ultimate freedom from addiction.

Addition can keep you from doing what you should be doing. It can keep you from fulfilling your obligations, being productive and living a happy and healthy life. The stress that can come from not being productive and fulfilling obligations just makes things worse. Addiction counseling allows you to explore what you are currently dealing with and develop strategies for improvement.

From personal experience, I have a good idea of how an addiction can cause problems in many areas of a person's life - work, school, family, friends, legal, etc. And I know how difficult it can be to stop an addictive habit, whether it is an addiction to substances, or an "addiction" to a particular type of behavior. Meet with me and see if you agree that I know what I'm talking about and have some good ideas about what you might do to change your habits.

It's easy to see the addiction of the alcoholic, drug user and gambler. Many will not acknowledge the closet addicts with daily activities like eating, sex, exercise, shopping to name a few. How do you know if you have an addiction problem? If your behavior is causing problems in your life, at work, school, home or relationships. There's a good chance you have an addiction problem. Once the neurotransmitters are develop and arouse triggers releasing dopamine in the brain the rest is history. It's no longer your game. There are many counseling issues you can use self-help, but addiction is not one of them. Individual, group therapy and 12 steps group are necessary for full recovery.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Sexual addiction is difficult to overcome because the addict believes she / he is in control of the addiction. Unfortunately, when the 'urge' hits, the individual is overwhelmed by the need to satisfy the craving for a sexual 'fix'. Guilt, remorse, and shame is a part of the unending cycle. At Christ Centered Counseling clients are taught biblical principles that assist them with overcoming their sexual addiction.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.
