Angela Pham, MS, MA, LPC

Psychotherapist

2500 Wilcrest Dr. Suite 410, Houston, Texas

I have extensive experience working with individuals and families that struggle with addiction. The shame and stigma surrounding addiction makes asking for help difficult and the disease of addiction is hard for families to understand. Personal therapy in conjunction with medication management, and 12-step or group attendance has been shown to be highly effective for those wishing to overcome substance, sex, gambling, eating, or gaming addictions.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Addictions steal people’s lives and break apart families. An addiction can be described as any compulsive and habitual behavior that limits your freedom. This includes alcoholism, substance abuse and dependency, drug abuse, compulsive gambling, pornography and sexual addiction, and others. Addictions have several warning signs, such as increased secrecy, withdrawing from family/friends, fatigue, failure to meet responsibilities, declining health, defensiveness, mood shifts, and demanding more privacy. The addictive cycle is hard to stop, but it can but it can be broken. As professional counselors we can help you break the chains of 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.

I think of addiction generally as a habit out of control. You can learn to change your habits and thus control your behavior. Of course some addictions are so out of control they require detox and residential treatment. That is not the kind of addictions I deal with. You can be addicted to anything: pornography, alcohol, drugs, sex, or even chocolate.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Addiction involves compulsive behavior that can gradually lead you to feel out of control with your life. Addiction comes in many forms and can include addiction to substances, people (love addiction), food, or work. Our approach is to help you manage unhelpful compulsive behaviors while also working on underlying causes. Often, this involves identifying and dealing with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, or feelings of emptiness and inadequacy. The process of recovery helps you take control of your life, regain an identity of worth and value, develop healthy coping strategies, and manage difficult emotions.
